The retailer was able to stay in the existing building due to the dense storage capacity of AutoStore.
For every 1 million units of static racking storage, the retailer gained 2.25 million units of storage in AutoStore, more than doubling facility capacity.
With goods to person picking versus person to goods, manual picking, the retailer reduced labor costs and variable operating expenses.
Picking from AutoStore ports provides a more ergonomic work environment. Operators previously walked 1.5 miles to reach each pick location within the static racking.
Order accuracy was greatly improved with the implementation of Exacta WCS and AutoStore.
