Returnable Asset Tracking - Containers, Pallets & Totes

December 15, 2019
Returnable asset tracking

Returnable asset tracking including containers, pallets, totes and other mobile assets are vital to a company's supply chain and delivery fulfillment processes. Traditionally plastic containers, returnable pallets and other mobile container items are well known for being lost, damaged and generally hard to manage due to their portability, environment and heavy usage.  

The mismanagement of returnable containers, pallets, totes, tanks and reusable assets can have dramatic effects on business process including time, labor and costs associated with shipping and receiving.

The inability to track these assets can cause many issues for companies, including an investment in additional assets, equipment, and the extra expense for employees to conduct searches, find work around for operational bottlenecks or perform of manual counts.
