Store-friendly deliveries and a redundant design

In today’s food retail market, many companies are challenged by a lack of available workforce at their distribution centers. This means that the automation of core warehouse processes is crucial to ensure ongoing success.

In addition, the growing number of multiple store formats is making store-friendly deliveries increasingly important. This includes both full case – and single item – deliveries. The expand-ing number of SKUs (stock keeping units) also has an impact on effective space use.

To keep up with an exponentially growing market, scalable solutions are vital. As part of our next generation of scalable solutions – evolutions – Vanderlande offers STOREPICK, which seamlessly integrates innovative systems, intelligent software and life-cycle services.

 

STOREPICK is a robotized, end-to-end automated case picking (ACP) solution designed for re-tail distribution that allows you to optimize the processes of your entire supply chain. STORE-PICK utilizes a modular design to prevent single points of failure and allow for flexibility and future expansion. Vanderlande’s proven Load Forming Logic (LFL) guarantees store-friendly deliveries across multiple store formats.

STOREPICK is ideal for retailers that use ambient, fresh and chilled warehouse processes, and offers:

  • store-friendly deliveries
  • the efficient transport of products
  • a redundant design

Palletising - Automated Load cases from trays on to an order carrier. Load Forming Logic optimises load carrier utilisation and store friendliness.
Tray storage Temporary buffer of (single SKU or empty) trays that are presented in the right sequence for stacking on pallets or roll cages.
Teaching Determine and manage all relevant SKU properties that are required for automated processing and to building store-friendly load carriers.
Pallet storage Automated pallet storage for fast, smooth and efficient pallet handling.
Depalletising - Automated Destack cases from a single SKU pallet and load them into trays for further processing.
Depalletising - Manual Destack cases from a single SKU pallet and load them into trays for further processing.
Marshalling Transport finished load carriers to marshalling buffer. Based on transport schedule, load carriers are sent to the loading buffer to prepare trucks for loading.
Palletising - Manual Load cases from trays on to an order carrier. Load Forming Logic optimises load carrier utilisation and store friendliness.
Control room TOP: Optimise the available resources for the operation so scheduled orders can start as late as possible. BPI: Show on KPI level how the system is performing and provide input for process improvement. LFL: load forming logic software which facilitates store-friendly deliveries and the efficient transportation of goods.
