Swisslog, a Swiss-based designer of automated systems for hospitals, warehouses and distribution centres, announced that it will deliver its newly developed order fulfilment system for DB Schenker Logistics in Arlandastad, Sweden.
DB Schenker will be the first company to implement the CarryPick solution, part of the Swisslog’s Click&Pick e-commerce portfolio. The system will be put in place for DB Schenker’s customer Lekmer.com, Scandinavian online toy retailer.
“Together with Swisslog, we have developed an inventory management solution that is unique for online businesses in Europe. This is designed to deliver levels of productivity that exceed all manual solutions in the industry,” said Anders Holmberg, Business Development Manager of DB Schenker Logistics.
The CarryPick solution will consist of 65 Automated Guided Vehicles, 1,500 mobile racking units and seven ergonomic workstations, installed together with Swisslog’s proprietary control systems, WarehouseManager.
Swisslog’s Click&Pick e-commerce portfolio consists of several modules that are combined into customized, scalable solutions, including conveyors, lifting technology, software and other technologies such as AutoStore, SmartCarrier and CarryPick. Combining storage with replenishment and picking functionality, Swisslog’s Click&Pick solutions ensure accurate distribution whilst providing efficient processes for returns handling.
CarryPick combines transportable racks, robots and Warehouse Management software with mobile multi-functional workstations, providing retailers with a flexible, scalable solution that can adjust quickly to their changing requirements. The automated storage and goods-to-person order fulfilment system is specifically designed for the intralogistics requirements of e-commerce businesses, where product variability, delivery times and cost efficiency are daily challenges.
