  3. 3. Optimized Distribution System “Thinks” While Workers Work • Pick document based upon allocations per store with the pick position at the Origin CFS. • Cartons are then picked and brought back to centralized packing area.
  4. 4. Optimized Distribution System “Thinks” While Workers Work • Shipping cartons are built based on need. • Cartons sorted based on packing the cartons. • Packer scans the barcode on the pick document.
  5. 5. Optimized Distribution System “Thinks” While Workers Work • System shows the packer the cartons to pack and how to pack them. • Packer scans the carton license plate and places it into the shipping carton.

  7. 7. Optimized Distribution Project System “Thinks” While Workers Work
  8. 8. Optimized Distribution Project System “Thinks” While Workers Work • The process continues until the carton is completed. A packing list is then printed and inserted.
  9. 9. Optimized Distribution System “Thinks” While Workers Work • Once the carton is packed, it will be cut down if needed. • This reduces the cubic dimensions and the dim weight.
  10. 10. Optimized Distribution System “Thinks” While Workers Work • Packer closes the carton in the system. • System prints out a CFS license plate that will be used to scan the package into the container, and a parcel shipping label. • The carton is sealed, labeled and ready to be shipped.

  13. 13. Results of Optimization • 40% freight savings when compared to delivering individual packages • 50% corrugated savings as compared to manual packing without optimization • Fewer packages per order means less labor to the store receiving the shipment and merchandise arriving together
  14. 14. D/C Bypass and LMA (last minute allocating) • Serialize all cartons in the container at origin • Delay allocating where the cartons are to be delivered • Just prior to stripping the container at destination, allocate the cargo in the container • As the cargo is stripped, the origin barcodes are scanned • Each time a carton is scanned a delivery label is printed and applied to the carton • Cartons are then handed off to the small parcel carrier for final delivery or directed to a zone skip trailer.
