The warehouse was exclusively dedicated to cater the online orders where they were having a storage model of Non modular racking structure without utilizing the predominant warehouse height. Our client was eyeing to find a storage solution to improve the storage capacity by increased space utilization as well as to reduce the picking time. The product variants are colossal and hence they faced difficulties in accessing, identification, sorting & segregation of material which caused them a higher turn-around time per order. The requirement was to instill the JUST IN TIME methodology with respect to the order fulfillment.
The detailed study had been carried out and the tailor made solution was made to improve the storage capacity & turn-around time
- Five Tier Modular Multitier Storage System for storage of material through carton boxes of varied dimensions
- Material Swivel gate had been provided to Access and retrieve the palletized material through Material Handling Equipment
- Catwalk provisions had been designed to enable the trolley and hand pallet truck movements to handle the SKU during picking operation
