The Role of Modular Conveyors in Modern Fulfilment

 

In the dynamic industry of modern fulfilment, modular conveyors have emerged as a cornerstone technology, streamlining operations in logistics and distribution centres. These systems are designed for adaptability and scalability, essential in an industry where demands and layouts can change rapidly.

What are Modular Conveyors?

 

Modular conveyors also known as conveyor modules are versatile and flexible systems composed of various interlocking sections. These sections can be easily added, removed, or rearranged, allowing the conveyor system to adapt to different operational needs or physical spaces. This flexibility is vital in fulfilment centres where the layout might need to change due to seasonal demands, shifting inventory, or expansion.

 

Importance in Logistics

 

The role of modular conveyors in logistics cannot be overstated. They provide a critical solution for efficiently moving products through various stages of processing – from receiving and sorting to packaging and shipping. By enhancing material flow, these conveyors reduce manual handling, minimise errors, and speed up processing times, directly impacting productivity and operational efficiency.

L-A-C Logistics Automation’s modular conveyors stand out in the sector for their innovative design and robust functionality. Our systems are engineered for maximum flexibility and durability, ensuring they can meet the diverse needs of busy fulfilment centres. With an emphasis on easy integration and user-friendly operation, our conveyors are not just a part of your logistics operations; they are a strategic asset that enhances overall efficiency and adaptability.

 

Through these advanced modular conveyor systems, L-A-C Logistics Automation demonstrates its commitment to providing solutions that are not just in step with the industry’s demands but are also shaping the future of logistics efficiency.

 

Customisation and Flexibility

 

Today’s fast-paced fulfilment centres need the ability to customise and adapt is crucial. L-A-C Logistics Automation understands this need and offers modular conveyors that are not just efficient but highly customisable to suit various operational demands.

 

Customisable Nature of L-A-C’s Modular Conveyors

 

Our conveyor modules are designed with customisation at their core. This flexibility allows for adjustments in length, width, and even the path they follow. Depending on the specific requirements of a fulfilment centre, these conveyors can be configured in numerous ways – from straight lines to curves, inclines, or declines. This adaptability extends to the speed and type of conveyor belt used, ensuring that each system can handle the specific types of goods moving through a centre.

 

Real-World Applications and Adaptations

 

In our collaboration with Evri, L-A-C Logistics Automation significantly improved the parcel carrier’s sortation capacity and efficiency. By customising their conveyor system and implementing conveyor modules, Evri achieved a threefold increase in sortation capacity, 99.9% accuracy in sorting, and a 50% reduction in labour costs.

 

The system was specifically designed to handle small-sized parcels, which were previously challenging to process. This adaptation showcases how L-A-C’s modular conveyors can be tailored to address unique challenges, leading to substantial improvements in operational efficiency.

 

Evri’s case study illustrates the effectiveness of L-A-C Logistics Automation’s conveyors in enhancing the productivity and scalability of fulfilment centres, adapting seamlessly to evolving business needs and space constraints.
