L&S Engineers reduces error rate by half

Founded in 1971, L&S Engineers is the country’s leading retailer of spare parts for organisations in the construction, plant hire and groundcare industries.

The challenge

In 2020, the business needed to upscale its warehousing operations to combat ongoing and intensifying bottlenecks.

The fall-out of Brexit and COVID-19 massively contracted the labour market and caused ongoing supply chain disruptions. As well as L&S’ growing storage requirements, the business was struggling with picking accuracy and overflowing bins whilst attempting to improve working conidtions for the staff,

While these challenges were exacerbating across the industry, L&S’ innovation and pre-existing technology investments had put them at an advantage.

One of the biggest improvements we’ve seen is the reduction of picking errors. We’ve got a pick-to-light system that highlights the bin to pick from. Because we’re at a fixed station and we’re not trying to do the operation at the bin, we’ve seen our error rate reduce by half.
