KnarrTek provides real-time materials tracking solutions based on the use of License-Plate-Number (LPN) container tracking methods. These LPN methods are used by large distribution organizations, such as Amazon, UPS and FedEx, and are now the world-wide GS1 standard for tracking containers of materials in the global supply chain.
KnarrTek uses the BellHawk software to extend these LPN methods to work inside manufacturing plants and their associated warehouses. KnarrTek then uses the MilramX software to connect to external supply chains, which use LPN tracking methods. This software is affordable for even small to mid-sized industrial organizations when used through the Cloud-based BellHawk Online service, managed by KnarrTek.
The BellHawk Online Service also enables small to mid-sized industrial distributors to use the same methods as large organizations such as Amazon, at a very affordable cost. This is especially true for distributors that need to do kitting, light assembly, repackaging, and relabeling of materials.
LPN methods enable the tracking of the location, quantity, lot number and expiration date of the contents of each container of material as well as the serial number of each individually tracked part. They also enable tracking pallets or other shipping containers with many different products in/on each shipping container nested inside multiple layers of boxes.
In factories, KnarrTek uses LPN methods to track the receipt of raw materials, their transformation into work-in-process and intermediate materials, as well as finished products and their picking, packing and shipping to customers. This tracking is performed in real-time using technologies such as barcode scanning and mobile computing, which replace the use of paper forms and manual keyboard data entry.
