1. Smart software
With the right WMS, you always and everywhere keep control of your goods flows and your stocks.
The warehouse management system (WMS) is the brain behind all warehouse automation. A smart software system contributes to more efficient warehouse logistics. This system also communicates with multiple intralogistics systems simultaneously, gives you precise information about your inventory and calculates the most efficient route for order picking.
2. Goods-to-person order picking
This saves order pickers walking distances and time searching for the right goods. Goods-to-person picking includes all intralogistics systems that automatically transport goods to the order picker. This reduces walking times for warehouse workers, makes the warehouse more compact and increases efficiency.
Examples of goods-to-person order picking systems:
3. Automation of material handling
Save walking distances of warehouse workers by automating internal transport. This can be done with conveyors for boxes, totes or pallets. Other examples of internal transport for pallets are: monorail, traverse or AGV.
4. Automatic Storage systems
This ensures higher output, lower error rates and bring speed to your logistics process. There are different types of automatic storage systems. For totes, trays or boxes, a Mini load is an appropriate solution. For automatic storage of pallets in the warehouse, a stacker crane or shuttle is a practical solution.
