When was the last time you used a paper ticket while boarding an airplane?

It's no secret that the airline industry uses QR codes to check passengers in at the airport.

Most of us can't imagine using paper tickets to fly. However, the vast majority of trucking and logistics companies still use paper tickets to manage their deliveries.

Managing orders and shipments as a freight company can be quite tedious, especially if your company still deals with paper documents such as bills of lading, rate confirmations, etc.

Time is an important factor in logistics. The more time you spend on tasks that could be automated, the more you lose. You don’t just lose money; you also lose valuable clients, and it eventually affects your company’s reputation.

Customer satisfaction is a priority for every company, and that's especially true of logistics companies. Many freight companies are adopting the use of technology to improve customer satisfaction and increase loyalty.

Technological practices adopted over time include the use of QR codes.

QR codes are those small, black, squarish icons you see on product packages. A QR code is an image where you can embed information for computers to read and decode. You may be wondering what a QR code has to do with freight.

QR Codes for Freight Documents

Most logistics companies get caught up in an endless world of paperwork. QR codes could take care of that for you.

For instance, let's say you're an inventory manager who needs to be at a business meeting, but you also need to deal with checking products in and out

QR codes could free up your employees and drivers to handle the loading and unloading process while you manage other important tasks.

QR Codes for Tracking Shipments

Once the product is shipped, you might be understandably anxious about your shipments' safe and timely delivery. You're not alone. Many business owners struggle with this, and that’s where QR codes are a useful tool.

You can track the location of your shipments by placing QR codes on each package which are scanned at every point. The scanner operator doesn't need to scan every single product, just the package. That saves time.

QR codes can also be useful for your clients when they want to track the exact location of their deliveries.

QR Codes for Scanning Product Information


Finally, QR codes can store product information. They also help your clients cross-check their shipments. No need to worry about losing your packaging slip or any other paperwork regarding your shipment. Scanning QR code labels keeps the information hidden from public view and keeps it secure.

QR Codes for Warehouse and Storage


You can receive/ship products into your warehouse and assign storage. 

There are countless ways to use QR Codes in your warehouse and storage. You can assign storage, track the duration of storage, do cycle count, assign services etc.
