Zoning Solutions for Order Pickers

Zoned for Greater Productivity

High-throughput warehousing and distribution operations are constantly challenged to save space, time and money at every turn. Racks are getting higher. Aisles are getting narrower. Inventories are getting larger.

At the same time, skilled lift truck operators are in short supply and inexperienced employees are often required to meet seasonal demands. To maximize throughput and productivity, you need to minimize pick errors and variability. Zoning provides a fast and simple solution for improving consistency and efficiency.

Zoning ensures more consistent and reliable truck operation by controlling and restricting certain truck parameters - including speed and lift height - at precise locations in specific aisles. RFID tags embedded in the floor transmit instructions to your trucks, overriding manual controls to reduce the effects of human error and differences in operator skill, minimize truck and facility damage by avoiding collisions with known obstacles and increase picking speed and efficiency without compromising accuracy.
