Loading and unloading cargo on the warehouse dock is one of the most labor-intensive tasks in any facility. These jobs are subject to extreme temperatures and expose staff to the risk of repetitive stress injury from constant lifting and twisting, making the process of finding and retaining staff an ongoing challenge.
Solving the challenges of loading and unloading requires a multifaceted approach, one that considers lightly automated ergonomic assistance all the way to cutting-edge technology in pursuit of complete automation. MHS has the process expertise and integration experience to not only assemble the right mix of technology for loading and unloading tasks but engineer them as part of high-functioning, integrated systems, capable of optimizing critical warehouse processes.
These processes include receiving, returns processing, cross-docking, palletizing/depalletizing, packing, and shipping, each of which come with an opportunity to optimize labor and product flow in and out of the building.
Unload product from shipping containers or trailers and feed them to downstream processes.
Directly connect inbound and freight to outbound processes.
Send prepared orders out the dock door and load them into shipping containers or trailers.
Direct returned items from the receiving dock back to storage quickly and efficiently.
