Ideas That Work: Pull Cases in Plastic Bins, Not Case Carts

Pull Cases in Plastic Bins, Not Case Carts

Our new system for pulling cases has saved a lot of time and energy. Instead of piling supplies for the next day's cases on carts — and sometimes having to spend considerable time searching for the right cart — we now have individual plastic bins for each case. We simply put the case supplies in the bins and attach the preference cards to the outsides. It's a much easier way to keep things straight.
