Receiving in a manufacturing environment is an overlooked process area that can be the start of numerous bottlenecks, accuracy errors and wasted motion.
For example, let's look at inbound labeling. Most facilities will print labels for incoming shipments in a central location (often several hundred feet from the receiving dock). Staff must retrieve the labels, carry back to the receiving dock, and try to ensure labels are accurately applied to the correct pallet, box, etc.
Over the course of a year, this walking alone can cost a facility thousands of dollars in wasted labor. Watch below how Cinetics Landis eliminates bottleneck in receiving and reduces labor by 60%.
