January 12, 2023 – BSN and Turck US today announce a new collaboration agreement that will offer real-time item-level visibility to the retail supply chain.
As a key supplier of RFID labels to retail brands and stores, BSN will tap into the innovative RFID Gate Systems offered by Turck. Mounted over a warehouse dock door or other opening, items going through the gate are captured and recorded simultaneously into a customer’s ERP system or a Cloud server.
RFID labels, currently used for item visibility within the store, can be used to provide reports throughout the supply chain It would simply require the installation of a turnkey RFID infrastructure in the warehouse and distribution centers.
“We knew that our RFID labels would provide the item data that could help reduce the number of safety stocks and that this connected RFID data has the potential to save millions of dollars,” said Philip Calderbank, RFID Consultant at BSN. “However, as BSN is primarily a label company, we needed to find a global partner, capable to supply the RFID readers and software into logistics operations. This agreement now enables BSN and Turck to supply a total ‘real-time’ item visibility solution from a vendor to store shelf. Being able to take advantage of the existing RFID labels throughout the supply chain, provides for a much greater ROI.”
“Turck looks forward to working with BSN and offering a more complete solution for item-level tracking and visibility in retail,” commented Don Eichman, Turck Systems Group Manager. “It is exciting to see the talented teams work together and have a clear understanding of how they can use both RFID solutions to deliver more value to their customers,” he concluded.
BSN and Turck will be highlighting their new supply chain solutions at the National Retail Federation ‘Big Show,’ which will be at the Jacob Kravits Center in New York from January 15-17.
