Warehouse Management Challenges
Warehouse management brings unique challenges. Stocktaking is a painstaking and inaccurate process that involves countless hours of manually scanning barcodes. In a warehouse with millions of items, locating a specific product can be a logistical nightmare. The sheer quantity of items that go through a warehouse daily make it easy for goods to be lost, which cuts into profits.
What if there was a way to solve all these problems? What if you could cut your stocktaking time from days to minutes while improving accuracy? What if you could easily locate any item in your warehouse, even among millions? What if you could almost eliminate lost items? How much would the time and money savings be worth to you?
RFID is the Solution
RFID is the technology that can save warehouses a tremendous amount of time, while improving accuracy at the same time. It makes stocktaking lightning fast and enables you to find items in seconds.
The RFID reader transmits a radio signal with an integrated or external antenna and tags that are located on each object receive the signal and transmit the data they contain back to the reader. Compared to barcode systems, this enables significantly higher speed, accuracy and data availability.
RFID Applications for Warehousing
RFID for warehousing uses the Ultra High Frequency RFID, which has the greatest range out of the most common types of RFID. The two main uses of RFID in the Warehousing sector are inventory management and asset management. Learn more about them at the links below.
