Dairy Crest is the UK's premier chilled manufacturing and dairy foods company. With 21 sites across the UK and over 7,000 employees, Dairy Crest depends on a nimble, state-of-the art distribution network capable of meeting both current and future demands.
After testing a variety of technologies, Dairy Crest settled on an Intermec wireless solution for its primary distribution center. The system is based on the versatility of the compact SF51 bluetooth scanner.
Intermec partners Blackroc Technology and GJ Integrated Systems implemented the new system with no downtime in Dairy Crest's operations. Once installed, it was quickly deemed a success, producing dramatic improvements such as a pick accuracy in excess of 99%.
