Rhino-Rack has introduced the use of Article Numbers into the business. An article number will be defined as a Alpha numeric code used to identify the kitting of multiple parts. Article numbers will use an Alpha numeric 6 digit code: For Example JA0001, JA0002, JA0003 and so on. The cost of a Roof Rack Article will be the sum of its parts and quantities.
For more info on Article numbers check out the Article Number Explainer Video.
Also available for download is a spread sheet of all current article numbers that you can use as a reference or you can use to import into your systems.
