UPS Supply Chain Solutions analyzed the Honeywell CPG network and determined that operations at the five distribution centers could be consolidated efficiently into two facilities equipped with advanced logistics technology. These distribution centers optimize the network's service levels and help reduce overall supply chain complexity.
Both distribution centers use sophisticated IT systems and automation that can significantly reduce order cycle time and provide real-time order tracking from order entry to final delivery. An electronic "pick-to-light" system and customized warehouse management system (WMS) guides workers rapidly through high-density inventory areas to fill orders, raising the order accuracy to nearly 100 percent. Electronic eyes and scales monitor the sequence and weight of cartons as they travel on high-speed conveyor belts for automatic sorting to proper pallet locations.
