Shipping late or incorrectly hurts your business and impacts your customer relationships. Even with a great shipping department, mistakes happen. Automation can provide many benefits like RFID portals automatically checking what is going though a dock door against what is on the invoice or shipping manifest. Even using handheld barcode scanners improves accuracy and speeds the shipping process.
Handheld barcode or RFID readers allow paperless picking and can reduce loading time and improve accuracy. Similarly, automated systems can accelerate the receiving process and allow data to be entered directly in the ERP system against your initial purchase order.
