Checkpoint releases new DC solutions for retailers

Feb '16
Checkpoint Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, has released two new distribution centre (DC) solutions, called RFID Box Tunnel and RFID Hanging Garment Tunnel, which enable retailers and manufacturers to be more productive and improve shipping accuracy.

The DC solutions enable retailers to increase revenue and performance by verifying items within each bulk shipment are accurate. Any errors can be instantly identified and triaged before the shipment leaves DCs, allowing DCs to make necessary corrections and avoid added cost and time. Valid shipments generate automatic advanced shipping notification and are sent for delivery. Once received at the intended retail location, using a simple RFID handheld scanner or RFID reader, associates can instantly and accurately verify shipments and ensure authenticity as boxes are unloaded from the delivery vehicle, according to a press release.

The latest hardware solutions are available in multiple sizes to accommodate standard conveyor systems and require minimal modifications. The tunnels are constructed of durable, fabricated metal, and are insulated for sound and RF shielding to eliminate both noise and stray RFID tag reads. They mount directly to the manufacturing floor to ensure stability.

The RFID Box Tunnel was designed for totes, cartons, and boxes in any DC environment and does not impact existing production performance. It is offered in two sizes to accommodate most standard
conveyor systems.

The RFID Hanging Garment Tunnel was designed for hanging goods and, like the RFID Box version, works in any DC environment, doesn't impact production performance, and is offered in two sizes.

Uwe Sydon, senior vice president of innovation and technology, Checkpoint said, “Retailers and manufacturers today increasingly understand the benefits of RFID, and the significance of tagging at source for the full source-to-shopper experience and revenue benefits throughout the supply chain. With our two new DC solutions, retailers can rest assured that manufacturers and distribution centres are getting it right from the start.” (GK)
