Evike, a rapidly expanding online retailer of airsoft products in California, was having growth problem and needed more warehouse storage. The sorting and packing procedure were growing expensive and wasteful as the warehouse became overcrowded and disorganized. They examined their data and discovered that they lacked the "correct" space necessary to support the expansion of their airsoft product line. Customers experienced lengthier lead times as a result, and there was a greater chance of stock damage or loss. To solve the problems and help optimize their warehouse space, C&SS started the procedure and evaluation.
The C&SS team suggested using the UNEX SpeedCell® System because it would increase the customer satisfaction to store more goods in a smaller location, freeing up valuable floor space. For those of you that do not know, SpeedCell is a dynamic high-density shelving solution that maximizes space utilization within existing racks, helping warehouse and backroom operations improve pick speed and accuracy for valuable time and cost savings. The installation team also suggested using a carton flow bed design, which would enhance visibility and air circulation while lowering the likelihood of product damage. The C&SS management suggested a number of enhancements, such as:
• Putting in Place a More Effective Shelf System
• Enhancing Inventory Control
• Increasing Efficiency in Picking and Packaging
In order to assess compliance as well as fit and function, C&SS decided to install UNEX SpeedCell® into bays during their very busy season. Ultimately, C&SS successfully was able to add additional bays to their existing square foot facility. Surprisingly, with no extra structural changes, this installation increased the number of locations while maintaining their current footprint by locations per bay or locations in each aisle. Real-time inventory tracking has significantly improved with the design and installation of the UNEX SpeedCell® system!
By installing the UNEX SpeedCell® System, Evike and the C&SS were able to overcome difficulties associated with the existing warehouse storage space and its limitations.
C&SS delivered a custom designed solution for the client, exceeding their goals with the following:
• Higher Storage Capacity
