Three Times Faster

In the massive warehouse, a forklift zips down the box-laden aisle. The driver stops and pulls a box from a pallet to the forklift. The instant the driver is back behind the wheel the lift is off again. This is a scene that is re-enacted millions of times a day in warehouses around the world.



Order fulfillment is probably the most labor-intensive function in any warehouse or distribution center. So, in order to increase efficiency and reduce these labor-intensive costs, it is only natural that companies look for ways to automate this process. ELKO AS, a leading manufacturer of installation equipment, wiring devices and telecommunication products in Norway, wanted to do just that…improve their processes through automation.
