While initially underwhelming the logistics world in the 90’s, RFID has been growing exponentially in the last five to seven years.

The Fishy Side of RFID Technology

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Apr 3, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Go Fish? Not so fast!

In 2003, investigators in Australia solved an illegal poaching operation using RFID chips. The fish (which were already caught and on shore) had RFID chips inserted into them, and when the unsuspecting fish-burglars took the bait and made off with the “catch,” they soon found themselves up to their gills in legal trouble.

While this early innovation was a creative way to use RFID on a fish, since that time others have been looking at more positive ways that have a more productive objective, though with the fish remaining as in demand as ever.

Wireless Goes Where the Hardhat Doesn’t

Construction Site Safety

Construction jobs are inherently dangerous. The mixture of heavy machinery, deep holes, extreme heights, concrete, steel beams, chemicals, etc. is always going to create the potential for all types of injuries and even fatalities. In 2014 in the US alone, there were nearly 5,000 fatal occupational injuries, of which construction led with 17% of the total despite employing only 6% of the workforce in the evaluation. The most common worksite hazards for construction workers were workplace falls, electrocution, being struck by objects or being caught between two objects.

Defining “Modernization”

Modernization is, to pardon the pun, a somewhat old phrase. Derived from French in about 1770, there really is nothing new about it! In your professional experience, you might be thinking you’ve been modernizing for your entire career. But in the context of modern logistics and DC processes, it refers to a specific “trend,” if you will, of not just updating specific systems with new equipment and software, but a more significant step of evolving from a set of legacy technologies to an entirely new type of system.

Manage Your DC Facility Improvements - One Process at a Time

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Feb 6, 2018 7:00:00 AM

Facility-wide changes aren’t Easy and not always optimal.   
When your DC needs an upgrade, where do you start?

Something we see with every facility we visit is the desire by managers to continually look for new ways to improve on their KPIs and find innovative ways to do that. While every manager would love to have the resources to rebuild their warehouse facility, its processes, and layout from the ground up, this is possible only in the rare case that the business is growing so fast it can afford to build out a separate new facility to replace the older one when it is ready (or moving to an entirely new location).
