E-commerce and omni-channel warehouses and distribution centres (DCs) are challenged to fulfil thousands of orders with ever-increasing service level requirements. However, it is difficult to accommodate time-critical processes in a DC that may not be optimised to meet these requirements.
Unpredictable demand and seasonal trends call for flexibility. Warehouses and DCs have to cope with the changing – and increasing – variety of stored products and order volumes. They also need to efficiently handle the expanding number of returns.
As part of our next generation of scalable solutions – evolutions – Vanderlande offers AIRPICK, which seamlessly integrates innovative systems, intelligent software and life-cycle services. This solution combines efficient picking with flawless automated sortation to individual orders in our pocket sorter, AIRTRAX Pocket. AIRPICK can sort an extremely wide range of products at a low investment level.
