Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler profiled how Park City, Utah-based Backcountry.com modernized their distribution system with the help of Hytrol and their integration partner, Hoj Engineering, makers of WarehouseOS. The partnership was featured in the recent issue of Robotics and Automation News.
Jeff Carter, senior vice-president of global fulfillment at Backcountry.com shared, “Around the time we started building the WMS, I began working with Mark Westover at Hoj Engineering and Sales (a leading systems integrator and integration partner of Hytrol Conveyors) on the racking and conveyor system to make sure the two were compatible and complementary”. When the project started, Backcountry.com had only a small number of SKUs; but today they have more than 500,000 SKUs, with 350,000 on hand at any one time.
