Smart pallet racking labels
An essential part of the logistical process is an efficiently laid out warehouse. The ideal routing combined with good inventory management, and of course clear identification of your pallet racking and order pick locations are all part of a successful warehouse. With a proven track record in manufacturing custom labels, ONE2ID is your source for any and all questions about logistical and industrial labels.
The dynamic 24-hour society we live in puts great demands on the planning processes in warehouses and distribution centres. There is an ever-growing need for faster delivieries which puts even more pressure on warehouse managers to increase their logistical output, thereby increasing the risk of unexpected errors due to fatigued and stressed-out employees. Choosing the right type of pallet racking labels can reduce some of the pressure, increase the output and help reduce the number of errors.
Enhance the workflow
When planning a warehouse (re)design, the choice of pallet racking labels is instrumental in improving warehouse efficiency. Scanning of the barcodes on your racking labels needs to be quick and easy, to contribute to a fast and efficient flow of warehouse goods.
ONE2ID can create your racking labels to suit your needs. In order to determine the type of label required, our label experts prefer to visit you at work to assess your work environment and listen to your wishes. We want to make sure you will receive the type of label that is ideally suited to your application. This means we have to take a look at:
- The type of pallet storage racks.
- The colour and design of your load beams and upright frames.
- The dimensions of your load beams and upright frames (height, width, depth).
- The type of material and adhesive your current racking labels are made up of (permanent, non-permanent, magnet).
- Your current label design (positioning of the barcode, the use of arrows, the design of the human readable information).
- The distance between the operator, the scanner and the labels.
- The use of light sources (fluorescent light, LED etc.).
- The use of barcodes, plain text, colour and arrows.
We aim to create an efficient label design to keep you from wasting precious time and money. We look, for instance, at the number of characters included in the barcode and the way we can translate those into human readable information which is easily recognisable for your operators.
We can also offer advice on the benefits of colour in identifying your pallet racking locations. The use of colour-coded labels on the lower load beam as well as corresponding height colours on the higer beams ensures easy identification of your pallet racking levels and pick storage locations. The simple addition of colour to your labels reduces the amount of order picking errors and increases the number of satisfied customers. As an added bonus, colour recognition eases the burden on your employees. They will experience less fatigue and stay alert for a longer period of time, which makes them less susceptible to making mistakes.
A well thought-out label design with the right barcode language and the addition of colour on your pallet and rack and shelf labels, creates a better warehouse workflow, which results in less errors and a higher turnover.
