“Pre-stamping” cigarette inventory saves picking labor, but costs a fortune in terms of space and inventory carrying costs.
“Post-stamping” saves all of the space and carrying costs, because there is only one, unstamped inventory. But, it also makes the select-stamp-ship process very labor intensive. Until SmokePick®, that is!
Because SmokePick® achieves the labor productivity rate similar to a “pre-stamp” application AND an inventory cost that is similar to a “post-stamp” application. In addition, SmokePick® delivers an accuracy rate that is superior to either “pre-stamp” or “post-stamp” applications, exceeding 99.99% and typically 100%. If there is an error, the system will know exactly who made the error and when.
Historically, “pre-stamp” applications have required fewer stamping machines than “post-stamp” applications because of the higher stamp rate at which “pre-stamp” applications achieve. SmokePick® achieves an average of more than 3000 cartons per hour. Enough said.
In summary, SmokePick® is the best-of-breed solution for lean distribution of cigarette products. Through the use of high-speed sortation, put-to-light technology, robust controls, and integration of all facets of the cigarette product life cycle, SmokePick® enables high product velocity and throughput with amazingly low labor requirements.
