CASE STUDY #1

COOLER-DRY PACKAGING

Before Utilization Assessment

OBSTACLES

  • Production capacity had increased requiring the warehouse to hold more product than previously.
  • Addition of seasonally based SKUs created the need for additional storage capacity for the “pre-build” prior to the season.
  • Third party cooler space was not available locally and too costly to utilize long distance cooler space which was in short supply.
  • Shipping product to a third party and receiving it back was not feasible due to a lack of shipping/receiving dock doors.
  • The current pallet rack was over 30 years old with inherent safety issues.
  • The current pallet rack system was underutilized due to significant damage issues and lost locations.
  • The new pallet rack system had to be installed during ongoing operations of the facility while maintaining a food grade cleanliness.
  • During the summer installation the facility temperature could not go below minimum temperature standards or the entire inventory was at risk

SOLUTION

  • Provided capacity for 5 years of volume growth
  • Eliminated need for off site cooler storage
