Labor Saving Technologies for Warehouse Operations

Dec. 6, 2022
Watch this video to learn how Rainbow Resource dramatically increased daily order fulfillment throughput—with less staff—through the help of Numina Group’s warehouse design services and a warehouse automation solution tailored to its operations.

When surging sales growth outstripped Rainbow’s ability to keep up with larger daily order volumes, the company engaged Numina to review its current operations and recommend warehouse automation technology that solved its current challenges and scale up for future growth.

Numina conducted a warehouse engineering design study and created a plan to automate the pick, pack, and ship process. Rainbow implemented Numina’s RDS Real-Time Distribution Warehouse Execution and Control System (an NED Innovation Award Finalist) and other warehouse technologies to optimize order release planning and automate its pick, pack, and ship processes.

With Numina’s recommendations and automated warehouse system, Rainbow has achieved:

  • 50% productivity increase with a faster order-to-shipment process
  • Reduced labor costs
  • Elimination of bottlenecks
  • 99.9% order accuracy
  • Automated order quality control lane
  • Real-time labor management data
  • Real-time order processing visibility

Rainbow Resources has achieved its goals of improving productivity, controlling labor costs, and enhancing its ability to serve its customers, which is the company’s most important goal in investing in warehouse automation.
