Flowtechnology UK Scales the Heights with Kardex’s Shuttle XP

Flowtechnology UK Scales the Heights with Kardex’s Shuttle XP

Thanks to their investment in Kardex storage solutions, Flowtechnology UK (FTUK) provide customers with a quality service.

The company originally invested in 13 Shuttle XP systems, but then later purchased a further 3 in order to keep up with customer demand and productivity.

According to Marc Borland, Logistics Director at FTUK: “We realised that after the addition of new products for the next catalogue, space would become a problem and in 2001 our original 20,000 ft2 warehouse was expanded by a further 40,000 ft2.” Phase 1 started with five 12 m high Shuttle XPs being installed. FTUK chose bespoke tote boxes for the components and loading commenced.

Together, this new technology allowed for simpler auditing, and a more accurate picking rate which is now greater than 99% (which is based on an error rate of just 0.21%).

The company is now looking to invest in conveyor systems, and enhanced inspection and packaging bays with touch screens and scales.
