“Connecting the world of food” is the slogan of one of Europe’s leading providers of food logistics. The connections have to be right. Because the company has more than 100 facilities with over 11,000 employees, and ships at least 100,000 consignments every day. Excellent logistics and distribution systems are required here, and these rely heavily on the trouble-free use of thousands of WLAN-supported hand scanners to record the barcodes of the items to be shipped. The WLAN infrastructure is therefore the backbone of the entire logistics apparatus.
