The new pallet label that tells the content of the pallet (and where it is)
How does supporting RFID affect EDI? The Shipment Notice (ASN, 856 or DESADV) tells what is on every pallet. For example, Pallet One contains 100 of product number A and Pallet Two contains 25 of A and 75 of B. Each pallet must have the precise quantity for every part number known and is required to be sent.
The hidden cost is learning to accurately capture what was placed on each pallet. The method is to talk to your shipping manager and have us look at your ERP interface. Then you can properly estimate the cost.
