What is a Stillage Cage and Trolley and Their Importance in Logistics, Supply Chain, and Transportation?

Stillage cages and trolleys are essential tools in the logistics and supply chain sectors. A stillage cage is a container, often made of metal, used for storing and transporting goods securely, while trolleys provide an easy means to move these cages around warehouses, production areas, and loading docks. They are vital for the safe, efficient, and organized handling of goods, ensuring products are moved and stored in a way that minimizes damage and loss.

Challenges for Companies to Track and Monitor Their Stillage Cages and Trolleys

Despite their importance, tracking and monitoring stillage cages and trolleys present significant challenges:

  • Human Error: Manual tracking methods are prone to errors. Misplaced or inaccurately logged cages and trolleys can lead to operational delays and inventory mismatches.
  • Lack of Visibility: Companies often lack visibility into the location and status of these assets, which can lead to inefficiencies and increased operational costs.

How Incorporating an IoT Tracking System Can Be of Benefit

Implementing an IoT tracking system offers countless benefits, addressing the challenges head-on:

  • Reduced Risks: GPS tracking minimizes the risk of loss and theft of stillage cages and trolleys, safeguarding the valuable assets they carry.
  • Cost-Efficient: By reducing losses and improving asset utilization, companies can save significant costs associated with misplaced or underutilized equipment.
  • Optimize Operations: Real-time visibility into asset location and usage helps streamline operations, making them more efficient and responsive.
  • Scheduled Maintenance: Tracking usage and wear can inform maintenance schedules, ensuring the longevity and reliability of these assets.
