FILO Gravity System helps customers improve delivery times
A longstanding customer came to us asking for a solution to expand their capability to hold fast moving stock, increase the number of storage locations and continue to enhance their speed of dispatch.
As a distributor in the cleaning and janitorial supplies industry, their ability to deliver on promises is critical to customers. Consistent and fast delivery is a key service.
What we did
Products with no or little shelf life were identified and moved to a new area of the distribution centre in a FILO gravity system (First in, last out). To compliment this two separate roller based push back systems were added hold the fast pace bulk pallets, located near the goods in and out areas that also improved efficiency.
This new system freed up a number of positions in the existing pallet racking increasing storage locations as they required.
What it means for them
Working closely with the customer's Head of Customer Fulfilment, we were able to fulfil a key part of their ongoing programme to ensure that they have the right stock to meet customers orders on time and in full as their own business continues to grow.
Working in any operational warehouse, ensuring normal procedures are not interrupted is paramount. The key FILO systems and flow beds were installed with zero business disruption during night hours.
