Save-A-Lot, the extreme discount grocer, depends on its distribution centers to serve more than 1,300 stores nationwide. Those Save-A-Lot distribution centers depend on Camcode for durable Warehouse Adhesive Floor Labels that make it easier to move products in and out of the facilities.
With a very high volume of product moving from floor locations, not standard racks, Save-A-Lot needed a durable identification method that would stand up to forklift traffic on the distribution center floors. Save-A-Lot had tried different methods to identify its floor locations, including scarab machines, paint and temporary labels. Each method failed to hold up. In addition, these methods required additional hours of labor when re-marking was needed twice a year.
Looking for a more efficient solution, Save-A-Lot found Camcode’s Warehouse Adhesive Floor Labels.
The Floor Labels consist of a Metalphoto® aluminum bar code label that is protected by a beveled aluminum frame with specially-formulated adhesive that easily adheres to a prepared floor area. The frame shields the bar code label from the abuse of pallets and vehicular traffic.
“Typical warehouse operations tore the paint on the floor, which only lasted a couple of months,” said Eric Somheil, Save-A-Lot Distribution Technology Manager. “Our forklift operators weren’t able to use scanners and had to manually enter identification numbers.”
With Camcode’s Warehouse Adhesive Floor Labels, Save-A-Lot improved labor efficiency and created more effective operations. “Camcode’s floor labels stay in place and allow operators to enter data automatically and more efficiently,” said Somheil. To date, Save-A-Lot has installed the floor labels in 16 distribution centers and plans to use them in the remaining centers.
“It’s all about efficiency,” Somheil said. “The floor labels are working very well, and we hope to eliminate all previous labor spending on re-labeling and maintenance.”
