While conveyor systems can help you create warehouse efficiency and optimize operations, they are both a major investment and a serious decision. You want the best equipment you can buy for your money, so it’s important to factor in considerations such as the Total Cost of Ownership to determine how you can maximize the investment over the long term.

To ensure you get the most out of your conveyor system now and in the future, it’s also important to allow adequate time for testing prior to getting the new system up and running.

So how do you test your conveyor for performance? Follow this 5-step checklist.
