Codetrack garment distribution
To handle increasing demand, a designer and distributor of sports and work jackets need to track imports from suppliers and despatches to customers.
The company’s first requirement was to identify goods arriving from the factories and match quantities to orders.
The final system supports the whole process from receipt and putaway to picking and despatch, including cross-docking of bulk orders.
The Codetrack automated data capture systems covers:
Hand terminals enable staff to match goods to orders and do online quality checks at the point of receipt.
Problems are immediately identified and resolved with suppliers.
The receiving process identifies bulk ship orders and send the good directly to despatch.
Identify bulk orders during receiving
The warehousemen scan batch and location bar codes for every transfer in and out of stock to ensure location records are always up to date. Picking from known locations is fast and accurate.
Staff verify all consignments using hand held terminals to scan the boxes on the pallets and to check delivery labels.
The Codetrack system allowed the warehouse staff to handle increasing demand.
They were able to:
- Identify shortages in goods received.
- Ship goods faster.
- Eliminate mistakes and consequential costs.
- Increase productivity.
