Dorman Products Reduces Travel Waste with Autonomous Mobile Robots
Dorman Products specializes in aftermarket parts and components that repair professionals, auto enthusiasts and owners could once only buy from original equipment manufacturers. Dorman Products has a catalog of more than 118,000 products and that number grows every year.
Meeting customer needs is important to Dorman Products and to better meet those needs, the company wanted to become more efficient in the warehouse. The company sought to reduce the distance employees traveled within the warehouse, and allow them to focus on more valued tasks like stock picking. Dorman Products deployed Zebra's autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to cut down on travel waste without disrupting the overall production process.
