Canadian Distribution Center Benefits from Automated Conveyor System

Canadian Distribution Center

Precision Warehouse Design has continued to install automatic material handling systems throughout lockdowns and cross-border restrictions. The strict border requirements implemented by Canada in 2020, prevented PWD from traveling to several active job sites. A recent 2021 project completed in Canada benefitted from our cutting edge controls and real-time monitoring software.

Precision Warehouse Design’s team, headquartered in North Texas, partnered with Canadian mechanical and electrical installation partners. As a result, the client’s new construction distribution center had a large conveyor system integrated by PWD virtually. Although it was a challenge, our team was able to communicate via video conference and test all systems remotely.

Conveyor Equipment and Services Included:

  • High speed sortation with (8) downlines and recirc line over dock doors
  • CSA certified PWD designed control panel
  • (10) pack out stations
  • Induction platform
  • Extendable conveyors for fluid loading
  • PrecisionWare360 (controls software package)

Client Testimonial: “We recently consolidated multiple facilities into one new DC to service Central and Eastern Canada.  Our integrator, Precision Warehouse Design, could not physically be on-site to test and support start-up, due to Covid restrictions.  They did this 100% remotely using their state-of-the-art software and controls technology.  We were nervous, but after the first day we were amazed at how well the system performed!  Kudos to PWD and your Project Management and Controls Engineering Teams!”
