One of the world’s leading healthcare equipment providers has just completed the implementation of facility modifications and updated material handling equipment solutions in an FDA compliant environment. The company expects 30% improvements in productivity, increased capacity and expanded longevity of their FDA compliant distribution center.

Working with TransTech Consulting, a Blue Horseshoe company, through this 18 month transition, operations were studied, data analyzed, viable alternatives developed and updated solutions were detail-designed for implementation. Benefits generated from the project include:

  • Expanded shipping dock and staging areas
  • Increased cooler capacity
  • Improved productivities from receiving through shipping
  • Voice Directed picking; picking directly into shipping containers
  • Weigh-in-motion QC processes
  • High-speed sortation
  • Expanded individual productivity tracking
  • Labor management

All solutions were designed to integrate with SAP eWMS functionality being implemented later this year.
