KNAPP brings new technology to warehouse logistics.
Working with our customers all over the world,
At Würth Industrie Service GmbH & Co. KG in Bad Mergentheim, Open Shuttles, the driverless warehouse vehicles by KNAPP, autonomously transport trays with articles from goods-in to an infeed point at the conveyor system. The Open Shuttles take the physical stress and strain off the employees: no more pallets must be formed at the goods-in stations that the employees used to have to transport to the infeed point and manually place on the conveyor.
Dicarina, the leading wholesale distributor of consumer products in Panama City contracted KNAPP to install their state-of-the-art KiSoft WMS, including an automation solution with Pick-to-Belt, RF-picking and shoe sorter. KNAPPs innovative and scalable turn-key solution will be the heart of Dicarina’s new central distribution center. The systems of KNAPP will manage all warehouse processes from receiving, detrash, put-away, picking with pick-to-belt and split-case picking to sorting, shipping and guided loading processes. Sobek Logistica, KNAPP’s preferred partner in the North of Latin America, has been a key player in this project. Go-Live by the customer is scheduled for February 2016.
The Open Shuttles by KNAPP find their way through the warehouse safely and quickly. The driverless transport vehicles are successfully operating at the Grene central warehouse in Denmark. In July 2012, Grene decided on a comprehensive expansion and a retrofit of the existing warehouse system to keep up with the growing market demands and to become equipped for multi-channel. Along with the heart of the solution, the goods-to-person picking system OSR Shuttle, the Open shuttles are now independently handling complex transport jobs.
