Eskimo / Datex / Jamison RFID Case Study. RFID How it Works: RFID portals are located at the ends of aisles. As pallets with RFID tags are moved by forklifts into the aisles, the information is transmitted If integrated into a WMS, location can be automatically provided to that system. This eliminates hours of labor for the warehouse workers in trying to find lost inventory.

The Challenge: Reduce the time and labor associated with locating the lost product in the 10.9 million cubic foot 32,000 pallet position cold storage warehouse, reduce/eliminate mishandled pallets at putaway and lost pallets at picking, eliminate $208,000 in costs associated with locating lost inventory + $25,000 in annual chargebacks, restore customer trust.

The Solution: Installed an RFID reader at the end of 20 aisles within its warehouse used to confirm where pallets are located as they are put away or removed. Datex developed middleware: from RFID into WMS and loaded pallets can be quickly located when required for outbound shipments.

Results: Projected an annual savings of $233,000, greatly reduced the amount of labor needed to search for missing goods, and helped prevent the need for customers to have to pay for missing goods.
