Selecting diferent item types for efficient outbound shipments.
Many customers require us to combine product types by the case on a single pallet for consolidated delivery. We manage such orders both electronically and through paper instruction many, many times a day. With advance notice, we pick cases to pallets prior to a truck's arrival and can turn an entire load in as little as two hours. Wait times, as a result, are very brief. When leveraging our drop trailer program, drivers spend virtually no time on our docks.
Some customers require as much as 80% of their outbound shipments to be case picked. When these circumstances involve smaller cases, such as fish and seafood, as many as 2,500 cases may be picked, combined on pallets and loaded.
