Create up to 140 percent more pick slots while minimizing travel and labor requirements

Increasing Slot Capacity and Picking Efficiency


In a distribution center, fast and accurate order fulfillment defines success. But as SKU counts increase and order profiles change, racking and slotting systems that functioned adequately in the past may begin to compromise order fulfillment efficiency. Additionally, increased picking complexity and operator travel times, mean distribution center managers face challenges of efficiently stocking, fulfilling and replenishing their ever-increasing SKU counts, and controlling labor costs while maintaining high customer service delivery levels.

This white paper discusses how an innovative multi-level lift truck design can expand the “golden zone” of the pick face, enabling new slotting strategies that increase capacity and picking efficiency, reduce labor and storage requirements and decrease overall materials handling costs.
