The Best Material Handling Equipment for Order Fulfillment Centers
The eCommerce industry has grown explosively in the last several years, especially during the previous 12 months. Throughout 2020 and into 2021, many people turned to online shopping for a safer experience amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Companies relying on distributors and order fulfillment centers have experienced unprecedented strains due to the heavy demand for eCommerce. Many of these organizations are exploring new order fulfillment technologies and investing in high-quality material handling equipment to accommodate an influx of online purchases.
If you own an eCommerce business or order fulfillment center, it’s vital to take steps to maximize efficiency throughout the pack-and-ship process. This starts with knowing the best material handling systems that your organization needs to serve your customers and stay competitive.
Mobile Aisle Shelving
If your order fulfillment center is struggling to store your inventory, a mobile aisle shelving system can provide greater flexibility and increased storage using an innovative floor track system. Your mobile aisle shelving will slide along these tracks, allowing you to compress your storage system and save significant space for new products and increased eCommerce inventory.
Automated Conveyor Systems
A-Lined Handling Systems offers state-of-the-art conveyors to shorten the time between order picking and order packing. Our carefully designed conveyor systems will fit seamlessly into your order fulfillment center and allow your team to complete more orders in a much shorter time.
A powered conveyor can automate the transportation of goods from one part of your fulfillment center to the next, and you can rely on A-Lined Handling Systems to create a custom system that suits your building’s unique layout. We’ll work closely with your order fulfillment team to determine the most efficient powered conveyor configuration for your operation.
Storage mezzanines help you take full advantage of the vertical space in your order fulfillment center and increase employee safety by eliminating the need to stack inventory too high off the floor. Steel mezzanines crafted and installed by A-Lined Handling Systems can effectively prevent you from investing in more expensive expansions or renovations to your order fulfillment center while streamlining your team’s workflow.
We offer a wide range of industrial mezzanine options so that you can tailor your new vertical storage solution to your warehouse’s layout. Our mezzanines feature a unique interlocking construction that offers high-load-bearing storage without any obstructive bracing.
Pallets are invaluable storage solutions, and your eCommerce order fulfillment center can increase efficiency with pallet racking solutions from A-Lined Handling Systems. We can help you configure the ideal pallet racking system that makes it easier for your team to efficiently store inventory and process orders while increasing workplace safety.
