Ace Endico Improves Productivity and Accuracy with Lucas
To support growth, Ace Endico needed a solution to help their workforce pick more cases in the same number of hours and load trucks more efficiently. “The main things we needed were better productivity and accuracy and an easier, faster way to get new employees up to standard,” says Murray Hertzberg, President of Ace Endico. After researching a variety of solutions, Hertzberg and his management team felt Lucas addressed the accuracy, productivity and training challenges, in addition to improving safety for workers.
About Ace Endico
Ace Endico is a growing regional foodservice distributor in New York State. With growth comes the challenge to maintain and improve service while shipping larger volumes from the same physical space.
“Our case picking rates were about 135-145 cases per hour in the old system and now it is about 180, which is a greater than 25 percent increase in productivity. In addition, selection errors were reduced by 44% within months of implementation. We have improved the productivity and quality of life for selectors.”
