Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What are hot loaded rolls?
"Hot loaded" refers to rolls which are not stored, but shipped immediately after production.

At what point in the storage and shipping process are labels applied?
Labels are applied to rolls as they are received in a warehouse so that they can be tracked during storage and shipping.

What does FIFO stand for and how does it apply to warehousing?
FIFO stands for First In First Out and refers to a common method for storing and retrieving rolls in the order that they were produced.

What should be listed on a bill of lading?
The bill of lading applies to a truck or railcar and should include the date and location of loading, the rolls loaded, the carrier name and the destination of the load.

What type of label is commonly used to automate tracking of rolls?
Tracking labels applied to rolls usually include a printed barcode with a universal product code number that can be read by a laser scanner and perhaps an RFID tag.

Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Rolls of paper or board are typically labeled and banded as part of the finishing process prior to being received and tracked by shipping personnel. Labels are extremely important to properly identify, locate, and track rolls throughout the warehouse. Some facilities use automatic labelers which print and affix labels to rolls with an arm maneuvered by a motor. Bar code scanners on the arm help confirm that the roll label is applied correctly. The labeler should affix labels in a predictable location on the roll with a uniform orientation. If a labeler malfunctions, labels may be applied manually.
