Tortilla manufacturer, Mission Foods, deployed Intermec RFID technology to improve warehouse operations and account for its reusable plastic containers.
The company used Intermec IF61 RFID readers, along with Intermec antennas, labels and PM4i printers to enhance tracking of over 20,000 reusable containers across three of its plants.
Packaged products are loaded onto RFID-labeled containers and then loaded onto pallets, at which point an RFID label is encoded by the Intermec PM4i printer and applied to the pallet.
Intermec IF61 readers in outbound portals record the pallets and associated containers as forklifts load the route trucks bound for distribution centers.
When trucks return, they are processed through an inbound portal to account for all reusable plastic containers.
