Dock Doors with RFID
Bolster Your Shipping and Receiving
Cutdown on manual shipping and receiving and take advantage of RFID for your dock doors. Attached RFID at the pallet, case or item level to assist in workflows and increase operational efficiencies. Quickly determine any variances and take action!
How it works
1. Tag Items
RFID Tags are attached at the pallet, case or individual item level. This unit of measure where RFID tags are associated may differ from business to business. Often times, existing labeling may be replaced with an RFID label or a dedicated RFID label may be added on.
2. Configure READ POINTS
Configure RFID Enabled Portals or read points. RFID portals read the goods as they pass through the portals at the dock doors. Additional input and output sensors can be associated at these portals for data collection and operational feedback. Examples include electric eyes to capture product directionality as well as light stacks to provide user feedback.
3. GAIN VALUABLE INSIGHT
Gain Valuable Insight – as data is collected at each dock door, capture intelligent data and quickly be notified of issues. For example, when loading a truck, as the RFID label is being read at the dock door portals, if the product is expired, flash a red light indicating to the user that something is incorrect.
Finished Goods Tracking
Track finished goods pallets from manufacturing to distribution. Attached an RFID label in lieu of a traditional pallet license plate label. As product is moving out of manufacturing to distribution, use RFID to quickly and accurately update your ERP system.
Pick / Shipment Verification
When shipping off a picklist, incorrect or surplus items are always an expensive mistake. With RFID, after picking or right before shipping, cross verify that each items that is on a pallet matches with the expected picklist. If done manually, this task can be prone to error and time consuming, but with RFID, the workflow can be automated and provide invaluable business intelligence.
