Packaging innovations enhance wire and cable shipping, stock keeping.

To make reels of copper electrical building wire and cable easier to handle and safer to ship--while improving inventory and stock keeping--they come labeled with large tape indicating the wire size for easier viewing from a distance. Wire size is also printed directly on the wire in a large format to improve identification. Items placed on a pallet of mixed goods are organized with same products grouped together. Marked with an itemized label, which includes a piece count for that pallet, verifying inventory with shipping manifests is more efficient. Bar code scanners ensure a high rate of accuracy in the picking process. Cerro Wire, 256-773-2522, www.cerrowire.com.
