Find out how Wave Reaction can help your industry.
REAL-TIME LOCATING SYSTEMS
Item-level RTLS provides item identity, location, and movement data for defined areas such as a manufacturing cell or tool crib. High-value items are individually tagged, and advanced RFID reader technology coupled with Wave Reaction’s powerful software application creates standard and custom events based on item movements. Items can be located to the nearest 1.5 meters, and events and alerts based on item presence, entering/leaving an area, presence in restricted area, and direction of movement.
DEMAND-BASED ORDERING/LIMITING SERVICE
Wave Reaction’s integrated container management solution can automatically generate orders on behalf of factories and/or suppliers based on historical demand, to ensure your supply chain has what it needs to operate at peak efficiency.
KANBAN ORDERING SERVICE
KANBAN is an approach to process change for organizations which uses visualization with a KANBAN board, allowing a better understanding of work and workflow. It advises limiting work in progress, which reduces waste from multitasking and context switching, exposes operational problems and stimulates collaboration to improve the system. Wave Reaction offers a digitized KANBAN solution, with every step of the process monitored in real time, with updates to the KANBAN board broadcast live.
Wave Reaction offers a full range of trailer management services, as we seek to increase efficiency at every turn, collecting and analyzing data to bring additional value and savings. Our experienced fleet management consultants review your overall operations, calculate optimization options with our proprietary software algorithms, and offer solutions to streamline your operations and increase efficiency.
TRAILER CUBING SERVICES
When freight is at a premium, it’s important to cube your loads to optimize utilization of space. At other times, improving trailer loading times might be a higher priority. It becomes a game between the cost of freight and the cost of loading trailers. Our algorithm changes when market conditions change. Our optimization service helps shippers better match loads to capacity, taking into account both volume and weight. The service is available standalone to interface with another ERP system, or as fully-embedded with SAP’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.
DISTRIBUTION NETWORK DESIGN
Your distribution network may hold the key to competitive advantage and market success. The best distribution network is one that will maximize customer service and flexibility, while minimizing operating costs, capital investment and risk. We understand what it takes to design the right distribution network for your company and will help you determine the scope of your design and strategy, to provide implementable results.
FREIGHT OPTIMIZATION SERVICES
Wave Reaction’s integrated fleet tracking, experienced insights and freight auditing helps you visualize your transportation spend better and take control of your transportation costs today, and tomorrow. From program management and contract optimization to “what if…” modeling with experienced guidance, Wave Reaction can help you create a continuously-improving program.
LOAD TENDERING SERVICES
From submitting the load tender directly through our WAVE reusables portal, to setting up an EDI transfer directly out of your system and into ours, customers can take advantage of several convenient methods for quoting or booking shipments, with email notifications of any changes in status and performance tracking of every shipment.
INVENTORY MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Wave Reaction’s inventory management services appeal to many clients because of our serialized approach. We manage receipt, warehousing, tracking, picking, and delivery through the intelligent use of technology. We track by model and serial number, using unique identifiers for every item we touch. This means that we know where your inventory is at all times, down to its precise location – in the warehouse, or on the road.
MOBILE MANAGEMENT – TABLET AND MICROSCANNER
Wave Reaction’s tablet and microscanner pairing allow for the entirety of warehouse management to be performed quickly, easily, and on-the-move. Wave’s “WMS” app runs on Android-enabled tablets and enables users to perform actions against trailers, including viewing and assigning the work queue, creating detailed cubed loading instructions, managing trailers – both on the property, and requested and en route – and managing and monitoring material handler loading metrics.
Paired with a lightweight wireless microscanner able to rapidly capture barcodes, the hardware-software solution allows a single user to essentially act as a one-person container management company manager, without being tied down to a desk.
Wave Reaction offers a standardized inventory management platform to integrate your warehousing activities into a client’s supply chain and speed up the operating cycle to improve your bottom line. Our Warehouse Management Solution (WMS) leverages our global network and WAVE reusables, to enable material visibility, participant communication, system reporting and execution ability to move material as quickly, efficiently and economically as possible.
LONG-TERM CONTAINER STORAGE CONNECTIONS
Optimized supply chains require a lot fewer reusable containers, and often need storage to keep their investment ready-to-use. Whatever the situation, Wave Reaction can help provide connections to your warehousing services for both the short and long-term, to take the stress out of storage.
END-OF-LIFE RECYCLING SERVICES
Wave Reaction helps customers identify, organize, and recycle excess containers as plastic waste. After identifying the superfluous containers in your processes, we determine how it can be either repurposed or recycled. For warehouses, this can be advertised as a valuable add-on service.
