Automate Monitoring of Shipment Processing and Verification
Use RAIN RFID to automate shipment tracking through dock doors for efficient processing and operational insights with Smart Label Solutions and Impinj.
Greater efficiency through streamlined operations
Busy warehouses have products, pallets, and containers constantly moving in and out of the facility. Correcting shipments sent to the wrong location, or containing wrong or missing items, costs time and money and erodes customer trust. Manually entering shipping information is slow and fraught with errors, and hand-scanning barcodes can be a tedious process. When information is manually entered or systems are not integrated, the information about shipments can be inaccurate, and not readily available when needed, resulting in a lack of visibility into the status and contents of containers and shipments.
The D-Series™ from SLS uses RAIN RFID to automate data collection, remove opportunities for human error, and increase accuracy and efficiency—ensuring that warehouses run smoothly and efficiently.
Our supply chain customers require the enterprise-grade performance and reliability delivered by the Impinj R700 reader integrated with the SLS D-Series™ dock door solution. The new Impinj R700 reader enables us to deliver superior performance by using lower transmit power to better control our read zone.
Automated tracking of shipment movement
The SLS D-Series™, when placed on points of transition, captures real-time shipping and receiving data about each tagged item as it passes through the dock doors. With either side-by-side, overhead, or overhead off-set readers, the SLS D-Series™leverages the Impinj R700 RAIN RFID reader to:
- Identify thousands of items per second, without the need for batteries or direct-line-of sight
- Deliver superior performance by using lower transmit power to better control the read zone
- Provide powerful insights into shipping patterns and service level metrics to further optimize your operations
Easy, flexible integration and powerful performance
The SLS D-Series™ is easy to integrate within your enterprise operations. The solution is completely plug and play, with no need for servers or A/C power, and runs at extremely low RFID power. The antennas are designed for wide-range coverage and to eliminate adjacent dock door reads. This is a highly robust and scalable solution.
More efficient shipping processes along the supply chain
With real-time movement detection capabilities, you can build more efficient shipping and receiving plans and streamline operations. Optimizing supply chain processes and your facility operations means that your equipment and vehicles can spend less time waiting and more time working, resulting in additional labor savings. SLS customers have seen up to 25% increased efficiency during the shipping process.
Real-time visibility for real-time decision making
Real-time data about tagged items, pallets, and containers passing through dock doors is collected automatically at the time of shipping and receiving. This real-time accurate data provides timely insights into your enterprise operations, and supply chain visibility to enable improved proactive planning and management.
Accurate order shipping and receiving
Designed to work in a range of environments with a variety of mounting configurations to provide superior RAIN RFID zone coverage, the SLS D-Series reduces stray reads, automatically adjusts system performance, and enables accurate tag data delivery. Tags placed on individual items, pallets, or containers will be read accurately to ensure that the right goods are on the right truck—driving up to 99% accurate inventory shipping and receiving.
