When 99% Just Isn’t Enough: Benefits of Improved Read Rates in Logistics Scanning


March 13, 2012

E-commerce is a boon to large retailers and lower-volume Internet fulfillment operations alike, but low read rates from automated sorting equipment can really reduce margins. As shipping volumes grow along with online retail sales, both large retailers and low-volume fulfillment centers are considering a range of improvements to their automated sorting lines to cost-effectively boost their throughput and expand their operations.
