GAO RFID System Solutions: Freight Trucking Organizations
We believe that each and every organization requires effective and optimal solutions to aid in their daily functions. Freight trucking organizations are responsible for simultaneously shipping, packing, receiving and inventory, package tracking, fleet management, route accounting, device management, and field service. All of these require the utmost attention and are equally important to the success of the organization. By employing our RFID System, many of laborious tasks traditionally assigned to team members can now be automated with RFID technology, drastically reducing the time required to complete these tasks, giving your staff more time to spend on other important areas of the business.
Management of Equipment and Inventory
With a myriad of equipment including packaging supplies, invoices, receipts, containers and cartons, fleets and more, trucking companies face a great challenge when trying to organize data and deal with incoming and outgoing cargo. GAO RFID’s Asset Tracking System can help optimize the management of equipment by providing your organization with RFID Tags and installing RFID UHF Readers at specific areas in your facility that can automatically capture data concerning containers, trucks, loading equipment as they move within your facility, and on departure.
Alongside management of equipment, inventory checks are required daily to ensure that packaging supplies as well as other office supplies are available at all times. In a fast paced environment such as that of a freight trucking corporation, where multiple shipments will be processed daily, to accommodate for in-fleet inventory checks is vital to automate the process to save time. GAO RFID’s System provides RFID Tags that help you identify boxes, cartons, and pallets as they arrive and ship out, ensuring tracking ability at all times. Tamper-proof RFID Tags are also available for sensitive cargo to ensure unwanted tinkering with the cargo is monitored. If an attempt to open the cargo is made, the Tamper-proof RFID Tag will emit an alert that managers will receive on their email or mobile device, allowing them to have real-time response to the situation.
Access Control to Restricted Locations
High-value items will need to be protected from and dispatched by only those qualified and allowed to do so. In order to make the process as smooth as possible from the warehouse or distribution facility to the fleet and then to the receiver, it is necessary that security measures are in place to ensure that the shipment arrives in one piece. Our GAO RFID solutions not only help track shipments, but can also provide tracking and access to personnel working in the facility. Each employee’s unique information is embedded into an RFID Badge. This badge can be used for many functions including clocking in/out and accessing locked doors within the premises. Certain zones in your facility can be programmed to only grant access to the employees of your choosing. Every movement made is logged into the database so that security and management have the power to review each employee’s actions. In cases of emergency, the RFID Badge can be located using our Personnel Tracking System software, allowing for real-time identification of an employee’s location to enable immediate emergency response.
Time Management for Payroll Systems
Further to the use of the RFID Badges for logging clock in/out times of employees, this data can be easily integrated with your existing payroll system. The result is the drastically reduced time in preparing payroll and calculating hours worked, as the data collected from the RFID Badges are accurate up to the second and automatically import into your payroll software for immediate payroll calculations.
