RaPTr – Drive-Thru Barcode Scanning

RaPTr pallet scanning system

Automate warehouse scanning with a drive-thru barcode scanning system for touchless, rapid pallet tracking and image capture.

Artemis Vision's RaPTr (Rapid Pallet Tracker) barcode scanning system integrates with your shipping operations to scan pallet ID labels automatically, and boosts both speed and accuracy.

Load Trucks Faster

RaPTr enables autonomously scanning barcodes in motion. Forklift drivers don't need to dismount to scan, and barcodes are decoded hands-free in miliseconds.

Reduce Errors

Immediate visual feedback at dock doors signals whether product is going on the right truck. Real-time record keeping enables track-and-trace for pallets to reduce lost product, increase shipping efficiency, improve OTIF compliance, and create tighter inventory control.

Keep It Simple

Small system footprint and quick installation. Simple to use with clear operator feedback. Simple, standard cables. Integrates with any major WMS system.

How It Works

RaPTr works as an automated pallet scanning and tracking system for your warehouse. A compact unit with camera(s), server, and included software scan barcode labels passing through warehouse dock doors or other checkpoints. Touchless scanning reads barcodes in motion, making dismounting from or even stopping forklifts unnecessary. In its most optimal configuration, RaPTr scans SSCC labels at the dock door. The technology is a more efficient, less expensive alternative to RFID pallet tracking systems.

All scans are timestamped with image capture and instantaneously recorded in the system for scanning visibility and verification. The system also supports image capture for entire pallet documentation.

The small system footprint and its simplicity allow for quick installation. RaPTr integrates readily with existing software at no additional cost. A web-based dashboard option is included for instant, visual record-keeping. 

A Challenge Resolved

Manual warehouse barcode scanning introduces human error and profit loss because it is slow, labor-intensive, and prone to missed scans and mis-routed pallets. Our barcode scanning system was designed for outbound warehouse scanning and shipment tracking for customers delivering pallets at high volume, but can be used in any situation for large area barcode scanning.

In the case of a client who uses returnable crates it has proved indispensable for recovering and billing all while saving personnel time. And for all our customers, warehouse operations have become more efficient. Forklift drivers do not have to manually scan or even stop, and can receive clear and immediate feedback that product and pallets are dispatched to the correct truck. Shipments can leave warehouses faster, with the accuracy and data needed to avoid OTIF compliance fees.

  • If shipping 5-10 trucks per day, our system gives one year payback against the cost of RFID tags alone.
  • Save 25 minutes of loading time per truck.
  • Retrieve timestamped scanning data with photographic proof.
  • This is the fastest large area scanner on the market (scan area of 1m x 1m or larger).
