Capacity Partners with Lightning Pick for a Brighter Fulfillment Solution

NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. -- Capacity LLC, trusted leaders in order fulfillment, e-commerce, and electronic data interchange (EDI), has partnered with Wisconsin-based automation experts Lightning Pick to bring a new fulfillment solution to clients.

As the fulfillment partner of choice for household names and global brands, Capacity handles thousands of ecommerce orders every hour. Having passed the 10 million order mark in 2016 - and with a view to managing future demand - Capacity's leadership team chose to invest in Lightning Pick's "Pick-to-Light Cart/Put-to-Light" system. By combining scan-and-pick carts with put walls, this tailored e-commerce solution maximizes Capacity's speed and accuracy for its ecommerce clients.

"With the newly installed system we are scanning each unit twice, all but eliminating our error rates," says Thom Campbell, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Founder of Capacity LLC. "We are just beginning to mine the data surrounding our productivity but on a maximum throughput day, when we are working shifts around the clock, we are getting as many as 1,000 e-commerce orders through the put wall in any given hour."

The decision to implement light-directed order picking technologies is already paying off for Capacity, and its clients. Fulfillment teams using the new system report a marked increase in throughput from 2,500 orders per day (for a top client) to 12,000 orders per normal work day and more during extended shifts. The availability of real-time productivity data and minimal training required to use the system are additional benefits that enhance Capacity's comprehensive fulfillment solution for clients.

With the new solution installed and another peak season on the horizon, the Capacity team is excited to put the Lightning Pick system through its paces during the busiest time of year. Meeting the latest surge in customer demand is a challenge every year. Partnering with Lightning Pick, Capacity is better prepared than ever to deliver the goods.
