Efficiently storing, staging, and sequencing the parcels for shipping can be achieved by implementing logistics solutions. A portable or permanent gravity conveyor can be used for all of these tasks, making it quicker to load trucks.
When products are staged on permanent or portable gravity conveyors, the parcels are sequenced using First In, First Out (FIFO) best practices. This allows workers to stage products to be loaded onto a truck in a specific order. So, the first items loaded on the conveyor and truck would be the driver’s last stop and progress throughout their route. This eliminates searching time at stops and creates the optimal unloading sequence for maximum efficiency.
To further improve efficiency, a pitched gravity conveyor allows workers to load on one end and let gravity do the work of moving the boxes to the end of the dock, allowing them to get more work done more efficiently.
