The Datalinx Tote Tracking module removes the overhead of tote containers not being returned, allows the tracking of them and records their return. This provides the business with the knowledge to either charge or request return as appropriate. On their receipt, the status of the tote can be assessed before being made available for re-use.
If products are shipped in totes that are not returned, the business has an ever increasing overhead that can significantly add to its costs. traditionally, totes have been tracked by adding a product to the sales order, however this does not give a true view of the totes' location and requires 'customer returns' to be used to book it back into the business.
