SSI Schaefer's track record of supplying quality products on time and at the right price was the reason Ebuyer returned to them to supply shelf containers.
The headquarters of Ebuyer, the UK's largest independent online technology retailer of consumer technology, had originally used storage containers, destined for use in a commissioner system, on static shelving before their machine was up and running.
After a number of discussions with Chris Parker, leading Plastics Account Manager for SSI Schaefer, an additional supply of standard LTF containers was agreed upon for picking containers.
8500 shelf bins were ordered and supplied in red, in order to indicate the difference between the use for each container. Already in circulation – grey bins for conveyor containers and blue bins for automation totes.
Chris Parker, leading Plastics Account Manager, SSI Schaefer said: “With the machine installed and new containers inserted, the shelves were left container-less, operators and pickers had become used to the containers in pick locations on shelving and the way products were compartmentalised, resulting in reduced picking errors and minimised stock migration, it was decided to reintroduce containers on the shelving.”
SSI Schaefer supply containers for everything, from fish to computer chips, where the demand made on the containers are very varied. For this reason, SSI Schaefer offers over 1,600 different types of containers, made from various plastic materials, anti-corrosive steel, stainless steel or aluminium.
