THE PROJECT

PeakLogix helped HandCraft Services reimagine how it could fulfill nearly 8 million pounds of linens and apparel annually. HandCraft expanded into a new facility to advance its business performance with three key goals: improve inventory tracking and control, create greater operational efficiencies, and increase the utilization of floor space. We helped them achieve these goals in partnership with SSI Schaefer.

SOLUTION

PeakLogix designed and implemented an automated goods-to-man picking process, effectively moving clean, folded linens to storage and then to transportation as needed. The state-of-the-art operations centers on a WMS and radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology to pairs custom conveyor equipment and vertical storage to increase operational efficiencies.

PROJECT SPECS
  • One (1) Schaefer Miniload Crane with Goods-to-Man Picking
  • SSI Schaefer Totes with Antibacterial Coating
  • One (1) Aisle Miniload Crane
  • AS/RS with 900 Tote Capacity

With this implementation, the client was able to expand storage; increase productivity; reduce errors, labor costs and fulfillment time; and improve workforce scalability and employee safety.
