Newegg Tackles Peak Demand with
OPEX® Goods-to-Person Solution
Newegg needed to build a new distribution center where orders could be picked with higher throughput, greater accuracy, and with fewer people. They required a scalable system that could keep up with Newegg’s exponential growth. Additionally, Newegg needed the system to meet its same-day shipping goals while also handling the significant spike in holiday order demand — up to 18,000 orders per day. Because Newegg sells high-end electronics, they also require a secure storage environment.

Newegg built a new 400,000 square foot distribution center in Indianapolis, Indiana. After researching several automated order fulfillment systems, Newegg decided to implement a two aisle Perfect Pick® system. Perfect Pick was the innovative and advanced solution that Newegg wanted and was flexible enough to handle their spikes in demand during peak seasons.
The Perfect Pick robotic picking technology was explicitly engineered to simplify order fulfillment automation with increased throughput, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. For Newegg, the Perfect Pick was the self-contained, standalone point solution that answered their needs with modular, high-density racking and autonomous iBOT® robotic delivery vehicles, which can access every storage location within their aisle.
Perfect Pick easily supports future expansion without any major disruptions to the operation. The flexibility of the system allows Newegg to accommodate their growing business. By adding advanced technology like Perfect Pick, Newegg demonstrates to their customers and prospective clients their dedication to providing state-of-the-art order fulfillment and outstanding customer service.
