Due to RFID, the biggest furniture manufacturer in Lithuania can track and trace their pallets at all times
The biggest furniture manufacturer in Lithuania wanted to know exactly where their pallets with furniture were on which spot at all times. They already tried different RFID labels but these labels didn’t gave the result they wanted. The furniture manufacturer asked Vygeja to find a solution for their project.
Vygeja found in Cisper the best distributor for advice and supply of the suitable RFID tags for this project.
To track and trace the pallets with furniture, Vygeja used Tageos EOS-500 labels. These labels were put on the corner of the cardboard where the furniture was wrapped in.
In the warehouse there are 5 gates with RFID antennas. Also the forklift has an RFID reader. When a pallet arrives in the warehouse, information is send to the software about the pallet leaving the manufacture lane and entering the warehouse. The pallet can be put anywhere in the warehouse. The location of the pallet can be seen on the map of the warehouse, and also when the pallet leaves the warehouse. The warehouse worker can pick up the pallet to transport it. If accidental the wrong pallet is picked, there will be flashing lights to warn the warehouse worker.
Due to the Tageos tags, the pallets with furniture are easily tracked and traced. The warehouse worker can’t pick up the wrong pallet and on the warehouse map you can see where the pallet is and when it leaves.
At this moment the tags are being used in two of the factories, but within 2 years, the tags will be used in all of their factories.
