A custom warehouse label solution serves a variety of purposes in the warehouse setting. For one, it makes operations much more efficient by providing a consistent framework for inventory control and navigation. It also enhances the visual appeal and overall organization within a warehouse facility – adding capabilities such as pulling up a product’s entire history with a simple scan. But warehouses go beyond merely marking racks and shelves. Here’s a look at the many areas of a warehouse that can be labeled for increased efficiency.
Durable Floor Labels
Often overlooked, the warehouse floor is actually a valuable place for bar code labels. But warehouses are high-traffic, with heavy forklifts and other equipment that are simply too much wear and tear for a standard bar code label to withstand. Camcode offers specially designed, durable bar code labels that can be affixed to your building’s floor using either a permanent, pressure-sensitive adhesive with peel-and-stick functionality or concrete anchor attachments.
Camcode’s durable warehouse floor labels feature a beveled aluminum frame that protects the proprietary Metalphoto® bar code label from the stress of frequent, heavy foot and machine traffic common in the warehouse setting.
Rack labels are fairly common in the warehouse setting, and they’re essential for streamlining the workflow. Warehouse rack labels enable staff to quickly and easily pinpoint the right products for stocking, inventory control and shipping. Camcode’s warehouse rack label solutions come in a variety of options to meet the needs of even the most complex warehouse facility. For example, our multi-level rack labels eliminate the need for long-range scanners while still providing easy identification.
Other options include magnetic rack labels, useful for settings in which products are frequently relocated. Instead of dealing with the hassle of removing permanently-affixed labels or avoiding bleed-through from old labels that can interfere with scanning accuracy, magnetic rack labels can be easily relocated with no sticky residue left behind.
Camcode also offers cold-storage rack labels for applications in which bar code identification is needed in extreme-cold environments. This is common in the food storage industry. Our cold-storage rack labels come with permanent, pressure-sensitive adhesive that can withstand consistent exposure to temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit, in addition to damp environments. Another option is our cold-storage rack placards, which use a mechanical attachment and an aluminum backer – these labels can withstand temperatures as low at -40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Aisle identification is equally as important as rack identification, especially in terms of efficiency. It takes time to enter each aisle to scan rack labels for identifying the proper area. But custom aisle signs make it easy to identify broader areas of the facility, so staff can more easily pinpoint specific products without wasting valuable time. Aisle warehouse signs are used to identify rack and shelf ends and offer the same high visibility as our hanging and fixed-mount warehouse signs.
Custom Warehouse Signs
Camcode also offers a variety of custom warehouse signs for different purposes, such as outdoor dock signs, hanging warehouse signs and fixed-mount warehouse signs that can be printed with either large, crisp text or barcodes for easy readability. These signs offer benefits beyond identification – they can be printed with color-coding options and graphics to provide directional cues to improve the traffic flow.
Pallets, Containers and Totes
When you use Camcode for a custom warehouse label solution, we can provide a seamless identification and tracking system that covers your entire facility from ceiling to floor. In addition to durable floor labels, aisle and dock signs, and rack labels, warehouses benefit from bar code identification down to the pallet and container level.
With custom bar code labels designed for use with returnable containers, totes, and trays, as well as pallets, you can ship items from your facility and quickly move returned containers to the proper area. Because warehouses have a high flow of products moving in and out of the facility at any given time, returnable container bar code labels drastically reduce the time it takes to reorganize and reallocate these items on return.
When you choose to implement a custom warehouse bar code label solution from Camcode, our experts work with you every step of the way to identify the right products for the right applications to completely streamline workflow and efficiency. Warehouses using custom bar code label and signage solutions benefit from increased profits through enhanced productivity and a seamless flow of products in and out of the facility to keep up with the fast pace of today’s supply chains.
