The construction of the Blackmores Campus at Warriewood involved the company bringing its operations under one roof for the first time in over 15 years. Dematic designed Blackmores’ new distribution centre as a flow-through facility, with raw materials feeding through to production, and finished goods back through to storage and distribution. Materials handling was optimised at all stages and the DC was equipped with the latest generation of order picking technologies including RTL’s Voice picking, RF and Pick-to-Light systems.
Blackmores’ full-case picking processes were given a boost with the introduction of a combination of RF and Voice, while the split-case operation benefitted from RapidPick Pick-to-Light alphanumeric displays. Both systems enable fast and accurate paperless picking, giving Blackmores a set of tools with which it can handle goods faster and more accurately.
