Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/16/2016 -- Adding labor is not the answer to omni-channel complexity and growth proven in viastore Systems survey. viastore Systems, along with Modern Materials Handling magazine conducted the second annual study among top material handling managers to investigate and trend critical topics. The name of the report is, "Material Handling System Choices: Priorities, Approaches and Selection Processes of Decision Makers." The research was to better understand how companies are approaching decisions regarding the evaluation, purchase, and installation of automated material handling systems for distribution centers (DCs).
Results of the survey as well as the findings with the 2015 study pointed out the necessary steps involved in pragmatic material handling implementations. The best, most practical way forward when contemplating material handling systems choices is to learn from peers. This benchmark study is a chance to see what type of automated systems companies are choosing, which warehouse or order fulfillment processes those systems address, and what mix of partners—OEMs, integrators and consultants—companies are tapping to help design, deploy, and maintain effective material handling solutions.
