Manufacturer Tracks Inventory in Real Time Via RFID

A packaging manufacturer delivers quality-finished cartons to companies in a variety of industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals and personal care. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the company’s warehouse uses robots to move pallets to conveyors to prepare them for distribution. The current system can identify when each pallet is loaded, sized and placed into or removed from storage. With the system in place, the firm can now prevent errors and gain a more detailed inventory of where each pallet is located. Hear how the company can share that data with its customers, enabling them to view which products have been manufactured by inputting an order number linked to specific pallet IDs, and thereby learn whether those cartons are in storage or have been shipped.
