An efficiently laid out warehouse is an essential part of the logistical process. The ideal routing combined with smart 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 warehouse pallet racking labels.
Colour-coded racking 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 increasing your logistical output, which in turn increases the risk of unwanted errors due to fatigued and stressed out employees. By colour-coding your pallet racking labels, you can relieve some of the pressure, help reduce the number of errors and improve the day-to-day order flow.
How to colour code your pallet racking
Apply the custom multi-colour pallet racking label to the lower load beam so your operators are able to scan the label. Next, apply the corresponding height colours to the higer beams to ensure easy and effective identification of your pallet racking levels and storage locations. The addition of colour to your labels puts less pressure on your operators which will make them less tired as the day goes on and therefore less susceptible to making mistakes. This smart and simple solution not only reduces the amount of order picking errors but increases the number of satisfied customers.
How to choose your pallet racking labels
ONE2ID can manufacture your pallet racking labels to suit your needs. In order to determine the type of label required, our label experts prefer to visit with you to assess your work environment and listen to your wishes. That way we can make certain you will receive the type of label that is ideally suited to your application. During our visit we’ll 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 of your current pallet racking labels (permanent, non-permanent, magnet).
- Your current label design (positioning of the barcode, arrows, 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.
It’s our aim to create a most effective label design to prevent you from wasting precious time and money. In addition to assessing your work environment, our label experts also look 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.
