Why an Analysis May Change Your Mind about Warehouse Automation

March 25, 2019

We all know there is a difference between long-term and short-term storage in a cold storage warehouse. Fact is that some food needs to be moved more frequently than others. Warehouse automation may seem like the right answer for tracking product, but that may not always be the case. The rule of thumb is that warehouse automation pays off if you store product short-term, but where do you draw the line? 1 month? 3 months? 6 months? And what amount of warehouse automation gives you the best ROI?

 

These are valid questions to consider, but no two warehouses are the same. To find out what is needed for your cold storage facility, you may want to consider a warehouse analysis. By utilizing the expertise of Integral Strategic Solutions, we can offer a warehouse analysis that can determine not only the need for warehouse automation, but the right amount of warehouse automation. We analyze the number of products stored and the product turn around to determine your warehouse automation needs. A small investment can yield cost-savings and a more efficient warehouse.
