Also known as pallet labeling, license plating moves merchandise more quickly from one location to another through the warehouse. It is extremely useful when it becomes difficult to track, locate, or identify pallets or cases throughout a warehouse’s infrastructure.
Warehouses are able to better optimize their space and business operations if they have a better understanding of their stock inventory. Manual data entry wastes time and can be fraught with human errors, but with one scan of a license plate, all of the necessary information can be accessed, leading to more efficient inventory control.
Since inventory is easily traced, license plates make managing warehouses overall less complicated. It can assist with picking the correct stock in a timely manner, faster material movement, and accurately planning for future inventory needs.
License plating can be found in both inbound and outbound processes. Shipments leaving facilities can be packaged for efficient transactions and warehouses receiving shipments can easily group products together, reducing the number of scans needed and overall reducing the time spent processing orders.
