Topper Industrial works with the demand for faster production of product in the distribution center. Of total importance is the ability to accurately pick product. Instead of fork trucks driving back and forth slowing down production, Topper Industrial carts deliver products to the line workers. Production rates increase often by 100 percent in the fork truck free distribution center environment.
As the process of handling involves more steps and becomes increasingly manualized, the cost increases. Storing products instead of receiving and immediately shipping them adds cost. Firms must determine when lost sales due to not having product on the shelves are balanced by increased handling and storage costs. Conversely, automating these additional manual steps can reduce the labor and costs associated with these processes.
All distribution centers have three main areas: the receiving dock, the storage area, and the shipping dock. In small organizations it is possible for the receiving and shipping functions to occur side-by-side, but in large centers, separating these areas simplifies the process. The demand for faster production has been created by the customer expectation. No longer is a consumer willing to order a product on Monday and receive it on Friday. Two-day shipping is now considered “slow” with many Amazon Prime customers insisting that any order in the morning should be at their doorstep by that afternoon.
