Folding-Carton Manufacturer Gains Visibility With RFID
preparing to expand its RFID system that currently enables automatic identification of pallets loaded with its products as they move through a robotic storage system. With the RFID system—provided originally by Miles Technology, an RFID company that was acquired last year by Barcording Inc.—the company can identify when each pallet is loaded, sized and placed into or taken out of storage. The expansion, planned for later this year, consists of installing an RFID reader at the loading dock, in order to extend that visibility to the shipping of goods. With it, Accord Carton can prevent errors and gain a more detailed inventory of where each pallet is, and when, which it can also share with its customers.
