http://www.sdi.systems THE CHALLENGE In 2008, Abercrombie and Fitch had two separate Distribution Centers with Put-To-Light systems, which were no longer as efficient as they once were. A&F started to reevaluate its volume, efficiency and footprint, and decided to consolidate all of the retail operations into one building. The UPH was in the low to mid 400s, while the packing function was in the mid 500s. The two DCs had to be consolidated into one 800,000 sq. ft. Distribution Center, the speed had to be improved, and it had to be able to handle peak volumes. THE SOLUTION After evaluating A&F’s needs and budget, it was decided that the best solution would be to install a SORTRAK Bombay sorter. While the option of bringing in two sorters was discussed, it was decided that one sorter that could sort to all store locations was the best solution for A&F. Overall department productivity almost doubled– going from low 400 UPH to mid 700 UPH, as well as the packing function productivity– going from mid 500s to low 1,000s.
