LOGIMAT: Intralogistics solutions for e-commerce

Press information: Published on in Company, Retail

Specializing in multichannel distribution, the KNAPP Group has developed revolutionary solutions particularly for transacting e-commerce business. The requirements for logistics in this sector are especially demanding.

The overhead conveyors of the KNAPP subsidiary Dürkopp combined with the Pick-it-Easy Pocket and Pick-it-Easy Pack work stations are also extremely interesting for logistics suppliers outside of the textiles sector. Typical flat-packed goods such as shoes, books and textiles can be transported hanging in sorter bags on roll adaptors. This solution opens up a new dimension, especially for internet business.

KNAPP is currently installing a new distribution centre for Hugo Boss, the international lifestyle business and world market leader in the premium and luxury segment, in Filderstadt near Stutt-gart, Germany. The OSR Shuttle System equipped with 400,000 storage locations is the largest of its kind in the world.

The OSR Shuttle offers Hugo Boss the required flexibility to react to future changes in the mar-ket and to be able to quickly and efficiently react to the various demands of the different sales channels. Picking is carried out at the highly ergonomic work stations of the Pick-it-Easy series based on the goods-to-person procedure.

The OSR Shuttle in combination with the Pick-it-Easy work station is impressive not only due to its functional design but also due to the by now more than 30 units sold. The integrated light curtains in the source and target bays also set forth the zero defect warehouse philosophy.

Zero Defect Warehouse
The strategies of error prevention and error detection in process, eliminating the need for final checks, are the most important aspects of the Zero Defect Warehouse. Under this key topic, KNAPP introduced new solutions based on the KiSoft Vision technologies: KiSoft Vision Desk and KiSoft Vision Central Belt.
