See the results

  • 20% of product received is back stock – instead of sending these through the receiving sorter and clogging the system, they are immediately separated as they come in the door – increasing receiving sorter efficiency by that 20%. “peel off back stock”
  • 182 lanes of pallet flow rack for staging outgoing store shipments, increasing vertical space usage and eliminating need for additional expansion
  • Utilized gap and store, or reverse accumulation to improve conveyability of wide product mix.
  • Cognex camera label scanners improved read rate from 85% to over 98%. More labels being scanned correctly means more product flows to the correct destinations.
