In our experience, companies who are ready for automation are experiencing one or more of these common problems. You can analyze your facility and ask yourself:

  • Do you struggle with seasonal peaks?
  • Is your picking rate slower than your shipping rate? Or vice versa?
  • Do you have excessive pick touches or double handling?
  • Are you struggling with order accuracy?
  • Is your team logging excessive overtime hours?
  • Do you have safety concerns?
  • Do you have underutilized vertical warehouse space?
  • Are you reaching limitations in your physical space?
  • Do you have long travel distances while completing tasks?
  • Are you over capacity, with items stored on docks or in aisles?

If one or more answers to these questions is yes, then you should talk with DAK Solutions to see how we can help.
