Case Study: Box Carts Increase Efficiency

Post 5 of 58

Box carts help with organizing, storing and transporting empty cardboard boxes.

CHALLENGES: Our customers spend a lot of time and effort restocking their pack stations with boxes, which essentially adds cost in indirect movements.  As packers consume boxes, they need to be refilled.  In a traditional scenario, the packer has to leave their work station to go to a central area to get replacement boxes.  Additionally, many times an associate at a pack station will use the wrong size box because they are out of the correct size, and instead use what materials are available.

SOLUTION: We were able to provide a solution to their challenge. A box cart allows the associate to walk up and down a pack station line and refill station. The cart reduces shrink as associates always have the correct box on hand.  They don’t have to leave their station to pick additional materials, which essentially, increases their overall efficiency and productivity.
