The Benefits of Wireless Mobility in Your Warehouse or DC


January 10, 2011

Without mobility, business processes are tied to a desk and paper is used to distribute information. A paper driven process requires data to be handled multiple times leading to inefficient use of time and the greater chances of costly errors.

The growth of wireless technology has changed the nature of how electronic equipment can be used. Procedures that were originally built around a network or electrical connectivity at a fixed location can be modified because the computing, printing, testing, weighing and scanning technology can now be brought to where the work is taking place. Operators & Management now have continual access to real-time information ANYWHERE in a facility as tools needed to automate business processes are always at hand.

Where can mobility be applied?

  • Receiving

  • Cross Docking

  • Put Away

  • Returns

  • Picking

  • Shipping

Typical Mobility
Wireless mobility typically refers to handheld or belt worn portable printers, scanners or headsets. However, these units can be limited in size, capacity and functionality.

Intermodal units, at 278,767 containers and trailers were up 6.7 percent compared to the same week last year and marks the third best week for intermodal ever recorded based on AAR’s data.

LM Group News Editor Jeff Berman recently conducted a wide-ranging interview with Bobby Harris, President and CEO of non asset-based 3PL BlueGrace Logistics about various aspects of the freight transportation market.

It’s small, but senior brass at YRC Worldwide will take it. After nearly seven years of continuing losses in excess of $2.6 billion, the parent of the nation’s second-largest LTL carrier posted a narrow net profit in the third quarter ended Sept. 30.

As was the case for the second quarter, third quarter earnings results for publicly-traded less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers are again strong. Signs of solid earnings results from carriers that have posted earnings to date include tonnage increases, gains in weight per shipment and average daily shipments, higher yield, and revenue per hundredweight.

While the holiday season is known to bring good tidings and cheer to all, it may also come with another thing that is not so pleasant: higher rate freights. That was the thesis of a commentary written by Mark Montague, industry pricing analyst and chief market-watcher for DAT, a Portland, Ore.-based subsidiary of TransCore.
