Let’s talk warehouse inventory management: If you’ve received warehouse samples lately, there’s a good chance there was a totem label option in the selection (If you haven’t gotten your hands on some, request samples!). They’re a crowd pleaser among our warehouse customers for a reason, they make inventory management a breeze.
What are Totem Labels?
Totem labels are commonly used on shelving as part of a warehouse’s inventory management. They display a vertical stack of separate barcodes, with each barcode representing a different level of shelving. This singular label consolidates information in one place so that multiple levels of shelving can be scanned while an operator is at a lower level.
What are the Benefits of Totem Labels?
Totem labels help to streamline warehouse processes by allowing you to locate inventory more efficiently. They eliminate the need for long-range barcode scanning, which can sometimes prove problematic. For quicker identification, each barcode can be paired with a color bar. These match color-coded rack labels (we can hook you up with those too!) located at the corresponding locations. Symbology (such as arrows) can also be added to provide direction.
