Why Do You Need Warehouse Labels?

Warehouse labels, like inventory tags and bar code labels, provide the foundation for an efficient warehouse operation.

Efficient Navigation

Warehouse rack labels streamline picking and stocking processes by taking the guesswork (and potential human error) out of identifying the proper storage locations for needed inventory.

Streamlined Processes

Warehouse rack labels streamline picking and stocking processes by taking the guesswork (and potential human error) out of identifying the proper storage locations for needed inventory.

Improved Tracking Accuracy

Moveable storage containers like totes, trays, and pallets can be difficult to track, but durable warehouse label solutions offer easy identification of every moveable container, making it easy to identify the right inventory without wasting time with manual data searches.

Get The Right Products to the Right Place

Workers can scan freight to locations in real-time and quickly and accurately identify the precise location of freight when in staging aisles.

Fully Customized Solutions

Camcode’s customized warehouse label and signage solutions are designed to meet the unique requirements of every warehouse application, from specialty storage locations to aisle markers and multi-level rack labels, for easy scannability and immediate location identification.

Common Use Cases for Warehouse Labels

Camcode’s warehouse bar code labels provide the durability and reliability necessary to withstand the typical warehouse environment. Multiple attachment options make it possible to configure temporary or permanent labeling, and Camcode’s variety of warehouse location labels and other marking solutions ensure suitability for a wide range of warehouse applications.

Distribution Centers

Easily identifiable markings on pallets, totes, trays, and returnable containers can drastically improve distribution center efficiency and reduce errors, making it easier to meet customer expectations. Long-range retro-reflective labels, warehouse floor labels, and hanging warehouse signs improve the flow of traffic by aiding operators in navigation and reducing aisle congestion.

Fulfillment Centers

Working with smaller order quantities and individual piece picking, fulfillment centers rely on warehouse rack labels, aisle signs, and pallet bar code labels to ensure order fulfillment accuracy and meet the speedy fulfillment expectations of today’s consumers.

Cold Storage Warehouses

Warehouses storing perishable goods or certain pharmaceutical products often require sub-zero temperatures as cold as -20 degrees Fahrenheit. While most typical warehouse labels aren’t up to this task, Camcode’s cold storage rack labels are specifically designed to withstand extreme cold temperatures while remaining permanently affixed to racks and shelves.

Indoor/Outdoor Warehousing Needs

Warehouse operations don’t exist in an indoor silo, and neither should your warehouse location labels. With outdoor signage solutions that can withstand harsh outdoor weather conditions, modern warehouses can take the guesswork out of finding the proper loading docks for both warehouse staff and logistics partners.

How Do You Label Inventory with Warehouse Labels?

Tagging your warehouse inventory is a core deliverable for effective asset management and enables teams to perform more accurate and automated counts on a set schedule. Developing a comprehensive labeling plan requires a bit of preparation. In order to properly label warehouse inventory, it is helpful to take a holistic approach and look at your entire operation within the factory. It is likely that you have already optimized your basic warehouse layout based on routine activities such as shipping, receiving, scanning, sorting, and picking. Starting with your existing workflows and an updated warehouse layout will help you visualize how your warehouse labels can be deployed.

One of the primary benefits of adding warehouse labels is the improved visibility and end-to-end tracking that they can provide. In some cases, you may even find that you can save some hardware costs by choosing an improved label design that reduces scans or allows you consolidate your checkpoints. When selecting labels for the warehouse you will need to choose between long-range and short-range labeling options.

In any warehouse there are usually a number of different inventory container sizes and types that are stored. Choosing between bulk and individual label options will depend on how your inventory is currently counted and how you plan to use the barcodes. There are many different purposes for labeling inventory such as tracking, counting, and overall warehouse management. You will want to ensure your planning labeling strategy fits well with these current practices. Examples of warehouse labels for inventory include individual item labels, container labels, pallet labels, and floor labels that can all have a useful short-range function depending on your inventory count needs. Long range options include rack labels and hanging signs that can be viewed or scanned at a distance.

How Do You Label a Warehouse Rack?

Having an effective warehouse labeling plan involves looking at your warehouse layout, inventory processes, and primary workflows that are used in the area. It is always best to take a systematic approach to your warehouse rack labeling so that you can extract the most value from your efforts. There are number of suitable warehouse label styles to choose from including polyester, magnetic, and multi-level. They each offer slightly different benefits versus their cost and should be assessed carefully.

One initial step to take is to identify the racks that you have and any sectional or shelving considerations that may impact labeling. It is also helpful to segment the warehouse floor into various sections so that you can be clear about the labeling needs for various types of inventory and work zones. Another consideration is the standard or serpentine picking style that your warehouse may utilize. Selecting a labeling pattern and layout that is optimized for your designated picking procedures will help you reduce any future issues. When labeling a rack it is best to begin from the ground and work your way up, with the first row on the ground floor having the number ‘01’. Labeling can then proceed to additional rows and continue until finished.  This type of numbering scheme is especially useful because it gives you the perfect baseline from which to scale your operation in the future.
