New Eskay Unit Load Allows Rack-Side Picking For Less Than Full Pallets, Throughput Up To 70 Pallets Per Hour



SALT LAKE CITY - Designed to handle a variety of order volumes and frequencies, ESKAY's latest unit load system features rack-side workstations for picking less than full pallets of hot items. The system is 45% faster than a conventional unit load, boosting throughput to as many as 70 pallets per hour. Product information is available by calling 800-253-1003 or online at www.eskay.com.

"The trend to smaller, more frequent orders means more customers are ordering in case quantities," said Kevin Thuet, ESKAY's Director of Advanced Applications. "The rack-side workstations make those cases readily available while still supporting input and output of pallet-size loads."

The unit load workstations can be equipped with pick-to-light systems or RF terminals to support paperless order picking and real-time inventory control. The unit load can automatically replenish the pick station or replace one set of SKUs with another for different sets of customers or pick waves. High-density storage with a low first-tier height takes advantage of available vertical space while maintaining a compact footprint. Variable acceleration rates ensure the fastest speeds possible while maintaining load stability. As with all ESKAY unit load systems, it is also extremely quiet, operating at less than 65 dB.
