Almost all of E&PS’s shipments to Wal-Mart are full loads. However, for its less-than-pallet-load “partial shipments”—orders of 100 or so calculators—E&PS bundles two to three cases together via shrink wrap as a unit load to ship to a DC or direct to a particular store.
Larstan Business Reports, Potomac, MD, held an executive roundtable in Chicago in December. The panel of RFID analysts and solutions providers was moderated by John Persinos, Larstan editorial director.
Wulftec® stretch wrapper users can now increase the reliability of signal capture with the company’s wireless RFID. Available on all Wulftec semi-automatic and automatic machines, this wireless reader is attached to the machine’s film-feeding unit, allowing it to read RFID tags continuously as the pallet load rotates during the wrapping process.
