Easy Time-Saving RFID Solutions
RFID offers a time-efficient solution for tracking assets and inventory in the warehouse. The system also provides parking and access control which manages visitors and staff at the warehouse. Tracking items and taking inventory is easily conducted by a staff member walking through the warehouse holding a handheld PC such as a tablet or a PDA that is pre-installed with a RFID reader to automatically record all tagged items.

The Commercial Warehouse Industry
A commercial warehouse is defined as an industrial space for storing items such as retail and wholesale supplies of various goods ranging from gardening tools, machinery, building materials, trolleys, carts and other appliances. The commercial warehouse industry is a diverse business utilized for the storage and distribution of various goods and items for both online and offline retail stores, suppliers and consumers.
In the United States, Texas is one of the main states known for major industrial businesses, commercial warehouses and logistics operations. In Texas, many different commercial warehouses belong to various independent retailers and independent businesses. The majority of their industrial districts and commercial warehouses are located in Austin, which is near the Austin Bergstrom International Airport, making both domestic and international logistics distribution easily accessible both to and from the warehouses and the airport.
Commercial warehouses are suitable for wholesale suppliers who need rental space to use as storage for an inventory of their goods to ship to retailers, businesses and consumers. The logistics warehouse industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, leading to an increasing need for the expansion of commercial warehouses. Therefore, the commercial and logistics warehouse industries depend on one another to operate as part of the supply chain. Due to the evolvement of modern technology and new innovative ways of shopping, e-commerce retailers and independent online stores must now order from their suppliers and then find rental space from warehouses to expand and/or store their inventory stocks. This in turn boosts the economy as the supply chain (consumers, logistics, retailers and businesses, manufacturers and suppliers) keeps growing. The most important aspects of starting a successful commercial warehouse business are the location and accessibility to the warehouse, as these ensure that the transportation and logistics of goods arriving to and leaving the warehouse are done conveniently and time efficiently.
For the past few years, there has been an increasing demand for the expansion of commercial warehouses as online businesses are becoming more innovative in how they operate and with the evolution of modern technology and resources to help connect with and build their customer base. The majority of online businesses are now seeking to operate their own warehouses for inventory storage instead of depending on their overseas suppliers to ship the items directly. Relying on overseas suppliers takes more time and is not an effective way to utilize one’s business if they have the opportunity to take stock of their own inventory. Therefore, the need for more commercial warehouses is boosting the local economy and driving the success of the commercial warehouse industry. It also benefits other closely linked industries that depend on the commercial warehouse industry to help their own businesses thrive.
The sizes of commercial warehouses vary and can be customized to fit the needs of individual warehouses and their functions. Warehouses often contain various goods that belong to several different retailers or suppliers, which may range from local to national. Therefore, tracking these goods is crucial to the overall industry so that a warehouse can operate properly by tracking its inventory and being able to ensure its partners that their goods are stored appropriately.
Due to the typical wide storage space and aisles of warehouses, many items and goods that are stored in them are waiting to be processed and distributed, and some items might even get misplaced or damaged due to physical handling by staff or during loading. In order to avoid these kinds of issues, it is important that warehouse businesses invest in a high quality and effective tracking system to manage and track these items without requiring staff to manually handle them individually.
The Commercial and Institutional School Construction Industry
Commercial and institutional buildings are the most common types of construction seen and used by the public. The terms “commercial” and “institutional” refer to organizations or establishments that are formed for religious, social, educational, or other similar purposes. This form of construction serves to create buildings for public use, such as churches, banks or schools. The construction of schools may be considered as one of the most important types of public institutions since they are of particular interest to governments, communities, and corporations, as education has become a crucial element for success. Schools provide early childhood, primary, secondary, and higher education opportunities, which in turn provide the necessary skills required to join the workforce.
Due to the importance of education, several hundred thousand public and private school buildings have been constructed all across North America, with millions of students in attendance every year. In the US, large cities tend to have the highest amount of schools; these cities include Los Angeles, CA, Chicago, IL, and New York City, NY, among several others. The school construction market continues to climb as cities and suburban areas continue to grow in geographical and population size and must make education more accessible to the public.
School construction varies for each building, as it must meet the community’s needs for which it is created. For example, some residential areas are spread out and have smaller population sizes, while some areas are more densely populated and have lower amounts of space available for construction. This also applies to the types of materials needed, based on certain factors like the environment, city standards, or budget restrictions.
Construction typically requires builders to form lists of materials, which vary in quality, price and quantity. Commercial and institutional construction requires large order capabilities, which now involve GPS delivery and high-tech operating systems to process large orders and move materials. To begin the process of building commercial or institutional schools, school boards, school districts, and city planners must prepare contracts that discuss matters such as site security, environmental and noise control, workers’ hours, necessary materials, and deliveries. Once the materials have been decided on, the party responsible for overseeing the construction process may contact special construction supply facilities, that typically make on-site deliveries. Construction also involves a significant amount of both natural and synthetic materials, such as wood, steel, clay, bricks, rocks, plastics, glass, and cement, which may or may not be used depending on their cost, quality, or effectiveness in the type of building being made. Construction supply facilities keep their materials in large enclosed areas like warehouses, in which workers must keep track of inventory and use large, strong moving equipment for the large amounts of heavy, raw materials being ordered. The types of equipment involved in this process often include utility carts, forklifts, and delivery trucks, which are used to lift and move these heavy materials.
To work in this field, employees typically are not required to have any formal education and instead, go through on-the-job training. However, it may be beneficial to attend a trade school or begin an apprenticeship first. Construction work is very physically taxing, dangerous, and difficult. Given the complex nature of commercial and institutional construction, workers often need special certifications or licenses to perform certain tasks, such as rigging, scaffolding, or welding.
Commercial and institutional construction is very complex and includes a very broad range of assets that must be tracked during the ordering process. Each asset in this industry is crucial to the construction of these buildings, providing them with a good foundation, and meeting the standards for the specific type of building and environmental regulations. There are several different facilities or plots of land that house different kinds of raw materials, such as glass, metals, chemicals, woods, etc., often depending on the storage conditions these materials may require.
