Kardex Remstar supplies efficient and reliable storage and retrieval solutions for customers from virtually all industry sectors in line with the “goods-to-person” principle. The latest application, sort2ship, is the answer to the need for flexible solutions for buffering and sequencing shipping orders.
With sort2ship, the customer is able to group together order lines from various storage systems – including storage lifts, vertical carousels, and static shelving – in a time-saving and cost-efficient manner. Using conveying technology, the containers with the order lines are transported to the buffer storage location where they are temporarily stored in the smallest possible space. On demand, the containers can then be sorted according to customer-specific shipping options – for instance the order in which they are loaded, their time of delivery, or certain forwarding specifications – and retrieved for packaging or directly for shipping. Thus sort2ship enables distribution centers and e-commerce suppliers with several thousand order lines per day to increase their order picking activity by up to 35 percent. Besides e-commerce and mail-order businesses, sort2ship is also perfect for using in the area of food production.
In keeping with the saying “Order picking starts with storage,” Megamat RS vertical carousels and Shuttle XP storage lifts form the basis of order picking solutions from Kardex Remstar. With the Power Pick Global warehouse management software, storage strategies such as batch picking can be adopted and user-friendly features including pick-to-light and put-to-light can be integrated.
