How do barcodes help 3PL?

If your business is growing and you are either considering or currently using 3PL (Third Party Logistics) services, barcodes are a useful tool to help your warehouse expand its operations and facilitate this growth.

 When your physical products don’t have a barcode, you are leaving yourself open for guesswork and errors. However, when they have a barcode, they can be scanned via computer software to identify and collect the information directly from each, no matter if they are being picked by someone unfamiliar with your products, or even an automated machine.

The information scanned is transmitted directly to your Warehouse Management System (WMS) where it is logged and tracked. So, even if your warehouse is offsite and your products are getting picked, packed and shipped by a third-party team, you have accurate and up-to-date information about inventory, pricing, and other important data.

Barcodes can make your business more efficient and will allow you to take the most advantage of growth using 3PL services.
