The pandemic has brought about a revolution, both in the way we relate to each other and in the way we conduct business.
The increase in logistics operations, accelerated by the rise of e-commerce, is leading more and more companies to implement RFID technology in their businesses and supply chains. The aim is to improve both the speed of response and their service to their customers.
Working life, regardless of the business sector you work in, always involves a number of risks to the well-being of workers. These negative implications may be of greater or lesser severity depending on the type of potential harm; however, in either case, it is advisable to take measures to avoid unnecessary accidents.
Food safety is essential. Unfortunately, history tells us that there have been several cases where incidences of different scope have been detected, being in some occasions, very dangerous for human health.
For this reason, it has been necessary to develop legislation to regulate the control of the origin, production and distribution of food products. From the origin and quality of raw materials, through the manufacturing process, storage and logistics, distribution at points of sale to the final consumer.
Traceability can be defined as the documentation or collection of data on a certain product or merchandise and the route it takes until it reaches the customer.
There are several types of traceability, although today we are going to focus on two: internal traceability and external traceability. Each of them has its own uses, tools and customized levels.
We believe that when it comes to using an RFID system it is really important that you know how to do it without having to make a big investment of time and previous knowledge.
Warehouse management has been one of the most arduous tasks since teh beggining of times. Knowing what is there, where it is or when a product or raw material has been moved is a challenge; it also brings with it problems, errors and significant losses.
RFID technology has come into our lives to transform the way we work and implement production processes in a simple way without much effort and cost.
If you don’t know it yet, we will tell you that this type of technology is a product identification system that offers great advantages compared to traditional barcodes and other technologies.
Nowadays, companies that seek to stand out from the competition are the ones that really succeed. It is not enough just to offer a good product or service. The experience of both, customers and employees, is fundamental.
We can understand any company or business as a whole. A unique entity where every detail counts and where a satisfied employee is a key piece to increase the profitability of a business.
When it comes to RFID it goes way beyond data storage and retrieving it through radio waves. It could be one of your most powerful allies if you know how to make the most of it. And this is why switching to RFID from traditional methods might be one of the best decision you’ll ever made. This are the main benefits from this technology:
- Shipment Verification
Automate tracking of shipments moving in and out of dock doors for efficient processes and accurate data in your shipping systems. Gain insights that can further automate processes and drive operational efficiencies.
- Optimize Operation
Automate the tracking and movement of goods and assets to gain item-level insights that identify bottlenecks and traffic patterns, so you can create an efficient system that keeps shipments moving.
- Asset Management
Automate check-in and -out procedures, maintenance alerts, and location monitoring to get the most out of your investments. Know where assets are, and if they’re ready for shipment and spend less time looking for items and more time using them.
- Warehouse Inventory Location
Track every item in your warehouse so you know where everything is and can easily meet customer demands. Optimize storage and product movement, and ensure that you have what you need to run your business efficiently.
- Unique Tracking
Each RFID has a microchip able to contain information that can be placed to identify individually every product instead of using a barcode to identify a set of items. This allows the products to be individually tracked throughout the entire supply chain.
Data management is probably one of the most underrated issues in production chains. Most of the time this is due to the fact that we know it is important but we do not know in depth the potential that has a correct data management, which goes beyond a control in the production chain and that helps us and is essential in the immediate decision making as well as in the medium and long term.(more…)
