Company offers innovative, scalable solutions to its clients, enabling e-commerce competencies
In its continuing efforts to enable e-commerce, wholesale and retail companies improve their warehouse efficiency, Acme Intralog, has introduced Colour-Picking technology in partnership with Kardex Remstar, the company announced in a recent press communiqué.
Growing order demand and limited storage capacity combined with fluctuating demand leave e-commerce companies struggling to meet customer delivery times. Using Kardex Remstar’s Colour-Picking solution, Acme offers a scalable solution to its clients, enabling e-commerce facilities to flex labour to meet spikes in order demand.
Colour-Picking ensures higher throughput and maximum labour efficiency in the warehouse with up to 70% space, doubled picking throughput and a ROI of less than 18 months. Based on the principles of Colour-Picking technology, Colour-Pick guides multiple operators through the picking process using coloured lights allowing you to add or reduce labour resources to meet current order demand, the press statement continued.
“E-commerce in the region is growing at an unprecedented rate and sometimes companies find that demand surpasses capacity. We offer automated solutions like Colour-Picking technology, in partnership with international manufacturers, to help customers to scale their demands and avoid the need to build extensions, new facilities, or to outsource,” affirmed Navin Narayan, CEO, Acme Intralog.
“When demand is high, Colour-Picking allows multiple workers to pick from dynamic work zones using pick-to-light technology for higher throughput. When demand is lower, the pick-to-light technology can be operated with only one worker. This allows organizations to easily scale their labour force to meet peaks in order picking demand,” he continued.
Colour-Picking pick-to-light technology combines several orders into a batch that can be simultaneously processed. The unique colour-picking concept adds coloured lights into the batch picking process allowing multiple operators to pick from one work zone.
The Colour-Picking process can achieve up to 300 order lines per hour per operator to achieve higher throughput.
It is a team picking philosophy with high throughput and dynamic workflows. Using multiple workers in one zone, multiple batches of orders can be filled at one time to achieve higher throughput, the press note concluded.
