Receiving - this process is important if there is a trailer loaded with different SKUs. It can help remove the cases from the trailer and sort them per SKU. After which, they can then be sorted and placed in a pallet with just one touch before the products can be prepared for shipping or stored away.
Picking - sorting the items in cartons that have several picking areas will be very vital to the overall production line. A case conveyor can be used to route products to the zones or picking areas where orders have been picked. Having this system in place will help shorten the order cycle time while maximizing the productivity of workers by paying attention or touching only the items that have picks.
Packing - at this stage, a sorter will be useful in routing the split case orders to the same packing station where items will be prepared for shipment. Or those items can also be routed to a more specific packing type according to the kind of packaging material they will be packed such as in cartons and poly-bags.
So, obviously, a case conveyor will be of big help to each of the processes above to make everything go smoothly and quickly. It can dramatically impact your bottom line, having happy customers with orders delivered right on time and without delays.
