Zebra Technologies Corporation has announced its 3600 Ultra-Rugged series of scanners. They are purpose-built to exceed industry standards for durability, scan performance and manageability in demanding industrial environments such as warehouses, distribution centres, manufacturing shop floors and do-it-yourself (DIY) retail stores.
We Pack Logistics , a division of 129-year-old Harrison, Walker & Harper, is a growing third party logistics, packaging and supply chain management firm that relies on the 3600 Ultra-Rugged series to help boost workforce efficiencies and maximise productivity in its warehouses.
