Sortation as a Competitive Advantage

Dematic Sortation Systems increase in responsiveness and enable warehouses and distribution centers to significantly reduce inventory by receiving and dispatching goods just-in-time. Cross-docking and flow-through handling processes operate with Dematic Sortation Systems to distribute cases to stores when they arrive. Some retailers handle up to 90% of their goods this way, driving their facilities to near stockless operations by eliminating the handling steps of put-away, replenishment, and picking. 

Leading retailers have used high-throughput Dematic Sortation Systems for years to distribute goods at the lowest cost per case. Manufacturers of many fast moving consumer goods use Dematic Sortation Systems to handle product cartons as they come off the production line.
