Once goods have been received and accepted into a distribution centre, they are put into storage areas and become part of the inventory. Moving products into storage is fulfilled either through automated means – conveyors, autonomous guided vehicles, cranes, and plastic totes – or manually using forklift trucks.
Ensuring that optimal inventory levels are maintained in the warehouse or distribution centre requires the accurate recording of product and location information during this put-away process. Any subsequent product picking and knowing when to replenish stock levels become far easier to manage, as well as meeting traceability goals.
Datalogic provides a full range of logistics solutions for both automated and manual put-away. Stationary industrial scanners, mobile computers, vehicle-mount computers, and handheld computers are all available, with full integration into most warehouse management systems (WMS). All the products are ruggedly built to ensure that logistics performance is never compromised in even the harshest of working environments.
