    Byrne Dairy Success Story by the numbers

    CHALLENGE: EFFICIENCY WITH GROWTH

    To keep up with growth, Byrne Dairy looked for efficiencies at its central cold storage distribution center, Syracuse Cold Storage. This 100,000-square-foot facility boasted 9,000 pallet positions with 16 loading docks. The company wanted to learn more about equipment and operations that could improve material handling processes and material flow at the warehouse. Byrne Dairy turned to Pengate Handling Systems, Inc., an authorized Raymond Sales and Service Center, to help evaluate its operations.

    SOLUTION: ADVANCED SYSTEMS AND FLEET

    In evaluating opportunities to improve efficiencies, the companies focused on the pallet racking systems and lift truck fleet at the cold storage facility, including product putaways and orderpicking, among other areas. Ultimately, the facility layout was upgraded to include a new, three-deep push-back pallet racking system to maximize use of space. Along with these updates, the company introduced a cold storage-equipped lift truck fleet for efficiency, including Raymond 8400 pallet jacks and 7500 reach trucks.

    RESULTS: EFFICIENCY AND PRODUCTIVITY

    Increased uptime — the upgraded lift truck fleet made an immediate impact with a laser-guidance system, which eliminates downtime for operators, and Raymond’s exclusive ACR System™, which requires fewer battery charges. It allows operators to move more pallets per charge, which helped move Byrne Dairy's Syracuse Cold Storage facility one step closer to meeting its goal of increased uptime and improved productivity.
