  1. Business: FedEx SmartPost Team 16: Alex Johnson AshwinNair Phuc Van Nguyen Ziran Zhu

  2. Introduction Background: • FedEx SmartPost delivery model Statement of Need: • Limited staging capacity during Peak season Project Objective: • Evaluate the feasibility for vertical staging (racking systems) as a solution to increase staging space.

  13. Horizontal Pallet Transfer System

  14. Result (Evaluation of Alternatives)

  15. Decision Matrix

  16. Conclusions and Recommendations Selective Racking Benefits: • Minimizes implementation cost and improved flexibility Setbacks: • Slowest to remove pallets from the racks and may require additional labor. Gravity Flow Benefit: • Significantly higher pallet staging capacity. Setback: - Relatively more expensive compared to Selective Racking.

  17. Conclusions and Recommendations Pushback • Middle ground solution • Pushback is best where having a cheaper implementation cost and more flexibility while also maintaining a high density level is important.

  18. Operational Improvements and Future Work Additional Operational improvements recommended: • Changes in inspection process • Route organization Considerations for future work: • Identify priorities for each hub’s needs • Refine time and cost estimates • Improve operational processing capacity
