Case Study – Manual handling small items a thing of the past

Companies operating with manual handling systems for large quantities of small items can now overhaul their systems with the help of ICA. Turnkey solutions allow companies to modernise processes without undergoing a costly relocation. 

ICA has designed, manufactured and installed turnkey systems for product importers whose plants process a number of small items in bulk. Some solutions involve many thousands of SKUs, in which every product was handled up to six times before it was ready for dispatch under the existing setup. This type of multi-handling costs businesses a lot of time and money and keeps efficiency low, so a complete revamp is expected to convert a low productivity operation into a high efficiency process. 

ICA’s turnkey systems are designed to suit the existing space and requirements of the business, and are configured to fit in the existing warehouse with minimal disruption and no need for relocation or building a new warehouse. ICA reduces the need for extra floor space by mounting the materials handling system within the ceiling space, reducing obstacles on the floor and increasing safety. By developing the system from start to finish and testing within its own factories, ICA is able to commission and complete a turnkey materials handling system very quickly.
