Are you searching for a solution that combines maximum efficiency and maximum quality? And which saves money and consolidates processes at the same time? The OSR Shuttle™ and Pick-it-Easy combined with an integrated software solution make an incredibly strong team, which can cater to all these demands.
Most of the article range is stored securely in containers, trays or cartons within the OSR Shuttle™, taking up minimal space thanks to multi-deep organization. The integrated software solution for the OSR Shuttle™ comes in the form of KiSoft or SAP® EWM and provides complete access as well a complete overview of the article range and the system as a whole. In the event of changes to the article range or seasonal fluctuations, individual articles or even the entire range can be retrieved at the touch of a button. As a result, the system provides the flexibility required to respond to last-minute changes.
The OSR Shuttle™ rack line system is modular and can therefore be scaled to size and function. This provides the OSR Shuttle™ with sufficient flexibility to cater to current and future demands. It’s a reliable partner, even during peak periods such as the run up to Christmas. By storing goods one on top of the other in the nearest possible storage location, it reduces costs and makes the best possible use of the space available. Each rack level comes with a shuttle for retrieving containers, trays and cartons before transferring them to the incredibly fast lifts. All this guarantees maximum throughput and system availability.
But the OSR Shuttle™ can handle much more than just storage – as an all-in-shuttle, it also handles the core processes within the flow of goods. The goal: one touch handling. Each article is stored and retrieved only once during order processing, improving efficiency and profitability significantly. All-in-shuttle means that the OSR Shuttle™ also handles processes such as buffering and sequencing shipments. As a result, the workload is distributed efficiently, making the best possible use of slack periods. Precise sequencing in turn considerably reduces the amount of work at the point of sale. Replenishing manual or automatic picking areas at exactly the right time, using the OSR Shuttle™, improves efficiency within these areas.
The ergonomic Pick-it-Easy work stations are connected to the OSR Shuttle™. It supplies the work stations with goods at just the right time, to make sure the work load is evenly distributed. After processing, it then stores the goods once again. Various tasks can be completed at the multifunctional Pick-it-Easy work stations such as picking, storing, adding goods, defragmentation, merging, inventory and value added services. As a result, the Pick-it-Easy work stations fit perfectly into KNAPP’s low complexity warehouse philosophy.
The warehouse worker takes centre stage at the Pick-it-Easy work stations, thanks to the cutting-edge goods-to-person principle and the special KiDesign. The result is efficient, ergonomic and cost-effective order processing. Pick-it-Easy Multi and Pick-it-Easy Pocket are especially suited for the demands of e-commerce and omni-channel retail. The work stations can process goods from different sales channels and with different order structures, boosting the warehouse’s efficiency, flexibility and profitability.
