Using the technique of block storage is no big issue for an IT-based warehouse and can offer the big advantage of movement optimisation for load trucks. But this can be tricky if stock places are not only handled automatically but also manually.

Rigour verification that each and every asset is in the intended place is a must. To support this in a way suitable for machines, RFID allows quick identification of assets, block storage places and shelf spaces. And furthermore using hand-held computers with integrated RFID readers, the storekeeper can also benefit from an additional check that his work is done correctly.

Especially in cold stores where reading optical identification can be a problem due to moisture, thaw or layers of ice on packages, RFID is not affected by these disturbances.
