The European beverage market is experiencing an average growth rate of 5% year on year. Is your operation ready to meet this demand?


Transform your greatest challenges into opportunities

Consumer demands are driving the beverage industry to push operations both in the facility and on the delivery route.

SKU Proliferation

Consumer demand continues to drive unprecedented levels of SKU proliferation in the beverage industry – an item out-of-stock is still not an option.

Take charge of the invasion

  • Use variable height picking processes to increase SKU capacity
  • Place slower-moving SKUs above faster-moving ones for efficient access to frequently picked items
  • Add case flow lanes to pick lines to accommodate more SKUs
