Before the project
Due to the transition to the new warehouse management system, the whole warehouse had to be re-marked with barcodes. For a high level of flexibility and large scale of experiences in this field, Solvent turned KODYS.
- Complex marking of the warehouse – floor, shelves, levels, stands etc.

Due to high-quality durable marking and hardware equipment, warehouse productivity has increased by 16%. A total of 1,345-floor labels and 60,000 shelf labels were delivered to us. The project lasted 4 months. Warehouse employees are able to train within a week to get the required efficiency. We can only recommend cooperation with KODYS.
KODYS used highly resistant labels for the overall marking of storage locations. The floor was marked with an extremely durable robust labels made of 250-micron polycarbonate material. The floor labels were graphically designed to speed up the work of warehouse operators.
KODYS has also designed a unique solution for marking racks and bridges by using multi-level pre-printed labels. There are several barcodes on the label, each single barcode identifies one shelf floor. Each shelf floor has a colour that equals the colour of the label.
Warehouse Zones and dispatch gates are marked by PVC boards with yellow polypropylene labels for better visibility. There was also delivered durable mobile terminals Zebra, scanners and printers for warehouse operators and installed wireless network as a part of the project.
