Hytrol and the integration partner worked diligently with SalSon Logistics to implement an automated material handling system capable of processing the customer’s large volume of product. The conveyor system gives SalSon the ability to deconsolidate five times the amount of product compared to their previous system.
Prior to implementing the Hytrol system, product sorting at SalSon was a manual process. Products were brought into the facility on simple flex conveyor. Labels were then sorted and scanned by hand, and delivered to pallet stations. Because the operation depended on physical labor, the daily output was limited by labor capacity. “Just to put things in perspective, prior to having this automated system we would sort on a huge day about 20,000 cartons," Berritto said. "Today, with the system in full force, we do about 100,000 cartons.”
