Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/29/2016 -- Hytrol Integration Partner, viastore Systems, Inc. was featured in Robotics and Automation News. The feature, titled, "The role of experts in distribution center robotics and automation," discussed how distribution centers are facing ever shorter delivery times, requiring higher flexibility and efficient goods management.
A wide range of different goods, rapid and precise delivery, and superior quality are just some of the demands that have to be met in this context. Innovative intralogistics solutions help in meeting these demands. Solutions must ensure maximum inventory transparency and the optimal connection of shipping systems. Intelligent order picking solutions reduce throughput times and errors.
Ben Outwater, director of customer service at viastore, based in Grand Rapids, MI, reported that automated sortation systems help reduce labor costs, injuries, and the time to consolidate and ship orders for manufacturers, retailers, and wholesalers. Experienced engineers help design a sortation system that reduces cost of goods shipped.
Sortation systems help reduce the costs associated with receiving, order fulfillment (picking and packing), route delivery, palletizing, and shipping by increasing current throughput and order accuracy.
