AIRTRAX Pocket is an order fulfilment system suitable for ecommerce, omni-channel and retail warehouses, and distribution centres (DCs).

Capable of smart handling, it is part of the AIRTRAX family – an innovative and reliable family of products for transporting, sorting, sequencing and storing hanging goods.

AIRTRAX Pocket offers the following benefits:

  • unique sequencing technology makes it flexible – it can handle changing order profiles easily, whether it is fashion, jewellery or multimedia, among others.
  • it allows you to have optimal control over your item flow, which results in efficient picking, personalisation, packing and other value-added services.
  • returns handling has never been so efficient. Returned items are handled directly and made automatically available for new customers.
