Ship2Save Adopts RFID System
MONTREAL, QC—Ship2Save announced today that California-based Megatrux, Inc. has extended its logistics offering with a cutting-edge asset management and tracking system using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and Ship2Save’s Operation Management System. The multi-dock deployment has enabled Megatrux to automate operations and provide added value services to its clientele.
“With this deployment, we have streamlined our aptitude to increase our supply chain visibility,” said K.C Pelle, executive vice president at Megatrux, Inc. “Our RFID services allow us to display more informative and more accurate information to our customers in real time. It serves as an important tool in delivering key performance indicators [KPI] that enable us to proactively improve day-to-day operations and provide superior end-to-end logistical services. Moving forward, we continue to evaluate new areas of implementation for this technology such as RTLS (Real Time Location Systems) and we anticipate extending our RFID system from our warehousing and distribution to Trans-Pacific container, storage and cross-docking imports.”
The RFID application also serves to provide needed Electronic Product Code (EPC) compliancy for Megatrux clientele with goods destined for Wal-Mart. As the Wal-Mart RFID mandate begins to broaden to 1000+ suppliers, many 3rd Party Logistics (3PL) providers are bridging this technology gap for their clientele by offering RFID services that adhere to Wal-Mart’s requirements.
“The system we’ve provided to Megatrux will serve to provide supply chain compliancy services to their customers, achieve process improvement and data precision in their daily operations, as well as extend their service portfolio with worldwide tracking and asset control features,” added Sam Falsafi, Ship2Save’s director of business development & RFID strategy. “Megatrux will be able to automate inbound handling, inventory reconciliation, speed up trailer loading, improve order assembly and shipping accuracy, as well as provide many other benefits that are inherent within our application in the 3PL environment.”
