Supply chain transparency has become a huge priority, and industrial thermal printers for supply chains can enable transparent practices like no other single piece of equipment can.
The simple fact of the matter is that commerce and manufacturing have gotten more complex than ever. “In 2015 the U.S. transportation system moved a daily average of about 49.3 million tons of freight valued at more than $52.5 billion,” reveals the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. An average Walmart store contains more than 120,000 SKUs. Amazon and its affiliated vendors sell over 356 million different products between them.
As supply chains stretch further, involve more steps, and handle more unique items than ever before, tracking individual units, cases, or shipments becomes a monumental task. But industrial thermal printers can simplify the process both within your facility and once your items leave the warehouse.
Without thermal printing technology, many manufacturers and companies would fail to live up to the growing expectations of supply chain transparency.
