Blue Horseshoe recently toured the operations at Cengage Learning (www.cengage.com) in Northern Kentucky.  With nearly 1 million total square feet and 8 miles of conveyor, Cengage can store 100,000 pallets of books and ships over 125,000 cartons per day during peak times.

Over the past 20 years, Blue Horseshoe has worked with Cengage to design their facilities and processes in the US, Canada, UK, Mexico and South America. Highlights of the video include the building trains, and bucket brigade picking using the Voice Picking System “Jennifer”, provided by Lucas Systems (www.lucasware.com ).

The complete video shows many areas within the facility including receiving, kit-on-the-fly processing, automatic weigh-in-motion QC, completed carton handling, and the high speed shipping sorter from Automotion (www.automotionconveyors.com ).  Included are brief interviews with Anthony Hayes, Outbound & WMS Manager; Suzanne Wilsbacher, IT Project Manager; and Rich Eby, VP of Global Operations & Engineering.
