Engineered Systems Integration for Distribution Centers
UNARCO’s pick modules comprise some of the most highly engineered rack systems in the country. UNARCO has worked with integrators to engineer massive distribution centers where dynamic pallet rack systems support miles of conveyor and SKU movements from pallet to carton to piece.
Integration includes Carton Flow, Push Back Rack and Pallet Flow, as well as other storage solution ideas all woven together for optimal warehouse efficiency. Pick Module engineered designs flow product from the receiving door at a distribution center to the shipping door with order-picking accuracy. The pick module allows for reduced levels of material handling because each platform becomes a multilevel order fulfillment center.
The multi-level platform uses gravity and dynamic pallet rack systems within the pick module to move product easily to the picking position from the broken pallet and onto miles of conveyor and sortation systems. UNARCO’s pallet racking supports hundreds of thousands of feet of conveyor and sortation devices within the pick module, allowing product to flow through to shipment from the distribution center. Each level becomes its own concentrated work center within the pick module, and each conveyor lane sends product to the next stage or warehouse operation.
UNARCO has worked with nearly every integrator, consultant, or conveyor manufacturer in the U.S. to integrate the pallet rack of pick modules into efficient order fulfillment operations. No other pallet rack company has as much experience with Pick Module installations to help increase picking efficiency and keep product flowing through a system.
Pick Modules bring many material-handling products together to integrate and speed up the flow of product through the distribution center. Some Pick Module applications include:
The benefits of Pick Module system integration allow your distribution center to flow, as product starts on a pallet and is split into cases, then individual pieces. The integration of Pallet Flow, Carton Flow, and Push Back Racks into conveyor lanes lets gravity and mechanized conveyors transport product effectively and keep inventory accurate and worker movement to a minimum. A well-organized pick module will increase profits by decreasing labor costs.

Integration with All Material Handling Components
The details and components of a Pick Module are vast, and the complicated integration should be left to a company with more multi-level distribution experience and affiliations than anyone else in the material-handling industry.
