Indoor tracking System in Warehouses
As the pandemic had crawled upon the whole world like a leach, it is leaving behind its marks forever for the entire population of humanity. It wasn’t just the living beings who had to go through the demise of their loved and dear ones, but also the businesses who went through probably one of the worst phases in a business life cycle. Logistics among all was the worst-hit industry, and warehouse indoor tracking solutions will help improve productivity, reduce theft and enhance safety.
Companies saw an increase in internal fraud, the lethargy of employers as they move back to everyday life, increased theft of cargo, compromises on ethical behavior, and many more detrimental issues.
Overall, cargo theft from warehouses increased by 25% amidst Covid all over the world. As India saw the highest number of cargo theft (67% of all Asian Countries) in the year 2020, with warehouse theft dominating the list according to the BSI and TT group cargo theft report, South African logistics dominated the African region is witnessing a growing number of internal fraud and theft from facilities.
As stated by the CEO of WHO concerning the havoc created by Covid, “To win a football match, it is not enough to defend; you also have to attack,” we have also observed the emerging trends in cargo theft and have developed software for Indoor Positioning in warehouses to protect the cargo in warehouses and to enhance the working in warehouses to eliminate the issue of employee lethargy. It would rather keep them engaged in handling the technology more efficiently and productively.
Ripples Indoor Positioning System along with Ripples-FMS will align with the standards and compliance of your warehouses and enhance the facility’s safety. Curious to know how!? We will tell you!
Safety in the logistics industry
Just in Time Inventory & Warehouse Management: –
Using the Digital Twin in logistics model, cargo location could be monitored with up to 2.5m accuracies. Cargo movements like entering or leaving the warehouse would send an alert to the driver that he could access using the web-based IPS dashboard. Thus, the scope of leaving the cargo unattended at the entry/exit will be reduced, hence reducing the chances of theft at the door of the facilities (A growing trend in South Africa amidst pandemic situations).
The dashboard would reflect the real-time data; hence employers will be able to see the real-time location and environmental parameters of the cargo stored in the warehouses. Even the slightest of the movements in the cargo from its original position will send alerts to the assigned employee, which would help react faster to the cargo theft.
With the help of the shop floor, an Indoor Positioning Software, managers would know if an unauthorized or unwanted person is entering the restricted area. This will help in monitoring and controlling internal fraud.
Since only the authorized parties will be able to access the IPS dashboard monitoring the movements of cargo and workforce, a term referred to as grouping, internal frauds will be reduced as tampering of data, divulging of information will not be possible. In case it happens, then tracking the culprit would become easier.
Standards in the logistics industry
Data Representation using Pivot Tables:
The data is represented using the Pivot Table for the warehouse’s workforce movement and environment conditions. Users have the option of unique customization for the representation of the data. It could be represented in various forms like visual and quantitative representation, representation of parameters, and custom sorting.
Compliance in the logistics industry
Tracking and monitoring using Tags:
Ripples-FMS warehouse Indoor tracking software monitors the health of cargo inventory stored in facilities using Bluetooth tags to keep track of their movements.
Different types of tags include –
- Asset tags that are used for tracking workforce and cargo are stored in facilities using the G sensors.
- Mini Robust Tag is used to detect an intruder’s involvement, like opening or closing of doors using the G sensor.
- Multi-sensor is used to monitor the environmental conditions of the warehouse where cargo is stored.
Thus, with Ripples-FMS and its indoor tracking in warehouses, you can enhance your workforce productivity, reduce internal fraud and cargo theft, and enhance safety measures at the workplace without compromising on ethicality. So, uplift your warehouse safety and adopt Indoor Positioning in warehouses today to fight this pandemic together.
