The Challenge

Because of intense sales growth, a national internet provider of sporting goods was rapidly running out of space. The resulting congestion was leading to order fill-rate, productivity, and accuracy problems.

Existing storage media, which was completely full, consisted mostly of wire shelving. Batch-order picking was carried out in a serpentine fashion—using carts.

Sales increases were expected to continue - causing more congestion, and leading to greater productivity, throughput, and accuracy problems.

The Solution

Siggins' engineers designed and implemented a multi-level, picking-module supported by rack and shelving. The new system included media to match 5-years of expected growth—within an expanded building.

Cost savings generated by the initial system implementation, paid for it in less than two years.
