Container Management

Intro

Automated Container & Load Carrier Management for Smarter Manufacturing

With millions of containers used in manufacturing environments around the world, inefficient container management wastes time and money. Automated container management uses precise RTLS data on container location and status on the shopfloor to improve overall container transparency and utilization. Automated container management also enables automated bookings and secures flawless process documentation.

How does RTLS container management solve key challenges in manufacturing?

Automating container or load carrier management improves overall inventory management, cycle time, and process documentation. Having real-time transparency about the status and location of containers such as crates, small or large load carriers, pallet boxes or pallets, reduces time spent searching for containers and eliminates production bottlenecks. This allows manufacturers to cut cost and lead time in their assembly and production processes. Automated container management eliminates non-productive search and idle times as well as transportation and inventory cost through demand-driven replenishment.

How does container management work with KINEXON OS und KINEXON RTLS?

KINEXON attaches indoor location tags to containers to generate their precise position data on the shopfloor through Real-time Locating Systems (RTLS). Our Location-based Process Automation (LPA) software KINEXON OS turns your shopfloor into a powerful digital twin that enables you to automate and optimize processes through the interaction of location data, geofences, and event triggers.
