H&B Supplies is a wholesale supplier of perfumes and cosmetics and operates from a large office and warehouse based in Cardiff. A client of Switchplane for many years, they asked us to redesign their warehouse and inventory management application, with a view to improving the efficiency of the order picking operation.
There were two problems to solve. Firstly, the separation between "pallet drop" and "shelf" locations. Pickers would be held up when an item of stock was only in pallet drop, as this would require a forklift operation to move stock to a shelf location.
