Yale named to SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain Projects for 2016

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain Projects list comprises the most innovative and transformative projects in the material handling industry.

Yale Materials Handling Corporation

earned its place on the list for its redesigned slotting strategy using specialized lift trucks for Nature’s Best, a wholesaler of natural and organic products.


The Yale® MO25 multi-level order selector and slotting strategy gave Nature’s Best the ability to accommodate more SKUs without increasing its footprint or compromising throughput. Operators were able to increase pick height from six to ten feet and build entire orders often within a single aisle, eliminating unnecessary product touches and travel time. The Yale solution added 33-45 percent more pick positions, decreased operating costs by 25 percent and reduced the amount of required lift trucks and racking. These reductions are expected to save the company $2 million in labor alone over five years.

“Our work with Nature’s Best exemplifies the combination of innovative lift trucks and warehouse expertise Yale delivers to increase efficiency and overall output,” says Chris Murtha, Brand Marketing Manager, Yale Materials Handling Corporation. “This recognition highlights the commitment of Yale and our dealers to understand the unique challenges of each operation and provide creative, comprehensive solutions built around their needs.”

The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects that shows how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence.
