  • 15% of labour hours are spent moving product from 'A' to 'B'?
  • 20% of labour hours are spent walking or riding around your warehouse?
  • 90% of the time between retrieval and despatch your customer orders sit un-attended on your warehouse floor?
  • Powered conveyors are 400% more energy-efficient than forklifts? 'and you dont need drivers!'
  • Your pick list document design determines labour efficiency?
