Efficient selection: Expertly deployed innovation. Faster turnaround.
Technology and item velocity-specific solutions help ES3 achieve the scale and productivity to save money and time for manufacturers and retailers.
ES3 knows how to efficiently manage countless items at once. Here, tens of thousands of items are classified by velocity and selection solutions are optimized. Ultra-fast movers, like water and paper, are handled in a flow-through area designed for speed and minimal handling. These types of items are picked using voice selection technology. Slow movers, which are more than half of the items but less than 20% of the total volume shipped, are selected using automation. This solution combination makes the selection process much more efficient and faster. We can cover miles of warehouse space in minutes.
Retailers can now order layers or cases at the same cost structure as full truckloads. Collaborative warehousing means multi-manufacturer pallets can be stored, selected, and shipped under one roof without the need for separate mixing and distribution centers. With ES3, everyone wins.
