Pacific Sunwear Implements Order Fulfillment Software

Pacific Sunwear installs an automated material handling system from Dematic for the company's new distribution center located in Olathe, Kansas.

PacSun implements Dematic's C-L series of motorized roller conveyors, the new Dematic FlexSort SL sorter and a Dematic Put to Light order fulfillment system. Dematic's warehouse control system provides order fulfillment, material flow control, incident management, maintenance management and advanced performance analysis capabilities.

An advanced Incident Management system alerts operators to any event that inhibits the material flow through the PacSun system. A Performance Management solution provides warehouse performance analysis capabilities for continued optimization.

PacSun needed to accommodate up to 93 packers simultaneously. It also wanted to support its newest retail concept, 'one thousand steps', a specialty footwear store chain targeted toward customers seeking fashion forward footwear.

"Dematic came in and delivered a solution to PacSun in roughly half the time it would normally have taken," says Kirk Williams, director of DC operations, PacSun. "Dematic was one of the few companies that fully understood our business objectives and could deliver the solution on our tight timeframe."The leading edge technology with the Dematic C-L series conveyor and the Dematic FlexSort SL sorter, combined with their many years of experience will give PacSun the tools we need to get the most out of our supply chain."
