SATO steps up to support increased demand for transport and logistics services

AUTO-ID and labelling solutions specialist SATO has vowed to support the transport and logistics sector with on-demand technical, hardware and software services, so they can continue to uphold supply chains during the Covid-19 crisis.

As demand for warehousing and transportation surges, logistics firms have been working to continue supplying essential goods. SATO said it is working with businesses to drive down time between deliveries with RFID tagging solutions to automatically sort, direct and track pallets, cartons and intermediate bulk containers without human intervention to ensure social distancing requirements can be maintained.

SATO Europe MD Laurent Lassus said, “Staying at home is not an option for those working in the transport and logistics sector. To keep the world on its feet, businesses operating in the air, rail, sea and land are having to retool their layouts, adapt to changing business processes and adhere to stringent health and safety procedures, while under intense demand from supply chains. When speed is of the essence, having access to easy-clean hardware and software solutions that save time, improve accuracy and boost efficiency is crucial.

“Globally, we rely on the transport and logistics industry more than we realise. It’s the connecting bridge to the food, hygiene, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and distribution industries, transporting goods for our survival and for our trade agreements. Without these companies, the import and export of goods we need for our supermarkets, hospitals, energy suppliers and public transport systems would not be adequate.”
