Most manufacturers rely on barcodes to manage their inventory and keep track of their products throughout the entire supply chain, from factories and warehouses to their customers' final destination. However, manually scanning every items barcode at various stages of the process is very time-consuming and leaves too much room for incorrectly recorded quantities and types of goods, as well as process sequence errors.
blik uses a track-and-trace technology that can be used for continuous in- and outdoor as well as on-truck tracking, making it possible for manufactures to pinpoint their inventory and products to provide precise information on real-time whereabouts, expected arrival time, or transit interference of their products.
blik utilizes a low-maintenance, high-battery-life wireless sensor that attaches to each individual load carrier. These sensors emit pulses at regular intervals, so a receiver system can determine an items actual location in real time. In contrast to other transmission technologies such as Bluetooth, these pulses do not interfere with existing wireless systems.
