Honeywell is helping retail supply chain services provider the Apparel Logistics Group expand the e-commerce order output at its distribution centre in Dallas. Honeywell will provide automated material handling solutions to the Apparel Logistics Group, provider of third-party logistics and order fulfillment services for apparel, footwear and accessories.

The two have signed a deal in this connection. Honeywell Intelligrated's technology and technical support services will help the logistics provider expand its e-commerce parcel shipping capability, increase productivity at the shipping dock, ensure order accuracy and expand its value-added services capacity, which includes returned merchandise management and product customisation.

These material handling solutions and services will enable the Apparel Logistics Group to more than triple its daily e-commerce order output.

"The third-party logistics (3PL) sector is experiencing unprecedented growth as more retailers require cost-effective order management, reverse logistics and product customisation services," said Pieter Krynauw, president, Honeywell Intelligrated. "In turn, 3PLs need to deploy automation solutions to help them ensure quality control, reduce risks associated with labour availability and deliver on their service-level agreements."

Located in Dallas to support fast shipping throughout the US, the 240,000-square-foot facility features an array of dedicated automation solutions including a high-volume sortation system and more than five miles of controlled conveyors.

"To keep pace with growing consumer expectations, both traditional retailers and online-only e-tailers need to outsource their order fulfillment, returned merchandise management and product customisation. In addition, available warehouse space in North America is at an all-time low," said Aric Schwab, senior vice president, the Apparel Logistics Group. "With these new facility enhancements, we're able to offer our customers increased volume, faster shipping and more value-added services."

Honeywell Intelligrated will install new material handling solutions to more efficiently move products through at the Apparel Logistics Group's distribution centre, which provides retailers with a one-day turnaround on e-commerce orders.

In addition, Honeywell Intelligrated will implement and support the facility's warehouse control system, which operates the production activities and equipment. This provides the Apparel Logistics Group with direct support from Honeywell Intelligrated's world-class technical services centre and 24/7 access to maintenance technicians to maximise facility uptime.

Large retail brands and online-only retailers in the US and Canada turn to the Apparel Logistics Group for warehousing, multi-channel order fulfillment and Foreign Trade Zone services to deliver products to distribution centres, stores or directly to individual consumers' homes.

Honeywell Intelligrated is a leading provider of automation solutions for distribution and fulfillment applications with decades of experience helping 3PLs achieve maximum productivity and efficiency by transitioning from manual to automated processes.

The Apparel Logistics Group provides multi-channel fulfillment and supply-chain services to clients in the apparel, footwear and accessories industry. The company is a business unit of The Apparel Limited (TAL), a global manufacturer of woven and knit apparel producing more than 50 million garments annually. (SV)
