The company had been using standard shelving to store all items in their warehouse but were experiencing issues with the speed of picking, particularly at peak periods, such as seasonal sales.
After discussing the challenges being faced and the key objectives for the project, Thistle proposed changing their approach to split the picking and packing areas and using a combination of carton live shelving and pigeon hole shelving.
Thistle Systems’ Sales Director, Alan Scott, explained “One of the key requirements of a successful Carton Live Shelving System is knowing your numbers, so it was essential that the company were able to break down their stock into slow, medium and fast-moving items.”
He continued, “This enables us to design a solution which provides the right amount of stock in the most effective location to maximise both utilisation of space and efficiency of the picking process.”
