Topper Industrial looks at a distribution center as a production (or quasi-manufacturing) operation. Goods arrive in bulk, they are stored until needed, retrieved, and assembled into shipments. The efficient processing of a distribution center can greatly impact the final price of the product delivered to the end user, or in many cases the customer.
The Fork Truck Free environment allows less walk-time to gather products for shipping and with efficient processing it directly impacts the cost of goods through reduced labor, and indirectly impacts the cost of goods through reduced inventory. Reducing the processing time of order processing can directly reduce the amount of inventory necessary to be stocked in the operation.
Topper Industrial MHE (material handling equipment), such as Industrial carts, containers, racks and Topper tube and joint can ensure that the right product is delivered to the right line in the right sequence to impact maximum lean efficiencies.
A distribution center (DC), especially in the Amazon Prime era, has a wide variety of SKU and products shipping from a single facility. In many distribution centers multiple sized packages need to utilize one production line in a warehouse. DCs must move stocked products or goods for redistribution to retailers, wholesalers, or directly to consumers. A distribution center has become an increasingly significant aspect of the entire order fulfillment process. Distribution centers are demand driven.
