ES3LLC needed a facility to provide 3PL services for food manufacturers to eliminate the need for the manufacturers’ to maintain their own on and off site warehouse facilities. ES3LLC’s highly automated facility provides cost efficiencies to manufacturers and improve service levels to end-customers.
The ES3LLC warehouse resides on a 275 acre site in York, Pennsylvania. Originally constructed in 2001 and expanded in 2004 and 2009, it is designed to receive 700 pallets per hour on standard 40" x 48" GMA/CHEP pallets with anticipated weekly shipments of 5.3 million cases! The new system is operational 20 hours per day, 6 days a week with full redundancy. The system receives pallets as they are delivered at the receiving dock doors. It identifies and stores them in the automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) via a multi-level high throughput conveyor network. It then delivers pallets to the shipping dock doors where they are loaded onto trailers or to pick tunnel locations where case picked pallets are built.
