The Challenge 

  • Struggling to consolidate multi-line orders from two facilities
  • Labor shortages created by the surge in demand 
  • Looking to enhance warehouse operations and meet peak requirements 

Our Solution

Geekplus collaborated with KPI Solutions to streamline warehouse operations at Outdoor Network's East Coast Distribution Center in Albany, Georgia. By integrating mobile robotic solutions, Geekplus moving robots efficiently handle oversized items, moving them to static shelving and pallet racks for putaway, and transporting oversized picks in carts to a consolidation area for outbound shipping. This solution boosted storage capacity, increased warehouse operational efficiency and ultimately improved the overall productivity of Outdoor Network's distribution center.

The Geek+ impact

  • Combined storage and picking into a single facility
  • Increased storage capacity and picking efficiency
  • Reduced labor dependency by almost 50%
