Alfacon Solutions CEO John Murdoch Advocates Hand-on Approach to Automated Conveyor Solutions

Alfacon Solutions’ CEO John Murdoch utilizes a hands-on approach when analyzing clients’ challenges and developing solutions based on experience and innovation. Murdoch recently shared how unique engineered-to-order automated conveyor solutions are increasingly required across North America. Murdoch discussed this in the recent issue of AutomationMedia.com.

Murdoch explained, “With near full employment in North America the costs of labor in a distribution center is quickly approaching $18 per hour, nearly double from the 2010 rate. At lower wages, it was more difficult to cost-justify the automation expense. Management could throw more labor at the volume issue. Now with much higher labor rates, which does not include health insurance, workers’ compensation, vacation time, and safety concerns, conveyor automation is axiomatic and needed more than ever before.”

Conveyors are a core component of all material handling or automation systems. Conveyors are used to transport, accumulate, and sort packages, boxes, or products. From receiving to order picking and fulfillment; from transportation of product to packing or shipping areas, conveyors are the freeway leading to final shipping sorting and accumulation.

The landscape for automated conveyor systems is changing as distribution changes. Distribution centers are handling more individual items than ever these days. Grocery store chains and big box retailers are receiving mixed-SKU pallets that are designed for specific aisles in a store. Retailers that once received full pallets of product once a week or month are now receiving a few cartons every day.
