Sweeper Sorter Offers Cost-effective Distribution Solution
After relocating to a larger facility with sufficient space to handle current throughput and future growth, a mid-size distributor set out to conquer a new challenge: improve the efficiency of its fulfillment processes.
The legacy retail and direct-to-consumer fulfillment operations ran rife with inefficiencies. Manual sortation of small, hard-to-sort items meant several touchpoints before distributing products to multiple locations, risking inaccurate picks and shipping errors. The labor-intensive processes required excessive travel time per order and risked counterproductive levels of congestion in pick aisles if order volumes continued to grow at anticipated levels.
