East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/13/2015 -- Picking Perfection, sponsored by Pcdata USA, brings important and interesting information to those in the material handling, warehousing, distribution, and manufacturing sectors. From best practices to industry data, this weekly communique reports on trend data, process improvement, and technology evaluations about picking, packing, shipping and profitability.
Pcdata USA has pioneered many supply chain automation solutions. For decades European manufacturing facilities, faced with higher land and labor costs and different order profiles, have focused in bringing automation inside the facilities. North American companies understand how these European companies have weighed certain qualitative aspects differently, until now. Given pressure on headcounts, increasing land constraints, and the need for more case and unique individual picking, North American facilities are seeing the traditional barriers to automation subside.
Beyond typical analysis points such as CapEx and OpEx, even the most basic solutions, such as a PickCarts, are part of a deeper conversation on how to develop a thorough and holistic assessment of automation options. There are many affordable technologies available that can help a small to medium operation implement automation with quick ROI's, however, most managers are not aware of the options available and the new technologies coming. As E-commerce grows, consumers demand quicker deliveries, the number of SKU's increases, and companies look for automation solutions.
