Mouser Electronics’ State-of-the-Art Distribution Center Features the World’s Largest Vertical Lift Module Facility
DALLAS & FORT WORTH, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mouser ElectronicsInc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the broadest selection of Semiconductors and Electronic Components™, continues its investment in advanced automation at its global distribution center to increase order processing, accuracy and speed, helping customers further reduce time to market.
This spring of 2022, Mouser will have installed 120 Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs), the largest VLM installation in the world. VLMs are essentially giant vertical filing cabinets, complete with shelves and an automated puller to bring components to the employee’s workstation. This increases efficiency and floor space and can reduce an employee’s walk time by 45% or more.
In addition to the massive VML facility, Mouser’s distribution center includes multiple Ultipack and I-Pack machines – a sophisticated automated system for sealing and labeling shipments that can process up to 14 orders per minute – as well as an OPEX system Perfect Pick for consolidation and an AutoStore system.
“Incorporating the latest in distribution center automation helps us achieve our goal of providing exceptional customer service,” said Pete Shopp, senior vice president of business operations for Mouser Electronics. “The tools and systems we have in place provide another way to help shorten our customers’ time to market.
Mouser’s sprawling Global Fulfillment Center, located on its 78-acre headquarters campus in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, maintains an extensive inventory of over one million unique SKUs for products over 1,200 manufacturer brands. Processing tens of thousands of orders per week – most within 15 minutes – and maintaining a strong commitment to customer service, Mouser employees navigate technological advancements with great success.
Although the adoption of advanced automation primarily acts as a means to increase efficiency, productivity, accuracy and speed, the systems also enable more sustainable operations and improved customer satisfaction.
