Automatic identification and data collection play a critical role in today’s increasingly complex, highly automated supply chains. Inside the distribution center, identification systems ensure items move along the right path, informing proper divert points, value-added services, and outbound destinations. Elsewhere in the supply chain, traceability initiatives for food, beverage and pharmaceutical operations depend on scannable labels, as do step-by-step updates for direct-to-consumer delivery.
MHS has experience with a broad range of identification solutions and the expertise to leverage these data-driven systems for the highest performance and accuracy. From barcodes and scanning devices to radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and dimensioning equipment, take advantage of reliable, best-fit technologies to track and optimize storage, replenishment, order fulfillment, sortation and other distribution center processes.
Scan with a fixed-position reader or hand-held scanner to transmit data through systems for further processing and use.
Transmit information embedded in a microchip or polymer with a smaller antenna; no line-of-sight or direct contact required.
Measure item dimensions and volume, helping determine the appropriate location for storage, placement on outbound shipping containers and more.
Enhance the data collection process by using two or more technologies.
