Many businesses experience spikes in demand – whether it’s a manufacturer managing an increase in the production schedule, a distributor dealing with increased fulfilment requests or a retailer servicing peak demand in the run up to Christmas.
Some increases are planned but some just catch you on the hop – throwing the operation into a state of turmoil as you run to stand still. As John Lennon once said “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans…”
If you need to react quickly to production spikes and are looking for a quick solution to reduce picking times and improve the efficiency of your warehouse space, then floor mounted corrugate pick bins could be the answer.
The benefits of corrugate pick bins:
- Create a more efficient pick and pack space to help decrease pick times
- Dismantle with ease in times of lower capacity, they can be stored to save another day!
- They help you react quickly to spikes in demand for existing SKUs or incorporate new product lines.
As corrugate pick bins are made to order they can be made in a number of bespoke sizes and designs – ensuring that you get the right fit for your warehouse. You can choose the bin access you require – fully and partially open faces, straight or chute fronts – and also customise an inner tray to subdivide the bin, increasing the number of pick locations further and allowing storage of like product in adjacent locations. They can also be made with integral feet for pallet and fork lift handling.
