Checkpoint Unveils Inventory-Control Systems for Retailers, Manufacturers

Checkpoint Systems Inc., a supplier of merchandise availability systems for the retail industry, has developed two new products for distribution centers.

The tools, RFID Box Tunnel and RFID Hanging Garment Tunnel, help retailers to boost revenue and performance by verifying the accuracy of items within each bulk shipment. Errors can be instantly identified and triaged before the shipment leaves the D.C., allowing for the making of necessary corrections and avoidance of added cost and time. Valid shipments generate automatic advance shipping notification and are sent for delivery. Upon receipt at the intended retail location, associates can use an RFID (radio frequency identification) handheld scanner or reader to verify shipments and ensure authenticity, as boxes are unloaded from the delivery vehicle. The tunnels are constructed of fabricated metal, and insulated for sound and radio frequency shielding to eliminate noise and stray RFID tag reads. They mount directly to the manufacturing floor to ensure stability.
