Westfalia to present at Modex 2020

Logistics solutions leader will showcase its complete automated warehouse solutions in booth #7807 and co-present educational seminar.

York, Pa. – February 10, 2020 – Westfalia Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of logistics solutions for manufacturers and distributors since 1992, will be at MODEX 2020 showcasing its complete warehouse automation solution. The solution is comprised of a high-density automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) and layer picking solution, all controlled by Westfalia’s Savanna.NET® Warehouse Execution System (WES).

At Booth 7807 (take an immediate right through the entrance doors), Westfalia will be showcasing its automation solutions and discussing the associated benefits, which include:

  • Maximized storage capacity. The high-density AS/RS enables companies to increase the storage capacity of their existing facilities by up to 50 percent.
  • Increased flexibility. The system’s flexible rack structures can accommodate multiple storage lane depths to handle varying SKU inventory level.
  • Streamlined order fulfillment. The combination of the AS/RS and layer pick system allows companies to seamlessly convey pallets from palletizing to storage and to truck-staging lanes, thereby streamlining the entire order fulfillment process.
  • Improved efficiency. Savanna.NET® improves efficiency and reduces order fulfillment errors by directing all warehouse activities and providing real-time inventory visibility and tracking.

Dan Labell, president, Westfalia Technologies, said, “With the increasing demands from customers, warehouses are now seen as vital components in the supply chain. In today’s market, most companies are seeking state-of-the-art automated warehouse storage solutions. Whether expanding an existing location, opening a new facility, adding more SKUs or products or offering new sales channels, Westfalia is your complete resource for planning, designing, manufacturing and installing material handling systems – without affecting your customers.”

On Wednesday, March 11, Labell will co-present “How to calculate AS/RS ROI: Key metrics that often get overlooked.” Labell is set to join TGW Systems Inc. and Swisslog at 10:30 a.m. in Theater E (back right corner of conference hall). The seminar will look at how to include direct and indirect expenses, along with using sensitivity analysis to understand how different factors can affect the results of the ROI. Real examples and case studies will be used to tackle the topic of building an accurate ROI model by addressing defining what aspects to include in your ROI; comparing conventional fulfillment systems with implementation of an AS/RS solution; and including direct and indirect expenses to achieve an accurate ROI model to help justify investments in automation.
