Backcountry Solution Increases Fulfillment Space Thanks to Hytrol Integration Partner Hoj Innovations
Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/21/2016 -- Hoj Innovations, Hytrol's integration partner, worked with Backcountry to develop a unique solution capable of providing an increase in their logistic footprint and fulfillment space, while reducing processing costs and shipping expenses. The system is comprised of several customized applications, one of which provides a noteworthy approach to the traditional "pick and pass" order fulfillment process. This solution utilizes an overhead conveyor spine to vertically sort product to the three levels of the pick module. This allows the main conveyor line to transport customer-order totes only, while replenishment and empty totes are transported directly to their specified zone.
Hoj is the leader in organizational consulting and material handling solutions for the Rocky Mountain area and beyond. Fifty years ago, Hoj opened its doors as an engineering-driven family business with a mission to change the industry. Today, Hoj operates with 14 acres of design and development facilities, seven buildings and over 50 service vehicles.
