Inbound Sorting

Manage inbound freight seamlessly with image-based barcode readers


The rapid pace of ecommerce fulfillment, in which bulk shipments must be quickly sorted into smaller orders of just a few items, places new demands on businesses. Suppliers, shipments, and individual items must be managed seamlessly for successful inbound sorting of goods.

Unlike laser-based barcode scanners, image-based barcode readers have the speed and accuracy to decode information and ensure that packages are properly sorted and stored. High read rates at inbound sorting locations reduce labor costs and maximize productivity.
