In an increasingly digital world, manufacturers leverage many new channels that require new ways of working in the warehouse. Workers need to process small, custom orders efficiently, in addition to traditional palletized orders. Warehouse automation is the key to maintaining an agile supply chain that meets the needs of a diversity of channels and customers.
Companies that manufacture food and beverage products, drugs, beauty products or other items with consumer safety implications must have full traceability through the supply chain. RFgen automates end-to-end tracking and traceability of both materials and products to help ensure compliance with government regulations, satisfy audits more quickly and minimize the impact of recalls.
