How to get better control over your Supply Chain Business - Must Read

The Mpact Plastic containers (MPC) team is so excited to share something with you that we’ve been working on for a while.

Data management is fast becoming a critical aspect across all businesses globally. We’ve seen the importance of creating products that are IoT enabled which can help make keeping track of stock manageable.

For this reason, we’ve created a track & trace system to help improve visibility in your crate pool, as well as across your broader supply chain. Today, we’ll touch on this, along with sharing details about the solution and how it can benefit your operations. 

 

Who Needs Plastic Crate Asset Tracking?

All businesses that use plastic crates in their supply chain can benefit from having a formal tracking system in place. Crates are an integral part of operations so the right tracking solution can benefit systems and processes especially when replacements are due. This enhances the transparency of your supply chain and starts to integrate new data sets that can be used for analysing output and performance. Relevant and specific information results in making informed day-to-day decisions. 


The Best Ways to Track a Plastic Crate

Tracking each plastic crate in your operations might be something that hasn’t been done in the past. The power of technology means that a software solution can now have you saving time, money and becoming more eco-friendly. MPC’s crate track & trace system allows you to keep an eye on your crates at all times, meaning resources can be diverted to other important areas to create effective outputs. 


More About MPC’s Asset Track & Trace RFID Technology

MPC’s asset track & trace RFID technology helps trace the path of crates through the fitment of ultra-high frequency (UHF) and low frequency (LF) RFID — otherwise known as radio frequency identification — tags.

These tags link up to the system we refer to as a track & trace system. This helps with efficient and effective management of stock pools, benefits resource planning and can also assist with verifying proof of receipts.

Delivery times and locations (based on where the crates were last scanned) can also be verified, pointing out where there are lags or delays that have to be addressed to keep operations viable. 


Using The System Across Various Products

Although perfect for tracking crates, the system is applicable to a wide range of products, including Wheelie Bins and Jumbo Bins®. From allocation to scanning and tracking the stock pool, it takes care of keeping track of how important products in your supply chain move from one area to the next.

Talk to us about the best ways to integrate the system into your operations. Before you know it, the system will be an integral part of your operations, assisting with the overall growth targets of the business and beyond.
