Required more storage space and desired more efficiency in picking process. Also needed to automate
the Return Goods process.
ISG assisted Baker in updating their existing facility with the following enhancements:
- Converted paper pick system to RF picking
- Installed a conveyor and barcode scanner system
- Added new rack and case flow shelving
- Added an additional warehouse consisting of Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) racking
- Overall reduced walk times and yielded a higher volume of shippables per day
- Installed an innovative 24VDC conveyor system for Returned Goods consisting of a 4 level
conveyor structure that has a vertical lift on each end. This system sorts the books and
routes returns to specific areas.
