The RF/barcode scanning module supports the use of mobile scanners for activities such as goods in checks, relocation, order picking and goods out checks. All scan data is directly registered in Nekovri Dynamics / 3PL Dynamics, providing continuous real-time insight into warehouse activities. This ensures grip and control on the logistics processes on the work floor. Via bar code scanning the system knows exactly what goods are located where, down to the tiniest packing unit. That yields significant savings on costly storage space.
RF/barcode scanners in the WMS
Your team uses wireless scanners to quickly and simply register warehouse activities in the WMS. They scan the barcodes on the products and, where necessary, the picking location too. This entails double verification of whether a picking action has been carried out correctly, and mistakes are kept to a minimum.
GS1 and SSCC labeling format
As standard, this scanning module contains various label formats including, GS1 labels, plus SSCC code. The labels can be made up entirely to preference, using your preferred data and barcode(s). In this way you equip the goods with the right label upon goods in or goods out, as agreed with your customer; for example, complete SSCC labels, labels with specific party information, destination or loading labels.
Interpreting customer barcodes
Products equipped with barcode labels upon arrival simplify your goods in process. The SSCC interpretation is standard, however, your customer could use their own barcode logic that is specified in the WMS. Despite this deviation from the SSCC standard, you can still understand the customer-specific label. Among others, this helps to retrieve the product type, the quantity, and the storage life (best before).
Barcode/ label printer
If the goods are not equipped with barcodes upon receipt, you can print off the barcode labels in the WMS. You prompt the label printer directly with a ZPL code. You register the label data with the scanner, or that data is delivered with EDI. The end of the goods in scanning process can result directly in the printing of a barcode label. This enables the product to be tracked throughout the warehouse process.
A more in-depth label, such as the GS1/SSCC, can be used in tracking the supply chain.
