Store-friendly delivery and efficiency by smart order consolidation and shipping
Automated order consolidation and shipping can significantly enhance the efficiency and speed of your outbound operation. It can also enhance store-friendly delivery and reduce transport costs by optimising the loading of dollies, pallets and roll cages.
Material flows from different (order picking) areas come together in an automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS). Our QUICKSTORE HDS shuttle system is a cost-effective solution for short-term storage of order totes and cartons. Within a short time period, flows can be sorted and grouped per order, delivery unit or shipment, and then dispatched in the exact sequence you require. The result is fast, efficient order consolidation and store-friendly delivery with minimal manual labour requirements. Examples of our order consolidation solutions: Tesco, Tommy Hilfiger and Sorbo.
Automated shipping sortation
By automated shipping sortation goods can automatically be directed to a lane associated with a retail outlet, delivery route, delivery provider or geographical area. This significantly increases efficiency, improves accuracy and reduces the costs per carton/tote handled. We have implemented automated shipping sortation at many companies, including Casaventa, Nike, Staples, Colombini, and Herma.
