Material Flow Analysis
Material flow is the organized movement of products from point A to point B throughout plant and warehouse storage facilities. From the loading dock to, well, the loading dock individual SKUs take strategic paths or at least they should be strategic. If storage system, labor or equipment inefficiencies exist, we’ll find and correct them with a material flow analysis.
We begin by tracking path that pallets, cases, and eaches take through your warehouse facility. We examine how inventory is in-processed, stored, picked and ultimately packaged and shipped. This thorough review will help us determine how and where to reduce touches and steps throughout each phase. The goal is to eliminate wasted resources while increasing throughput and order processing accuracy.

Integrating Pallet Rack Storage & Pick Modules for Optimized Order Fulfillment
In a warehouse or industrial manufacturing facility, the shortest distance for inventory to flow from in processing (or raw material) to out the dock doors is most likely not in a straight line. A variety of storage rack, pick modules and conveyors are often integrated into the complete system to optimize inventory flow.
