Order Fulfillment Efficiency

Manual Handling / Acme Solution

Manual Handling

Manual picking and order fulfillment processes can be time-consuming and less efficient. Optimising the picking routes and ensuring that workers can quickly locate and retrieve items is a constant challenge.

Acme Solution

Conveyor systems automate the movement of materials and products throughout the warehouse and between different stages of order fulfillment, reducing manual handling time.

Robots can be employed for order-picking tasks with high precision and speed.

WMS enhances inventory management and optimises picking routes, offering real-time visibility into inventory levels.

Limited Scalability

Manual Handling

Scalability is a constraint in manual warehouses, making it hard to handle growing order volumes and diversified product offerings.

Acme Solution

Automation solutions are scalable and can be implemented gradually. Conveyor Systems, AS/RS and WMS streamline operations, enhance space utilisation, and accommodate rising order volumes and product diversity. Automated picking robots and packing machines can significantly increase order processing speed.

Inventory Accuracy

Manual Handling

Maintaining accurate inventory counts can be difficult. Human errors in recording, picking, and shelving items can lead to discrepancies in inventory levels in form of stockouts or overstock situations, delays in order fulfillment and customer dissatisfaction.

Acme Solution

Implementing a Warehouse Management System (WMS) helps track inventory levels, locations, and movements. 

Using barcodes and RFID as well as sensors identify and track goods and prevent errors.

Operational Cost

Manual Handling

Labour, equipment, and training are needed to keep operations running smoothly and products handled safely. For manual operations with fluctuating demand, it can be hard to source additional manpower short-term and ensure timely training.

Acme Solution

Conveyors, AS/RS systems, and other automated solutions move goods quickly and efficiently, with significantly reduced risk of accidents or errors. Automation solutions can integrate all aspects of the materials handling process, from picking and packing to shipping, reducing labour- and cost-intense processes.

Space Management

Manual Handling

Increasing and fluctuating demand make it hard to predict order volumes.  Meeting customers' need for swift delivery requires maintaining larger stock volumes, which strains storage capacity.

Acme Solution

Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems and smart software solutions allow for better use of existing warehouse space, maximising vertical and horizontal storage space.
