by Barry Barcode
Logistics is all about providing efficient, timely service to keep your customers up and running. Providing and maintaining customer satisfaction in this extremely competitive market is paramount. Being able to provide efficient tracking and tracing of shipped products enhances customer loyalty and continued business levels.
It is very important for all stakeholders in the logistics supply chain to work together to effectively develop track/trace accountability to provide integrity and process controls within their systems. But, like with any complex supply chain system, effectively keeping track of all this data and paperwork is a large undertaking. The data included in tracking/tracing includes purchase order #s, container #s, bill of lading #s, customer info, item counts, weight, status, delivery date, and freight charges. It involves the delivered materials used to create the finished product, storing the inventory until picking, then packing and labeling, shipping and delivery of it to its destination.
To improve the accuracy, efficiency, and reliability of your services, your processes, and meeting your customers’ needs, as well as, your productivity and profitability, track/trace solutions including barcoding and RFID technologies are effective and proven technologies to help meet your logistics needs.
