Find the Right Logistics System to Lower Your Total Cost of Ownership

Looking for help with lean management and establishing better work processes? Take a deeper look at Smart Factory Logistics from Bossard. Below, we break down some of our parts and services so you can decide what will be the most helpful for you and your business.

SmartBin Cloud

SmartBin Cloud is the latest logistics technology from Bossard. SmartBin Cloud combines our tried-and-true SmartBin system with our intelligent modular label SmartLabel Cloud. Like our original SmartBin solution, SmartBin Cloud uses weight sensors to monitor your inventory. When a reorder point is reach, a new order will be placed automatically.

A new feature to SmartBin Cloud is the motion-triggered weight sensor that updates all stock and order information at every use (pick or refill).

SmartLabel Cloud

SmartLabel Cloud is an option for you if you cannot change or completely convert your existing system. SmartLabel Cloud can be added to any standard bin you may have, so it doesn’t require you to change anything about the way your factory currently runs.

The idea behind SmartLabel Cloud is that it will be an easy way for you to reorder products because the label has all the information to help you order parts without confusion. SmartLabel Cloud will also soon have the availability to be integrated with pick-to-light systems.


The idea behind the SmartBin part of Smart Factory Logistics is that we measure the number of goods that you have to increase efficiency. Do you want to implement just in time inventory at your facility? Luckily for you, you will be supplied with the correct number of materials at the correct time.


Bossard SmartLocker is the perfect solution for storing and keeping inventory of high value items and consumables. The items stored in a SmartLocker can only be accessed via an RFID card that allows you to have full access control.


SmartCard is a flexible system for assembly line delivery. Like the SmartLabel, this technology is another that can be very easily implemented into what you do now.

When an item is out of stock, you take the RFID card associated with it and you put the card into the electronic mailbox. Then, Bossard will replenish your product for you. This is slightly different from SmartLabel where you must order the product yourself.

Conventional Logistics Systems

With Bossard Code, data is recorded with a barcode reader and sent to Bossard. Then, Bossard takes care of the replenishment of your product for you.

Do you use certain parts quite frequently? That is where Bossard’s 2Bin system comes in.

You can get two standard bins for all your parts or whatever parts you need. These bins are arranged one behind the other, so when you use up the first one, you just start using the second one. In the meantime, Bossard will collect your empty bins and refill them at regular intervals.

There are various options and various levels of Bossard’s Smart Factory Logistics. You can start small or go big, but either way you will get the Proven Productivity from Bossard.
