The flexibility to handle fluctuating demand

Unpredictable demand, seasonal trends and special sale days – there’s always something putting the pressure on your warehouse systems. Then there’s the requirement to increase the variety and volume of products you can handle, and – like your competitors – you have to deal with returns quickly and efficiently.

So how do you meet the high levels of service demanded by your customers? What’s the best way to fulfil thousands of orders? And how do you cope with the need for rapid deliveries?

Our answer to all these questions is efficient picking with automated sortation through AIRPICK – one of our next generation of scalable solutions. AIRPICK tackles today’s challenges with tomorrow’s technology, to offer:

  • efficient picking and flawless sortation to AIRTRAX Pocket, Hanger and Transporter
  • smart handling of returned goods
  • easy processing of variable order lead times
  • and flexibility in product handling.


Items are picked manually from various warehouse areas in a continuous flow.

Pocket loading

Each pocket is randomly inducted with one item. This can also be done with a smart item robot (optional).


Items are sent into and retrieved from dynamic buffer loops. This also allows for fully automated handling of returned items.


Items are automatically sorted to individual orders and moved in the desired sequence.

Packing station

Items are presented to the pack operator per order and, if required, in the desired sequence.
