Streamlining order fulfilment for a major meal kit provider
Our client, a prominent provider of meal kits, faced the challenge of enhancing the efficiency of their order fulfilment process. As the demand for meal kit delivery services continued to surge, the client needed a solution to expedite the picking and packing of customer orders, ensuring a seamless and accurate operation. Their unique requirement involved packing orders into one of three box sizes, each corresponding to the order’s size.
The CSL Solution
Conveyor Systems Ltd (CSL), a trusted expert in custom solutions, stepped in to design and implement an automation system tailored to the client’s specific needs. The process began with the integration of two Lantech case erectors at the outset of two production lines. These innovative erectors automatically sized boxes according to the order and directed them through motorised roller conveyors onto the correct line. Here, a Weber labeller applied the customer’s address label to each box, ensuring precise delivery.
Next, each box moved into the Pick to Light picking areas, where skilled operatives efficiently assembled each order. Finally, a case sealer sealed the boxes, rendering them ready for despatch.
