WAREHOUSE SPACE & LABOR CHALLENGES
A global manufacturer and distributor of plastics, rubber and chemicals was running out of space in its facilities to store and prepare plastic resin to be shipped to customers across the U.S. In addition to warehouse storage issues, the company struggled to retain forklift operators, which was hurting their productivity and throughput.
™consultants provided a full service solution including new warehouse designs that maximized the customer’s storage space and incorporated automation. The new facility layouts featured shuttle racking to increase storage density, as well as AGVs to provide reliable, automated transport of materials. Implementing these solutions helped the company optimize its operations, address labor shortages and significantly increase throughput.
