Barcoding Operational Advantages (Do It Best Corp.)
Manufacturers and wholesale operations can also benefit from barcoding. The barcoding of shipping containers (SCC or Shipping Container Code) is gaining popularity in the Hardlines industry. Suppliers are finding ways to expedite receiving and other distribution functions through the use of scanning. Shipping containers may be barcoded so that when scanned, the total ship pack quantity is identified. The technology also exists to match a particular shipment from a supplier with the corresponding purchase order using EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) along with a special type of barcode. As a result of the advantages barcoding brings to the Hardlines industry, there exists potential to increase efficiency, customer satisfaction, and profits. By implementing a corporate barcode policy, it is our hope that these benefits will be gained at all levels of the supply chain.
