According to John Murdoch, Alfacon Solutions CEO, the most efficient mindset when considering a conveyor system is to be sure the system is designed with specific characteristics starting with the ease of adaptability to changing needs
While seeming rhetorical, the conveyor system must be operationally safe and reliable. The conveyor solution must require minimal maintenance and cost effective to operate. Too often conveyors are relegated as non-value-added equipment that does little more than move product through a warehouse or distribution center. Conveyors must not be the last elements considered in the process planning cycle, but rather the first.
Scalability of a conveyor system is required whether the strategic planning process is short-term or long-term. Selecting conveyors that facilitate growth and adaptability to change over time is essential in omni-channel, ecommerce, 3PLs, and other FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) warehouses. Accounting for an extensive range of product types and sizes will generate increased throughput over time. The system should be capable of being “extended” and/or reconfigured as needed to adapt to future needs and requirements.
