SBA Furniture plans to have all warehouses fully RFID equipped by the end of 2017

SBA Furniture Group handles high volumes of furniture that are shipped via pallets to over 40 countries. In order to eliminate loading errors, SBA Furniture deployed an RFID-based tracking solution in its warehouses, working together with Lithuanian system integrator Vygeja and Dutch international distributor of RFID products Cisper. Ramunas Marozas from SBA Furniture Group and Darius Jodzevičius from Vygeja spoke with “RFID & Wireless IoT Global” about how RFID helped the company to come close to zero loading errors. Due to this success, all six warehouses will be fully RFID equipped by the end of 2017 – opening up possible future prospects for the RFID solution.

Thermal paper labels offer numerous printing options

“Automated registration systems minimise and eliminate loading errors in warehouses significantly. Hence, SBA Furniture chose RFID for a pallet tracking solution. Before entering the warehouse, all pallets are tagged with passive UHF RFID paper labels to track and trace the handled furniture within the warehouse. SBA Furniture uses Tageos EOS-500 paper labels provided by distributor of RFID products Cisper. The green paper labels are wide band Gen2 UHF RFID labels, consisting of a chip, paper, and the antenna,” Ramunas Marozas, Manager of Production Development and Innovation, SBA Furniture Group, states.

Darius Jodzevičius, Project Manager, Vygeja, adds: “SBA switched to the Tageos label early in the implementation process as the label offers adequate performance at a reasonable price, and most importantly, offers a thermal paper surface onto which any kind of information – from identification number to location to destination – can be printed.”

Ramunas MarozasRamunas Marozas “SBA Furniture uses Tageos EOS-500 paper labels for its pallet tracking solution. The identification number, the pallet code, and the location and destination information stored on the label provide the basis for optimised indoor loading processes. Since the implementation of RFID, incorrect picking has decreased significantly. Loading errors came close to zero.”

One label per pallet suffices for adequate reading

In order to identify all the pieces of furniture on a pallet, one RFID label is applied per pallet. For optimal reading, the label is positioned on the packaging of the pallet. The RFID tag contains an identification number and is connected to the pallet code prior to entering the warehouse. Information regarding its assigned location in the warehouse and its designated cargo station is added as well. “All the information is brought together in our ...
