Advantages of Container-Based Materials Tracking Systems


One of KnarrTek's specialties is the development of real-time container-based materials tracking systems.  These systems track materials in containers, by placing a tracking barcode and/or RFID tag on each  container of materials, individual item, or asset that needs to be tracked.

This is the same method used by organizations such as FedEx, UPS and Amazon but extended to tracking materials within multiple warehouses, stock rooms, manufacturing facilities, as well as outdoors in yards and at building sites.
