Warehouse Retailer Saves Big on Labor Costs

The Problem

This major retailer shaves pennies in any way possible to keep its customer prices low. The customer realized that the fork truck drivers had to get off their trucks numerous times per load to scan pallet barcodes before driving them into the trailer. The customer wondered how much time – and money – could be saved if the drivers didn’t get off their trucks.

Solution Design

4SIGHT Asset Track software tracks RFID tags placed on each pallet. With RFID readers mounted at each dock door, the pallet ID process becomes automatic and the driver doesn’t have to worry about scanning a barcode for each and every pallet. The drivers stay on their trucks and just load pallets.

saved per trailer load

Bottom Line

The initial study proved to save 10-15 minutes per trailer load. With 150+ trailers being shipped each day, the labor savings are impressive.
