    Melaleuca is an international manufacturer of unique health, home, and personal care products.

    Melaleuca’s growing sales accompanied by growing labor was their main problem for order fulfillment. Their existing order fulfillment was inefficient. Their existing Pick To Light (PTL) system required each associate to handle every container even if there were no products to be picked in that area (pick & pass). Bastian’s new system helped Melaleuca support their 8 percent annual growth rate.
