Product Flow Solutions
This pick module illustrates how carton flow, pallet flow and selective rack are integrated together with a mezzanine and conveyor system to save floor space, increase picking times and provide a seamless order fulfillment process.
In order to maximize box storage without comprising adherence to fire codes, REB designed an order picker system with unique flue keeper and mid-span carton stop features. Learn how this solution ended up saving this records storage company over $300K and additional 20% savings on shelf material costs in this month's case study.
The racking system in your warehouse facility serves as the entire framework for your operation. This comparison chart shows the advantages to each racking system and how they compare to each other in terms of density, selectivity, product volume and cost.
In this case study you will learn how REB designed a layout option to maximize a manufacturer's vertical storage for their new building expansion. This project was divided into two phases and consisted of selective, carton flow and cantilever racking systems to allow for storage of varying sizes to be easily accessed for faster picking.
Integrating keg flow to your beer wholesale or distribution center storage is a unique solution to increase storage density while maintaining picking rates. This article provides an overview of keg flow specifications, applications and what you need to assess to optimize your operation.
If you are planning to build a new material handling system or reconfigure your existing one, knowing the building codes in your location, if you are in a higher risk seismic zone and what that means for your material handling system is very important.
A mattress manufacturer needed to move from an existing 270,000 sq. ft. facility to a 130,000 sq. ft. facility. We proposed a 2-deep drive-in racking system which increased storage density while allowing the manufacturer to continue using their existing lift equipment. The result was a layout that exceeded the current capacity without leasing a second location. Additionally, this solution estimated an annual real estate savings of $840K (based on $8/sq. ft.)
