Intelligent pallet labeling technology
is affordable, easy to implement
and dramatically reduces
So why aren’t more companies using it?
Pallet labeling is a seemingly simple fulfillment process, however how well it is handled has a profound effect on business performance.
Pallet Labels represent physical inventory and enable warehouse management, enterprise resource planning (ERP), logistics, and automated systems to track and trace items.
Internally, incorrect labels, missing labels, or extra labels can lead to inaccurate inventory counts, untrustworthy financial statements, and wasted scheduling efforts. Externally, labeling issues can disrupt the activities of downstream cu¬stomers, such as manufacturers and assemblers, and raise concerns over the supplier’s commitment to product quality and service.
Companies fall short on pallet labeling for a couple of reasons. First, a lot of the work — from data input to applying labels and correcting records — is performed manually, leaving it prone to human error and behavior. Second, the basic labeling solutions many companies piece together are often unreliable and disconnected from core systems. While overcoming these challenges has been difficult for process owners, engineered solutions now entering the marketplace will enable organizations to finally automate the last mile of their increasingly digitized supply chains.
