)-- Dotcom Distribution is a strategic eCommerce logistics partner focused on serving B2B and B2C multi-channel operations through statement packaging, fast fulfillment and freight management services. Hytrol Conveyor and the integration partner, Conveyor Handling Company, collaborated to produce an automated material handling system capable of meeting the customer’s current business needs, while also allowing for future growth. The new system accommodates increased capacity, accuracy, and speed, while creating a significant reduction in labor. Hytrol-produced video demonstrates the results of the partnership.
Located in Edison, NJ, their facility provides same-day shipping for most clients with an accuracy rate of 99.5%. With a versatile material handling system, their facility handles a wide range of products, from electronics to healthcare products to clothing and pet supplies. Dotcom Distribution is a company focused on building trust through flawless order fulfillment, transportation expertise, and long-lasting relationships.
Nicholas Pendrous, CIO of Dotcom Distribution, said, “We created a very good and trusting relationship with our integration partner. They presented to us a proposal with Hytrol equipment and obviously, that’s a very well-known and recognized brand in the industry. Due to our relationship with our integration partner and based on their recommendation, that was the plan we ultimately chose.”
“Similar to the way we do business, we look for a relationship that we can trust, and we found that during the bidding process,” Pendrous said. “We built an open dialogue and a trusting relationship with our integration partner. Their proximity helped during the planning and implementation stages of the project.”
The system incorporates many unique applications of Hytrol equipment. A prime example is the use of E24™ and EZLogic® to pull a gap between products prior to entering the scanning station. This customized process allows the system an energy-efficient and simplified means for accumulation.
Hytrol’s material handling system integrates seamlessly with the customer’s warehouse management system, shipping sorter, and PLC-based control system. Prior to implementation, the customer was limited by proprietary software, which restricted throughput capacity and future system development.
