USL Medical Supplies - Auckland, New Zealand
USL Medical is a fast-growing company, determined to become a world-class supplier of healthcare products to the New Zealand market.
Their partnership goal with Dyno was to find a way to reduce stress on staff and increase efficiency, (specifically how far they walked to process orders). It also reduced the amount of forklift and order picker trucks in the packing & dispatch areas. This ensured that the staff were kept safe from harm & risk.
We also wanted to refine an often complex packing system that included dealing with both small, fast turn-around, items, and much larger ones. And with companies large and small.
Then there was the ultimate challenge: How best to use the vast warehouse space. In solving this, Dyno also collaborated with Store Pro – who provided the all-important racking systems.
While the conveyor systems, themselves, were relatively simple, understanding the processes was the key to the ultimate success of this project.
"USL Medical supplies both large and small healthcare products to New Zealand healthcare providers and patients.
Our aim is to be the market leader in healthcare distribution.
To achieve this we developed a purpose built warehouse in 2013 which allowed us to design a layout which would give us an increase in productivity and warehouse efficiencies.
Part of the design was to implement a conveyor system which would reduce pickers travel time.
We chose Dyno for the conveyor design.
From the initial meeting we felt confident that they understood what we wanted to achieve.
The sales consultant was very professional in his dealing with us and never once tried to over complicate the design.
The project was delivered on time and the implementation of the conveyor was seamless.
We have achieved the results that we were aiming for.
If in the future we decide to extend the conveyor, we will definitely use Dyno to take care of our conveyor requirements."
