Tel-Aviv, Israel, March 30, 2009
ImageID, a provider of patented, imaging-based SCT solutions, today announced that SeaChill has implemented a third Visidot application, so as to comply with new Tesco retail chain requirements.
Tesco has recently required that all its suppliers provide ASNs (advance shipping notifications) accurately reporting the content of every truck delivering goods to the retail chain. With hundreds of pallets shipped each day, speed and accuracy are of the utmost importance to Seachill. Following two successful Visidot implementations, SeaChill immediately approached ImageID to addresses this new requirement.
Upon completion of shipping verification, Visidot creates a SSCC (Serial Shipping Container Code) pallet label complying with GS1 standard. Tagged pallets are then fork-lifted past a dock-door Visidot gate on their way to the delivery trucks. Truck numbers are associated with all relevant pallets, and ImageID’s Visidot Director produces the ASN document, as required by Tesco.
“Visidot has demonstrated its strong traceability capabilities yet again,” states Steve Wallace, IT Manager at SeaChill . “Having already helped us reduce order lead times, Visidot now also enables us to comply with Tesco’s stringent shipping notification requirements – while increasing efficiency and assuring 100% shipping accuracy.”
"We are very proud that SeaChill returns to us with new traceability challenges. It demonstrates their confidence in the superiority of our technology and ability to deliver" said Dror Irani, ImageID’s CEO.
