David Greenfield from Burtons Biscuits will be presenting Express Stock Despatch

What is it? Operator led despatch of finished goods using a handheld RF gun running a simple interface to SAP. Operator scans SSCC shipping label of each pallet manufactured, then scans a barcode next to the appropriate loading bay. When trailer is full a separate operation on the gun then despatches the load. The gun captures the necessary details of the load, then to despatch it fires the information to SAP which performs a background, STO create, delivery, pick & PGI.

The Benefits are:

  1. Automation and overhead reduction
  2. Accuracy of what is on the load = what is in SAP, leading to no discrepancies on inbound tipping at our finished goods warehouse.
