    CHALLENGE: OPTIMIZING SPACE

    For Zanders Sporting Goods, located in Sparta, Ill., material handling solutions have played a key role in the company’s ability to maintain positive relationships with its U.S. firearms dealers.

    In an effort to streamline its material handling operations and better accommodate increased product demand from its dealers, Zanders consolidated a number of its facilities into one location in 2010. It also implemented narrow aisles to increase its storage capacity, so the company needed to re-evaluate its lift truck fleet and how it moved products throughout the warehouse.

    SOLUTION: EFFICIENT WAREHOUSE SOLUTION

    With goals of shipping orders out faster, reducing product damage and decreasing the number of times products are handled, the company began working with Heubel Material Handling, Inc., an authorized Raymond Sales and Service Center.

    With the help of Heubel, Zanders was able to save space by implementing an integrated carousel system, a fleet of Raymond ReNewed electric lift trucks and a wire guidance system for lift trucks in its very narrow aisles.

  • RESULT: DELIVERING PRODUCTS AT A FASTER RATE

    Zanders incorporated a comprehensive maintenance plan through Heubel that provides a certified service technician who handles equipment issues and performs scheduled maintenance.

    Since the implementation of its Raymond fleet, the company has noted increased productivity levels by as much as 40 percent, decreased downtime, a more streamlined maintenance process and reductions in product damage.
