Challenge: A fast-growing D2C medical apparel company experienced significant growth in ecommerce order volume as well as dramatic spikes due to promotional activity.
Solution: To help the apparel company accommodate increased demand and unpredictable volume, Saddle Creek Logistics Services deployed a fleet of autonomous mobile robots to support its order fulfillment operations. The AMRs enabled associates to pick orders more efficiently and accurately while significantly reducing time spent walking in the warehouse.
Results: Saddle Creek’s AMR solution not only increased productivity, but also reduced labor needs and operational costs. In the first year alone, Saddle Creek handled almost three times the previous order volume without adding additional associates – an especially valuable accomplishment given the tight labor market. The apparel company was extremely pleased with the efficiency gains, and Saddle Creek has since expanded the operational footprint and nearly doubled the number of robots in use.
About the Solution Provider: Saddle Creek Logistics Services custom engineers warehousing and fulfillment solutions to help retailers and brands deliver an outstanding customer experience. Thanks to a wide range of capabilities, nationwide distribution network, and state-of-the-art automation and robotics, Saddle Creek can drive peak performance and readily scale for growth.
