Material Handling Integration

Material Handling

Tompkins International’s Material Handling Integration solutions offer greater thought around real needs and balance costs with benefits, instead of simply relying on equipment. While many companies design facilities that depend heavily on conveyors and other mechanization, there are smarter design solutions that provide more productivity, throughput, and flexibility—often with less capital investment.

Effective and efficient systems within distribution and fulfillment centers are essential to every company’s profitability. In fact, the recent surge in online ordering and changing customer expectations dramatically impacts material handling in Distribution and Fulfillment Centers.

We offer the specialized knowledge and experience to facilitate affordable material handling designs at the lowest possible operating costs for short- and long-term distribution needs. Look to Tompkins for designing, implementing and supporting material handling integration within your facilities.

Our services include:

Material Handling Equipment (MHE) Systems Design: Our designs are focused on providing required capabilities, minimizing costs, and incorporating flexibility to adapt to future requirements. Our independence from any single equipment supplier—combined with our experience among all the major MHE technologies—means that we can design to the client’s needs, and not to a limited set of solutions.

Warehouse Control System (WCS): A great way to expand functionality and build flexibility into distribution operations is by leveraging a WCS. Tompkins provides a solution that is proven to enhance MHE performance and bring you the most cost-effective platform
