Some Advantages of Bakery Warehouse Automation
In the coming years, the global market for bakery products is expected to reach great heights. To meet rising demand, businesses must turn to automation.
Fremont, CA: Warehouse automation has is being used in a rising number of bakeries in today's fast-paced world of technology and efficiency, and it's easy to see why. Bakeries face challenges in managing their inventory's short shelf-life and SKU complexity, but with the help of warehouse automation, product flow is optimized to fulfill expanding client demand successfully. Warehouse automation is a long-term solution that may help businesses satisfy present demand while also positioning themselves for growth in the future.
Advantages of bakery warehouse automation:Better inventory management
SKU complexity is one issue that bakeries encounter. There are many distinct SKUs to organize and maintain because there is a strong demand for extensive product variation. When it comes to categorizing SKUs based on their relative inventory characteristics, warehouse automation can help to streamline processes and give flexibility. In addition to increasing storage density and expediting the outbound order fulfillment process, warehouse automation keeps track of all products and offers real-time inventory control.
Bakeries and food producers face challenges in maximizing warehouse space use, particularly in refrigerated and frozen warehouse environments. Every square foot counts when storing inventory in a freezing climate. Freezers are expensive to operate, and the severe working conditions necessitate frequent entry and leave. Maximizing storage density is critical for lowering these expenses. Manufacturers can optimize current warehouses and reduce the need for expensive new construction by using a high-density, multiple-deep AS/RS.
Improved safety and fewer labor risks
It's no secret that the human body is not meant to perform in sub-zero temperatures, and operating in these conditions for extended periods of time can be hazardous. It's dangerous not only for the workers but also for the warehouse business as a whole. With workers taking regular warm-up breaks and the need to move products out of the freezer and into a more conducive environment for picking, inefficiencies in time, labor, and energy usage become apparent quickly. Furthermore, firms frequently suffer with worker availability in these types of work situations. An AS/RS can help to overcome many of these challenges by automating product transportation to and from the warehouse, reducing labor in these hostile warehouse settings.
