Pallet and Load Carrier Management

Pallet and Load Carrier Management

A cross-docking service provider collects around 4 million pallets from suppliers each year and picks for the 35 final destinations Just-in-Time. Because of this manual capture, the process was extremely time consuming and heavily buggy.

All goods exit gates, all entrance gates and the passages for quality assurance, the intermediate storage and the packaging are equipped with RFID gates. Any movement of the goods between the different areas is now automatically recorded and can be visualized for the first time in real time.
