New RFID plastic pallet by Smartflow with SLR Technology Solutions on show at CeBit

Liverpool’s S.L.R. Technology solutions will launch the innovative new Smartflow pallet track and trace system at CeBit Hanover, the world’s largest trade fair for digital solutions which takes place from the 4th-9th March. The system already installed at German packaging manufacturer Heuchemer Verpackung GmbH & Co will be demonstrated. It will follow the journey of the reusable plastic RFID Smartflow pallet from manufacturer to distribution depot, to carriage of goods and back to distribution depot. The demonstration shows screen views of how various organisation and logistics chain functions, can see on screen and control, track and trace pallet and goods, invoicing, revenue generation and more.

Christoph Heuchemer MD of Heuchemer Verpackungen (Germany) said, “We are the first company in our industry to use this innovative and very economical combination of a novel multiway plastic-pallet and a stable tracking and tracing solution. We chose the Smartflow S.L.R. system because the relevant information on tracking and tracing links directly with our ERP system. We have a well established logistics system and the pre-installed. S.L.R. Tracking and Tracing Software fits almost seamlessly into our established systems. Interfaces between the delivery note and palette are visible which allows the customer to monitor his supply chain performance online with one glance. It also reduces the cash flow on palettes as you only pay for what you have in stock or are currently using.”

Stephan Willigens MD of S.L.R. Technology solutions said, “The Smartflow pallet is bundled with S.L.R.’S passive RFID track and trace software meaning that it is always traceable by both owner and user. It is light weight at Below 10kg reducing transport costs, it offers the robustness of wood and carries up to 1,200 kg in a high rack environment, and it can be used many times over so it is less demanding on the environment and more economical than wooden pallets.

Janet Butler from Liverpool Ventures a Merseyside company supporting innovation said, “ S.L.R. Is fast growing company because it meets key corporate demands for driving down production and transport costs and increasing competitiveness through use of innovation.”
