The use of block storage technology is not a big problem for an IT-supported warehouse and can offer the great advantage of movement optimisation for loading vehicles. However, this can be tricky if the stock is not only processed automatically, but also manually.
It is a must to verify that every asset is at the right place. To support this in a way suitable for machines, RFID enables rapid identification of asset, block and shelf spaces. By using a hand-held computer with integrated RFID reader, the warehouse keeper also has an additional check that his work is being performed correctly.
Especially in cold stores where reading optical identification can be a problem due to moisture, dew or ice layers on packaging, RFID is not affected by these interferences.
