Texi are experts in textile logistics, and our work is to simplify and streamline the everyday handling of work clothes. From creating a smarter logistics and internal distribution to making extraction and returning of the clothes as easy as possible. Working with industries such as healthcare and food manufacturing, where staff must change into a new set of hygienic and protective work clothes daily, it’s our job to make sure the textile logistics is flawless. So that you can focus on your core business.
Our smart logistics solution for work clothes help your staff easily collect and return their work clothes in dispenser cabinets around your premises. These units should be placed strategically close to the users, for example in their changing rooms or in a corridor outside – to make it easier for your staff to leave their work clothes on their way to or from work.
With TEXI Logistic Solution, it’s easy to track an article throughout the supply chain. From laundry to delivery of clean textiles, via the users and all the way back to the laundry. This way, you will always know where the garment is located – whether it’s dirty, being cleaned or transported. You can also track if the garment is currently in use, and by whom.
The logistic solution utilises RFID technology for identifying and tracking work clothes. Every item is marked with a RFID (radio frequency identification) chip with unique properties.These RFID chips are sewn into a hem or waistband of a garment. In addition, every station for extracting and returning work clothes are equipped with RF readers. This makes it possible to track the garments through the entire logistic chain.
Texi supports RFID solutions with both HF chip (High Frequency) and UFH chip (Ultra High Frequency). Read more about the RFID technology here.
With our solution for textile logistics, you will be in full control over your work clothes, so that you always can ensure the right quantity for your business. You will know where the clothes are located; if they for example is on the storage shelf in the staff changing rooms. You can also track who is using them right now, and if someone forgot to return them.
With TEXI Logistic Solution you will have control over your whole investment; how many times the garments have been washed, when they are worn-out, whether you have an abundance of clothes not used and how long since a garment has been washed. Simultaneously, this solution also ensures that the correct quantity of items is in stock when you need them. The status of every item is updated in real-time via three main components: TEXI Dispensers, TEXI Return Units and TEXI Management System. The RFID chip communicates with the TEXI Management System and gives you full control over the textile logistics.
A smarter textile logistics service will make the day-to-day life easier for every person wearing work clothes, and gives you better control over the textile stock, hygiene and waste of textiles. Find out more about the true cost of lost work clothes.
