Faster, but safer. More SKUs, but less space. Lower costs, but higher volumes.
Greater throughput, but fewer errors. Better efficiency, but more flexibility. Sound
familiar? For retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers, these are the ongoing
challenges of the modern marketplace.
It is not hard to understand where this comes from — there is a never ending
pressure from consumers for greater variety, delivered faster, at a lower price. And
as performance expectations of supply chains grow in an increasingly integrated
global economy, the pressures will only grow as well.
Retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers need a strategy to keep up and keep
ahead. This white paper presents the case for one such strategy: Automated
Mixed Case Palletizing (AMCAP), a methodology for creating mixed case pallets —
automatically and effectively.
