Success in supply-chain operations requires skillful
people, equipment, inventory and processes. Real-time enterprise
visibility data helps manufacturing and logistics operations
significantly cut costs, improve productivity, reduce errors and speed
Visibility data can boost logistical efficiency across industries and in both indoor and outdoor environments, including yards, parking lots, factory shop floors, retail stores, transportation hubs, warehouses and distribution centers.
A large cross-docking yard or distribution center operated by a retailer, distributor or a Third Party Logistics (3PL) provider can have thousands of trailers and containers on site at any time, scheduling loading and unloading into over one hundred different loading docks. When a trailer is placed in the wrong location or incorrectly recorded, it must be located manually before loading can commence. Facilities often spend several hours each day auditing the yard and searching for particular trailers, incurring significant labor costs as well as fuel costs and lost productivity. Full visibility of trailer and container locations, when used in conjunction with yard management software, can dramatically reduce these costs.
Many industries employ reusable containers to carry finished goods through the supply chain. Examples of containers include pallets, plastic boxes, larger metal and plastic containers and canisters for gases and liquids among others. The use of such containers is typically not managed efficiently: businesses have more containers than they need because they have difficulties managing supply and demand. Knowledge of where containers are at any time and how to find the closest containers for a particular need can both cut the number of containers used in a business and also eliminate problems created by shortages of containers.
Manual tracking of assets is a labor-intensive and error-prone task. In industries such as manufacturing, the task is particularly challenging. ProductiveT RTLS and barcode visibility solutions enable accurate inventory tracking, real-time monitoring and movement management of work in process, tools, equipment and key personnel. Equipment utilization improves and staff productivity increases. Learn the true cost of making a product by tracking the actual activities that goes into making it. From the time raw material comes in to the time finished products ship out, you will be in control.
