The U.S. Air Force needed better deployment of $800 million in supplies to F-15E aircraft and Expeditionary Combat Support Troops. Their facility served a fleet of nearly 700 vehicles and deployments of more than 50 C-17 equivalent loads of cargo.
DAK Solutions suggested a heavy duty work platform with vertical reciprocating conveyor, pallet rack, cantilever rack and order pick systems with rail-guided order pick vehicles.
The Air Force achieved a 10% increase in storage capacity for pallets weighing up to 10,000 pounds. They saw a 25% increase in productivity using the rail-guided order picking vehicle, 15% pick accuracy improvement, and increased speed in staging critical military material for deployment.
