Locating packaging workstations in several areas within a warehouse means workers never need to travel far to prepare a shipment. This maximizes productivity because it eliminates downtime required to find and wait for an available workstation. Companies like RDM Industrial Products Inc. offer customizable workstation solutions because they manufacture this equipment to customer specifications.
Larger facilities should benefit from the use of several packaging tables containing different features and placed in a line. Similar to a production line, workers can move down as they progress from one stage of the packaging process to the next. This allows several people to work simultaneously, another aspect that enhances productivity within the facility.
