Are your operators moving goods excessively before putaway and walking a lot to print labels at fixed stations? Do workers wait around for goods that they need to put away?
If you answered yes, then maybe it’s time to make the case for mobile workstations.
By eliminating costly motion and relying on mobile carts that are equipped with an integrated power system, companies can effectively:
- boost dock-to-stock cycle time,
- reduce labor by as much as $10,000 per worker,
- eliminate improperly labeled products, and
- significantly increase capacity.
As the distribution environment continues to evolve and as customer demands change, the traditional warehouse or distribution center (DC) setup is quickly falling out of favor.
Facilities that optimize space, accommodate more product, improve labor usage, minimize accidents, and fully leverage material handling equipment helping operations work smarter, better, and faster.
This whitepaper explores the value of bringing in a professional warehouse consultant to help optimize operation flow.
