Lightning Pick Video Case Study - GEAR For Sports

GEAR For Sports uses Pick to Light, RF Picking, Container Routing and other Lightning Pick Solutions to Optimize their new Distribution Center

GEAR FOR SPORTS has become the leader in custom decorated apparel and sportswear. Over the past 30 years the GEAR FOR SPORTS family of brands has grown to include GEAR FOR SPORTS, Champion, Robert Trent Jones Apparel and Under Armour.

GEAR wanted to improve the overall efficiency of their production operation by applying lean principals to their manufacturing and distribution processes. The goal was to improve the efficiency of their labor, improve productivity and maintain the highest quality standards for their products.

The Solution

To accomplish this, they first consolidated 5 seperate warehouses into one new distribution center in Lenexa KS. The new facility was designed by the Siggins Company (North Kansas City, MO - phone: 816-421-7670, www.siggins.net), a full service material handling designer and supplier to the manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution industries.

The sophisticated design included narrow aisle storage, conveyors, a pop-up sorter, and a two-story pick module featuring 3,000 Pick to Light (PTL) light modules supplied by Lightning Pick Technologies
(Germantown, WI - 262-251-2100, www.lightningpick.com

Lightning Pick designed a cost-effective system that optimizes the DC’s fulfillment based on pick frequency. Supervisors can monitor picking activity and order status in real time through Lightning Pick PC stations located throughout the facility. Fast movers are selected with the LP Pick system from flow racks. Lights direct the picking of items into order totes that are then placed onto a conveyor. Slower movers are selected from shelving using radio frequency terminals via the integrated Lightning Pick RF Picking module.

In addition to the picking software, Lightning Pick provided extended applications to serve as middleware between the facility’s Oracle
ERP and individual machine controls. LP Messenger controls the weighing, manifesting, labeling and shipping systems, while LP Convey
interfaces with the conveyor controls.
