Case Study: Boots.com

Boots.com has deployed a TGW carton transport and sorting system that links the delivery packing stations with the dispatch area at its Birmingham hub. The packing area where the goods are prepared for dispatch comprises four groups of 12 packing benches, each of which is positioned adjacent to a transport conveyor. Both conveyor lines are able to handle 2,000 cartons per hour. The identical lines are positioned side by side with a divert belt device that can redirect cartons from one line to the other to eliminate downtime. Boots.com has increased packing productivity by 48 per cent.
