Bar Code Graphics, Inc. has been selected by The Home Depot to certify their vendors’ logistic barcode compliance. Due to the substantial investment in their automated scanning infrastructure and the benefits for both parties achieved from automation, The Home Depot is expecting on 100% barcode compliance from their vendors.
Based on packaging requirements, logistic barcodes for The Home Depot can either be directly printed on corrugate boxes or printed on labels. Vendor are required to provide actual samples for every size carton and/or label which are used for shipments via The Home Depot RDC supply chain. Since many vendors ship from multiple locations, logistic barcode certification is necessary for every vendor "shippoint".
