Pcdata USA Reports Saving Millions in Material Handling Industry
East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/04/2013 -- Material handling can constitute as much as 50 percent of total product cost and effective handling of materials can help minimize this cost. When handling costs are reduced the overall unit cost is reduced as a direct result. Loss of Material Handling Equipment (MHE) is probably one of the most pressing issues facing the material handling industry today. Millions worth of dollars are lost in baskets trays and racks. Most tracking solutions turn out to be too expensive, only because there are so many units that need tracking. As is the case with most breakthrough solutions, Pcdata USA’s MHE tracking solution is a spinoff from solving a related, but different problem.
Through our logistics automation solutions Pcdata USA traces product to its final delivery point. The exact number of MHE delivered to any given delivery point has been recorded. During product drops, the driver confirms the amount of product and the MHE that was delivered at the site through Pcdata USA’s Proof of Delivery handheld application. The driver then can use the same handheld unit to enter how many empty dollies, baskets, trays, and racks are loaded onto the truck.
