Increase Throughput to Drive Revenue Growth
In competitive distribution and fulfillment center operations, where even marginal utilization improvements can increase annual site revenues by potentially millions, the Connected Distribution Center uncovers hidden opportunities for throughput gains.
By monitoring all activities related to order fulfillment, the system gathers trending utilization data and alerts operators when throughput impediments put daily production targets at risk. Whether identifying repetitive jams or detecting errors, the Connected Distribution Center exposes the root causes of throughput barriers so DC operators can quickly address and resolve issues.
Increasing output by even 1 percent can result in significant hourly, daily and annual throughout gains — and potentially millions in annual revenues — all without adding new resources. Here’s how:
In a 750k square-foot facility, operating 5,200 annual hours and running 200 cases per minute at $10 per case, increasing throughput by 1 percent will result in 120 additional cases per hour, or the financial equivalent of:
- $1,200 per hour
- $24k per day
- $6M per year
If you’re ready to benefit from the immediate and long-term revenue impacts that come from exceeding your company’s throughput objectives, the Connected Distribution Center delivers utilization improvements across the enterprise.
