RFID for Shipping and Receiving Functions
Automate Shipping and Receiving at the Dock Door with RFID
Save Time and Money with RFID Technology
Distribution centers and receiving centers need to operate at optimal efficiency. By automating at the dock door location, companies can gain time, reduce operational expense, and improve overall experience.
Automating at the point of shipping and receiving will help you gain insight into traffic patterns, service level metrics, and other analytics based on accurate data about your shipments.
Using a RFID platform, shipping and receiving will be able to automatically identify and record thousands of items per second without direct line of sight at a distance of up to 30 feet. Data will integrate directly into the existing shipping and receiving software.
Benefits of Automating Shipping and Receiving with RFID
- Get the right stuff on the right truck, every time
Read tags that are on individual items, pallets or containers to ensure that the right goods are on the right truck, every time. Verify shipments against the manifest and alert your team when a shipment is incomplete, contains the wrong items or is loaded on the wrong truck.
- Track the direction of movement in and out of doorways
Differentiate the direction of movement of items for greater flexibility. This allows for cross-docking operations and double-stacked forklift loads going in one door to drop off one item, then through the next door to drop off the second item.
- Flexible reader installation for any environment
Eliminate collisions with forklifts that happen with readers placed on posts in doorways.
- Gain real-time, accurate data about the movement of goods in your operation
Integrate real-time, item-level RAIN RFID data into enterprise shipping and logistics applications. The integration is proven and simple. You’ll have accurate information that enables your team to make key business decisions.
- High performance. High data integrity. High confidence.
Gain confidence that all the data about shipments is correct in the system of record. Our platform includes algorithms, diagnostics and advanced capabilities that eliminate stray reads, automatically adjust system performance and ensure accurate tag data delivery.
- Track reusable shipping containers and other assets
Add RAIN RFID tags to reusable shipping containers for automated management of where the containers have gone and when they’ve been returned. Automate the process of keeping track of reusable containers that are shipped out and returned to your business.
