Increase distribution capacity, cut labor/rework costs with camera-based barcode/2D code readers

January 09, 2013

More distribution channels coupled with shorter delivery times and growing product portfolios add pressure to all parts of the supply chain. In response, distribution operations need better visibility from the initial order through production and shipping to efficiently respond to changing needs.

As this paper will show, thanks to advances in sensors and microprocessors, camera-based autoID systems have achieved cost parity with older, laser-based 1D barcode readers while offering the higher speeds, improved accuracy, and greater flexibility that modern distribution centers need to succeed.

Learn how camera-based autoID systems are more accurate than laser barcode scanners for both manual and automated sorting and picking operations, while offering greater capability and better return on investment than laser scanners.
