The LiftLiner® – A perfect match for the new Sulzer pump factory
When building an automated production line and a logistics center to modernise their pump factory in Kotka, Sulzer decided to test what equipment brings the most efficiency to their internal logistics.
Ahlsell Sweden have been undergoing a huge expansion for the past 3 years and invested tens of millons euros to build a high storage warehouse. For this new operation they needed a suitable and efficient load carrier.
Because flagship automated sorting systems are undeniably glamorous, it is easy to overlook the huge potential efficiency improvements that can be achieved by optimising manual handling operations and maximising cubic fill.
Loose loading of parcels between terminals is a very common way of operating within Postal – and for good reasons. As a large part of the overall logistics costs is tied to transportation, assuring the maximal cubic fill especially for long distances in trucks or containers is smart and cost efficient.
You most likely know your yearly transport costs and cost per shipped unit. You will also know your DC personnel costs and total cost of DC operations. But do you know the hours used and the costs for replenishment in stores? Do you know how much it contributes to the total handling costs?
