Increased productivity and storage capacity of medical supply distributor

The project

Outgrowing their current space and not ready to add another 100,000 square feet (a $7M CapEx project), our client needed a way to expand storage in their current 500,000 sq. ft. distribution center without affecting production areas.

The solution

PeakLogix integrated a custom solution that reconfigured the design of operations and reduced the space needed for fulfillment, increased the space for storage, and allowed a greater ability to grow without expanding footprint. The design improved efficiency and productivity by using vertical storage solutions, TGW smart conveyor, and print and apply technology by Panther Industries.

The results

Reduced error / customer complaints and touch points by 50%.
Increased productivity by 47% and throughput by 25%.

PeakLogix helped a growing medical device distributor expand storage, increase productivity, reduce errors, decrease labor costs; and improve employee morale. The new design achieved 47% gains in productivity and $1,300,000 annual savings.
