University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust
Thanks to the innovative vision of Head of Warehousing & Logistics, Dave Lightening, this pioneering NHS Trust has now modernised, rationalised and centralised their storage with Industore – implementing six, ten-meter automated storage and retrieval units for fast-moving files.
Parts Town UK
Parts Town UK store up to 70% of all stock inside the 12 metres high Hänel Lean-Lifts. Warehouse staff run a busy centre, picking up to 200 orders per hour and shipping over 850 orders per day. Featuring a cluster of twenty four vertical lifts, each system is linked up with the company’s ERP system. Employees use scanners that record all pick and put operations, with orders automatically being assigned job numbers and clearly indicating where specific items are stored inside the lift systems.
Before the project started, we set an ambitious target of transferring 11,000 files a day. Thanks to Industore, we’re now hitting 16,000 a day. That’s been achieved because of the technology and the support from the Industore team. The clear stage-gates and timeline, the honest pricing and support is why I am an Industore advocate – and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”
