Automation for verifying and scanning products into custody

Keep your products moving through your facilities efficiently and at high throughputs

There are some parcel shipping or transport applications where new items arriving on your premises only need to be identified by automated barcode scanning when they come into a new physical custody location. In other words, these items are being “scanned into custody.” They may also be scanned for purposes of determining sortation lane destinations from information embedded in parcel item barcode data.

Good examples of this application include air freight customs clearance in which parcels and shipped items are barcode scanned into a controlled and secured environment and pre-cleared items go through the line and non-cleared items are diverted into a separate lane for further inspection. Often such systems are integrated with specialized software from vendors like WiseTech Global.
