Master Warehouse Control with a Warehouse Labeling System


In the dynamic landscape of modern supply chains and logistics, efficient warehouse management is crucial for businesses to stay competitive. One of the cornerstones of effective warehouse operations is a robust labeling system. Whether you're managing a small warehouse or a large-scale distribution center, implementing a labeling solution can streamline processes, improve accuracy, and enhance overall productivity.


Find which warehouse labeling system is best for you


In this blog post, we’ll dig into the importance of having a streamlined warehouse labeling process in place and the key features of a successful warehouse labeling system.


The fundamentals of a warehouse labeling system


The global warehousing and storage market size was valued at USD $660.39 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 8.2%, reaching USD $950.68 billion by 2027 (The Business Research Company). The growth of the warehousing and distribution industry is being driven by a number of factors, including the increasing popularity of e-commerce, the growth of omnichannel retail, and the need for more efficient supply chains. As warehousing and distribution centers continue to expand, a reliable warehouse system is a must-have.


A warehouse labeling system is the backbone of efficient warehouse management, encompassing a range of practices, technologies, and strategies that revolve around the creation, application, and management of labels within the warehouse environment. These labels, equipped with essential information such as barcodes or Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tags, serve as the informational glue that holds together various stages of the supply chain. By accurately identifying products, indicating locations, and providing key details, a well-implemented labeling system streamlines processes, reduces errors, and enhances overall inventory management, contributing to the seamless flow of goods from receiving to shipping.


The importance of a warehouse labeling system


There are many benefits of having an optimized labeling system including better inventory management, traceability and transparency, faster order fulfillment, and more efficient processes.


Inventory management


A robust labeling system ensures products are accurately identified and categorized. With clear labels indicating item details, quantities, and locations, inventory can be tracked, organized, and replenished seamlessly. This precision in inventory management helps reduce overstocking, stockouts (running out of inventory of a particular item), and costly errors, ultimately optimizing your supply chain.


Traceability and Transparency


In an era of heightened regulations and consumer demands for transparency, a labeling system plays a pivotal role in achieving traceability. By attaching labels with essential information like batch numbers, expiration dates, and origins, you can easily track products throughout their journey. This not only aids in regulatory compliance but also enhances transparency, allowing for swift response in cases of recalls or quality issues.


Order Fulfillment


Accurate and efficient order fulfillment leads to higher customer satisfaction. A well-implemented labeling system ensures that products are picked, packed, and shipped with precision. Accurate labels specifying item details, quantities, and shipping information reduce the likelihood of shipping errors, leading to happier customers and fewer returns.


Process Efficiency


A labeling system streamlines warehouse processes, making them more efficient and error-resistant. From receiving to storage to picking and shipping, labels provide vital information at each step. Staff can quickly locate products, identify their status, and follow standardized procedures, reducing downtime, errors, and operational costs.


8 key features of a successful warehouse labeling system


  1. Barcode integration: Every successful warehouse labeling system needs an efficient and flexible method for generating barcodes. TEKLYNX label design software offers over 100 barcode symbologies and integrates directly with your WMS, ERP, or other business system for automatic barcode creation.
  2. GS1 compliance: GS1 barcode standards are the global language of business between your suppliers, partners, and customers. CODESOFT is equipped with a GS1 barcode generator and an automatic check digit calculator to ensure your GS1 barcodes are accurate.
  3. RFID capabilities: Warehouses and distribution centers leverage RFID technology for enhanced efficiency and accuracy in their operations. TEKLYNX RFID system capabilities allow businesses to access real-time data as products move throughout the warehouse and across the supply chain.
  4. Automation features: In the warehousing and distribution industry there is a need for speed which is why any process that can be automated, should be. SENTINEL print automation software gives the ability to print labels immediately based on a predefined trigger such as a barcode scan, weight from a scale, or new entry in a database or business system.
  5. Supplier labeling: With a unified supplier labeling system, warehousing and distribution companies experience a much lower risk for labeling errors from their suppliers. With TEKLYNX CENTRAL browser-based printing, suppliers can securely log in to a customized print interface that houses all the pre-approved labels that are associated with that specific supplier.
  6. Serialization: With the millions of products warehousing and distribution companies move every day, serialization is critical to identifying, sorting, and tracing items. Variable counters in CODESOFT allow you to increment variables to create serial numbers and with CODESOFT’s VBScript manager, businesses can create highly customizable serial numbers.
  7. Business system integration: TEKLYNX software integrates directly with any database, your WMS, or any ERP system, including Enterprise IQ, Epicor, Global Shop Solutions, IFS, Infor, IQMS, Microsoft Dynamics, NetSuite, Oracle JD Edwards, Sage, SAP, SYSPRO, and many more.
  8. Addition of colors: Incorporating color onto your inventory labels can make it easier to identify products in the warehouse for faster product retrieval times. CODESOFT includes both CMYK and RGB color selection and supports common image file formats, including .jpg, .png, .gif, .eps, .tif, .bmp, .pdf, and more.
