Hytrol. We Know Conveyor.
Book Publisher Quickly Streamlines Distribution With Hytrol Conveyors
Book Publishing "During the course of this project we developed an excellent working relationship with both our Integration Partner and Hytrol. That was a key factor in our completing the work within such a tight time frame."
- Director of Operations

Case Study Focus: Packaging And Shipping Sortation System. Key System Solutions: Warehouse Consolidation, WCS Interface. Product Handled: Books.

This packaging & fulfillment company needed to consolidate its shipping operations from four separate locations to one streamlined facility close to where a large portion of its books are printed. The changeover to a new building and new system needed to take place in a considerably short amount of time. With the help of their packaging and fulfillment company and a Hytrol Integration Partner the conveyor system, including design, engineering, computer controls, equipment set-up and testing was accomplished in a 16-week period.

Seamless Integration

Book Distribution

The modern distribution center incorporates a wide range of Hytrol conveyor equipment – all seamlessly integrated to maximize throughput and flexibility. The equipment includes belt conveyors, live rollers, and accumulating units with Hytrol's exclusive EZ Logic feature. Both skatewheel and roller gravity units are used extensively throughout. Sorters are strategically engineered into the system. And a series of overhead trash takeaway conveyors helps keep the 262,000 square-feet facility neat and clean.

Capacity for Expansion

The center now is handling more than 150,000 books a day on average — a level that has exceeded expectations. "In the first year of operation, we have already more than doubled what they thought this facility would do."

As business continues to grow, the distribution center is well positioned to grow with it. The facility was designed to readily accommodate additional storage areas and shipping lanes. And the sorters have the capacity to handle a significant increase in order volume.

A quick start-up, seamless integration of equipment and systems, capacity for expansion... these qualities of the distribution center are keeping the packaging & fulfillment company on a steady growth path.
