One forklift operator can fill orders at an average speed of 1,250 cases per hour. It would take the average warehouse worker five hours to pick the same amount of cases manually. Layer pickers increase the speed of pallet production without adding labor by efficiently forming a full pallet of mixed layers consisting of various products, a task that traditionally could only be performed manually.
By decreasing the number of people needed to do the work and reducing the physical labor involved, the layer picker is a cost-effective way to handle single or multiple layers of a variety of SKUs. No more picking and packing by hand. In addition to being more efficient, the layer picker also offers more load security because it clamps the loads from all four sides, increasing speed and minimizing loss.
Beverage warehouses and distribution facilities can benefit from the speed and versatility that layer pickers have to offer. Illinois Material Handling has attachments suited for any application.
