Indoor tracking: Inventory management of pallets in logistics warehouses

As a French manufacturer of electrical equipment for catering professionals (coffe places, hotels, restaurants), Santos manages of a stock of over 2 500 references of spare parts.

For this SME, which has been growing for over 65 years, inventory management is a real challenge. As part of the digitalization of its processes, Santos chose ELA Innovation and Orange Business to deploy an IoT solution to locate over 600 pallets in its logistics warehouse.
We’re very satisfied with the smart tracking solution. It works perfectly and our assemblers use it every day. It has enabled us to enter Industry 4.0 head-on.

✓ To simplify and speed up part search
✓ To guarantee compliance with business rules: First in First Out logistics
✓ To avoid over-ordering to make up for a lack of parts
From a technical point of view, the indoor geolocation solution is based on a mesh network of fixed(1) and mobile(2) becons. The former, also known as anchors, are installed at regular intervals in the logistics warehouse, while the latter are positioned directly on the pallets to be located. The mobile Blue PUCK ID+ Mesh transmits signals to the various anchors, which in turn pick up all dialogues and transmit the information to the gateway.

The data is then processed and analyzed by Orange IoT Smart Tracking platform. Operators will use smartphones positioned at the entrance to each aisle to geolocate the pallet they need to within a few meters. They will also be able to trigger the LED light of the beacon associated with the pallet to via the mobile application, enabling them to refine their search, particularly whennthe pallet is stored high up.
✓ Time saving
✓ Compliance with the FIFO standard: improved quality and traceability
✓ Reduced cost of buying back lost parts
✓ Saves storage space
