5 Ways to Increase Profit With Simple Picking Automation
Increase your operation’s profitability through improvements in inventory accessibility, floor space, time, improved
ergonomics and better accuracy.
Investing in automated storage and retrieval systems—such as horizontal carousels, vertical carousels, vertical lift modules (VLMs) and vertical buffer modules (VBMs) —optimizes manual picking processes, which leads to increased profits. That’s because, by implementing automation, multiple areas of a manufacturing or distribution
facility will benefit from savings in inventory accessibility, floor space, time, improved ergonomics and better accuracy.
How will your facility, and your bottom line, be impacted? To justify your cost for low risk picking automation,
consider five key areas of potential profit in your current warehousing and order fulfillment operations:
- How much labor does your picking operation require?
- What is the value of additional floor space?
- Are picking operations fast enough to meet customer demand?
- What is the cost of an absent, or injured, worker?
- How much does a picking mistake cost?
This white paper outlines the five areas of improvement an investment in automated storage and picking systems
will produce, yielding increased profits for your facility.
