A well planned Distribution Center can increase capacity, material flow, efficiency, and safety throughout your facility.
The primary objective of a distribution center is to manage and protect inventory and move it safely from point A to point B in the fastest, most efficient means possible. To optimize their DC, more and more Owners and Operations Managers are incorporating Wildeck® storing, lifting, and guarding products with automated conveyor systems, Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS), rack systems, and pick modules.
Wildeck Work Platforms, Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors, and Safety Guarding Products improve your distribution center in the following areas.
Storing - Work Platform
A Wildeck® work platform can free-up valuable floor space and improve worker access to inventory and equipment. Our experienced team of engineers will design a custom work platform to maximize your vertical space and provide structural support for the conveyor systems you require to increase distribution center throughput rates. A Wildeck work platform also has the advantage of being modular and scalable for easy future expansions.
Lifting - Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor (VRCs)
Responding to customer needs is key. To achieve this, your Distribution Center must be designed to minimize order-to-fulfillment cycle time. A single or multiple Wildeck® VRC (vertical reciprocating conveyor/material lift) installation can provide efficient material flow at any location. VRCs easily integrate with work platforms and other systems throughout your DC to quickly and safely move totes, boxes, or pallets of small, large, or bulky items from one level to another.
Guarding - Safety Products
Protecting inventory, facility equipment, and your personnel is a primary concern throughout your operation. Wildeck® Safety Guarding Products can help protect your investment and employees from forklift trucks, heavy carts, or other moving equipment. They can define pedestrian walkways, protect shelving and columns, work areas, doorways, and ensure that your valuable distribution center inventory is protected from unforeseen accidents.
