Reduced travel distance
The stock is placed in a row, one after the other. 1 package per product is visible. This creates a very compact “facing” and a short travel distance is created alongside all products.
Save up to 50% of the travel distance by shortening the route.
Reduced picking time
The product is always at the front of the rack, directly in arm’s reach of the order picker. Therefore the product is a quick grab and an out-of-stock situation is instantly noticed.
A clear lane distribution, only one package per article is visible.
This decreases the chance of picking the wrong product.
This can save significant costs spent on quality control and on handling your returns.
Especially when your customer ends up with the wrong order.

The stock is placed in a row right behind each other in (deep) lanes.
