Asset management is vital to the warehousing and distribution industry, likely more than any other industry here. That’s because keeping track of inventory and sending products to the right locations (asset tracking) is the core of what this industry is all about. In addition to being able to better manage one-off inventories of consumer goods, what’s more important is the reusable nature of asset management technologies for pallets and barrels. These items may be used for multiple years to ship products back and forth.
Whether your asset is sitting in a storage facility or actively in transit, it has to be properly tagged so that you can keep track of it. Large shipping containers, pallets and individual packages can all use asset tags so that your inventory management is not compromised by harsh handling conditions.
Durable and reusable RFID tags offer great benefits here, as well. RFID tags are often built to withstand years of use, even in hot and dirty delivery environments. Automating the QA process on load verification also helps to minimize missed deliveries to stores, which is a problem that costs distribution companies $25-30 million per year nationwide.
