Rensick Reduces Labor Costs 30 Percent With Lucas

Resnick used RF applications for receiving, replenishment and other tasks, but order picking was still a manual, paper-based process. Given the wide range of products Resnick distributes, the 100,000 square foot DC in New Brunswick, N.J. has a number of different picking areas with different process types which created unique challenges in streamlining end-to-end fulfillment operations. In an effort to increase efficiency and throughput, Resnick reconfigured their forward pick areas and implemented Lucas to improve and optimize their hands-on processes.
