The AFS Farr West Distribution Team has recently reached a significant milestone with Project ROAR: the distribution center modernization project. The installation of racking, which began yesterday, marks a crucial step forward and paves the way for the exciting next steps of system installation.

With the groundwork now laid, the focus shifts to the installation of key components. In the coming days, Symbotic, AFS’s automation partner, will install the transfer deck, a pivotal element in the warehouse infrastructure. Following this, racking aisles will be erected over the next few weeks and months, further advancing the project.

Excitement is building as the project progresses, with anticipation for the deployment of robotic systems designed to streamline warehouse operations. The automation will play a vital role in providing numerous distribution and retail benefits, ushering in a new era of efficiency and productivity.

As the installation progresses, Project ROAR is poised to transform the distribution center, enhancing capabilities and optimizing processes. With each milestone achieved, the vision of a state-of-the-art facility draws closer to reality. Stay tuned for further updates Project ROAR continues to unfold.
