The effectiveness of customized barcode labels for managing warehouse inventory

Customized labeling for warehouses provides an excellent opportunity for manufactures looking to efficiently organize their stocks and track their inventories. These labels must be durable and easily identified to maintain their effectiveness, which is why partnering with a quality labeling supplier is vitally important.

The right labeling vendor should offer barcode labels that are made with rugged materials such as polyester or polyimide, along with a variety of customizable die and tooling options to meet specific application needs. For example, warehouses looking to gain more a more seamless identification and management of their inventories should turn to quality customized labeling applications.

"With custom bar code labels designed for use with returnable containers, totes, and trays, as well as pallets, you can ship items from your facility and quickly move returned containers to the proper area," Nicole Pontius at Camcode Durable Bar Code Solutions, a labeling provider, explained on its website. "Because warehouses have a high flow of products moving in and out of the facility at any given time, returnable container bar code labels drastically reduce the time it takes to reorganize and reallocate these items on return."

"These labels must be durable and easily identified in order to maintain their effectiveness."

Not only will customized labels cut inventory management times, they will also help companies gain extended visibility across their entire warehouse. Investing in quality barcode labels at the end of your company's fiscal year also makes the end-of-year inventory procedures and verification processes more efficient and lessen risk for mistakes to occur as a result of improper or ineffective labeling.

"When custom labels are used, your warehouse will have fewer errors with the wrong items, or quantities of items, pulled for shipment," Chicago Tag Label, a provider of high-quality custom labels and custom tags, wrote on its website. "Including date codes can be beneficial if you stock products that have expiration dates. You can ensure that the oldest inventory is moved before newer inventory is pulled. Your database will contain up-to-date information on quantities and you can create alerts for materials that require reordering."
