Established Candy Distributor Increases Pick Lines with UNEX Roller Rack and Carton Flow Beds
George J. Falter, a leading distributor of convenience store products, needed to increase the amount of SKUs they could process to help their customers meet consumer demand for confectionery variety in stores.
To help the distributor solve their challenge, UNEX recommended carton flow racking for this setting. George J. Falter incorporated 32 bays of carton flow and approximately 45 wire deck shelving units, resulting in three pick lines: two upstairs and one u-shaped line downstairs, housing 3,000 total SKUs.
Working with UNEX, the new system helped George J. Falter:
- Maximize space because they can now put any size box next to another, which creates more pick facings in the carton flow area
- Reduce walking time by storing the product in a spot where it can be picked efficiently, increasing picker productivity
- Improve ergonomics by putting everything within 5 feet, requiring less bending, reaching, and walking so that pickers can do their work safely
