Hosted by Derek Rickard, Cimcorp’s distribution systems manager, and Aaron Corcoran, Westfalia account executive, the webinar will discuss current industry trends that lead to a need for automation in warehouse storage and picking. Next, Rickard and Corcoran will detail the components of an AS/RS and an automated layer picking solution to help attendees better understand how they work together to increase productivity and accuracy. After covering key pre-implementation considerations, Rickard and Corcoran will show how to obtain ROI from both solutions by better utilizing warehouse space, reducing dock staging and providing greater customer satisfaction.

“The growing number of SKUs, limited warehouse space and availability of labor make order fulfillment one of the most complex and challenging warehousing functions today,” said Aaron Corcoran, account executive, Westfalia Technologies. “Automation technology in the form of a tightly integrated AS/RS and layer picking system is proving one of the most effective and powerful options for overcoming these challenges and setting companies up future growth.”
