PROCESSES AND SOLUTIONS

  • Pre-picking at 148 picking areas using pick-by-voice.
  • Three roller conveyors are replenished automatically with the same article code.
  • Automatic inspection of inbound goods using permanently installed scanners. Pallets are checked for contour, weight and barcode legibility.
  • Putaway is based on A, B or C criteria, even distribution principles, batches and maximum loads per bay.
  • Route optimisation: PROLAG®World sorts the beverage pallets according to the scheduled delivery routes. The pallets are collected from the warehouse in such a way that they can be loaded onto the lorry in reverse order, i.e. the pallets to be unloaded first are readily accessible.
  • Visualisation: An overview template provides real time views of the conveyors and high-bay areas showing the current status of the warehouse. As soon as a conveyor, stacker crane, profile control, highspeed door or fire door reports an error or malfunction, PROLAG®World’s visualisation system indicates that this area is malfunctioning and marks it accordingly in red.

CUSTOMER BENEFITS

  • Automation results in efficient, optimised processes.
  • Sophisticated visualisation means that malfunctions can be detected and remedied at an early stage.
