Canary7 in the Warehouse

Article summary

A Real world example of a location

Locations are physically present in your warehouse, these take the form of a label that is clearly visible on a rack or shelf. The Canary7 onboarding team will produce these labels for a warehouse in the configuration stage of onboarding.

Here is an example of a location label on a pallet rack.

location with bar code

The following data can be read from this label:

  1.  Location Barcode
  2. Side
  3. Aisle
  4. Row
  5. Level
  6. Check Digit Barcode
  7. Check Digit

Note: location labels are made to suit individual warehouses, some of these parameters might not be on your labels.

These barcodes are very important for executions as they speed up the process and verify if the execution has been performed in the correct location.

A Real world example of a Container

In Canary7 a container is pretty much any physical product that product will be transported around the warehouse, each container will most likely have a license plate usually in the form of a barcode label which is placed on the object.
