FEATURED NEWS


Lightning Pick customer Capacity LLC, a 3PL specializing in e-commerce and omni-channel order fulfillment, shares details of successful automation installation in Modern Materials Handling.

In “Retailers use 3PLs to chase Amazon,” a feature story in the October 2017 issue, Modern Materials Handling magazine examines how the pressure to keep up with same-day/next-day delivery customer service commitments has forced smaller e-commerce and omni-channel retailers to seek order fulfillment help from third-party logistics and fulfillment (3PL) service providers.

Among the companies featured is Lightning Pick customer Capacity LLC, who implemented the brand’s semi-automated solutions to increase both throughput and accuracy while serving the needs of multiple customers. In the article, Capacity’s Chief Strategy Officer Thom Campbell explains how Lightning Pick’s mobile pick-to-light carts for batch picking and dual-sided put-to-light put walls for sorting items into orders prior to pack out have helped the company deliver better picking speed, accuracy and throughput with fewer touches.

“With paper picking, we had six eyes on each order: a picker, a packer and a quality control supervisor who confirmed the right units were picked,” he says.

Post-installation, Capacity’s associates now handle 12,000-plus orders in a normal shift—an increase over their previous rate of 2,500. “On a maximum throughput day, working shifts around the clock, we get as many as 1,000 e-commerce orders through the put wall in any given hour,” says Campbell, who added the system’s high accuracy also eliminated visual checks of each order, saving time.

In 1850, John Dixon Matthews emigrated from Sheffield, England to open a small engraving shop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He became a pre-eminent provider of high-quality identification products and services, including stamping dies, branding irons, ornate engravings and stamps for wooden crates. His company flourished, converting from a partnership to a corporation in 1902.

The corporation’s growth continued throughout the 20th century. As service offerings diversified, the company separated itself into different operating units, including Memorialization Products, Graphics Imaging and Marking Products. With the addition of several best-of-breed automation and fulfillment brands, the industrial printing and marking solutions the company provided through its Marking Products segment has evolved into Matthews Automation Solutions.
