Consistent Product Flow

A leading retailer reached out to FMH Conveyors to assess and recommend a solution that would maximize operation processes at their distribution center in Oklahoma City.


  • The system used four to five employees on each outbound lane manually pushing boxes down the line into the trailers.
  • Recirculation rates became extremely high causing the system to frequently shut down.


The installation of FMH Conveyors’ BestReach rigid roller conveyors at the distribution center resulted in several improvements including:

  • A reduction in personnel per lane to one person
  • A significant drop in recirculation rates
  • Elimination of packages being backed up and causing system failures
  • Overall these improvements enabled employees to consistently move more product out the door
