Next pioneers a new era in order picking productivity
Next, one of the UK’s leading retailers of clothing, footwear, accessories and home products, has implemented an innovative high performance order picking solution which has delivered a dramatic increase in productivity and capacity at its distribution center in South Elmsall, West Yorkshire. Designed and implemented by automated logistics systems supplier Dematic, the ‘High Rate Put Stations’ have achieved a near-threefold increase in order picking rates, along with far greater peak capacity to meet changing business requirements.
High Rate Put Stations: Ergonomically optimized for performance
One of the first such systems to be implemented in the UK, the High Rate Put Stations at the Next distribution center represent a step change in order picking efficiency. Dedicated to the company’s fast moving clothing, footwear, accessories and home product lines, twenty stations fulfill orders for up to 24 stores each.
