Benefits of an Optimized Material Handling System and How to Achieve These Benefits in Your Distribution Center

The right material handling system is very beneficial to a distribution center's operation. It will increase efficiency, density, selectivity, and ultimately profits.

In order to achieve these outcomes, the right layout and integration of material handling solutions must be put together. This is why it's so important to use an experienced material handling integrator to help design your system.

There are a number of steps an integrator will work through with you in order to achieve your optimal pick module solution:

  1.  Gain a thorough understanding of your operation, including number and types of SKUs, available space, throughput requirements, and current material handling methods used.
  2. Educate you on material handling system options that make sense for your operation. For example, pallet flow vs. pallet runner, static racking vs. dynamic racking, going with an automation option vs. not.
  3. Based on your feedback, develop a layout that optimizes your space and SKUs.
  4. One the layout is approved, the integrator will then project manage the entire material handling system through completion.
