Toll Global Logistics is said to have experienced significant productivity gains through the implementation of the TC8000, the latest enterprise mobile computer from Zebra Technologies Corporation. The enterprise-class mobile computer has been designed to drive significant gains in productivity and decrease worker fatigue. Zebra says it has worked with users around the globe to completely re-think, re-design and re-engineer industrial mobile computers based on deep research and human factors analysis.
Available immediately across Australia and New Zealand, the ergonomic and lightweight TC8000 mobile computer is said to offer an innovative design that reduces muscle effort by eliminating the need for ’tilt and verify’ motions that warehouse workers repeatedly conduct with traditional devices. Shaving seconds off each repetitive motion can save up to one hour per worker per shift, increasing productivity by an average of 14 per cent based on workflow, says Zebra.
Customised Solutions, a service of the Toll Global Logistics division that specialises in purpose-built and multi-user warehousing facilities, partnered with Zebra as one of three companies globally to pilot the new rugged TC8000 mobile computer. The results were proven in one of Customised Solutions’ Altona distribution centres, where the site has seen a rapid improvement in scanning speed through the pilot. During the pilot, the business measured pick performance against existing devices across a sample of users, providing an opportunity for employees to move to the latest digital technology in their everyday operating behaviours.
