  • Combine full pallet, layer and case picking depending on your needs
  • Reduce costs and increase inventory accuracy
  • Improve delivery times
  • Facilitate quick truck turns at the loading dock
  • Optimize material flow
  • High-volume FIFO/LIFO rotation
  • Promote workplace safety keeping employees out of the deep freeze environment
