In the field of overhead conveying technology, SSI SCHAEFER offers two products that are suitable for handling goods on hangers, which are the SSI Single and the SSI Carrier technology.
The SSI Single is a system developed to transport and sort hanging goods, particularly for the retail and omnichannel business. After goods-in, the items are temporarily stored in the hanging goods storage area until needed. After picking, the goods on hangers are transported to goods-out where they are sorted by a sorting system.
The SSI Carrier offers the possibility to transport flat and hanging goods in one system and is particularly suitable for the e-commerce business. Flat and hanging goods can be fed into the system manually or automatically. With the matrix sorter, the system can be operated largely independent of the order size and allows sequencing of items even within an order. An optional dynamic buffer offers the possibility to handle returns or fast-moving items, store them temporarily and feed them into the matrix sorter fully automatically. Thus, the SSI Carrier is perfectly suited for special requirements in e-commerce. It combines a maximum flexibility with a short processing time and high sorting performance.
Compared to manual picking, picking with goods-to-person work stations can enable a picking performance of up to 1,000 picks per hour while reducing picking errors and improving inventory accuracy.
Our automated systems and the logistics software WAMAS® by SSI SCHAEFER enable effective order management to prioritize orders, which were received last-minute, and to ship them on the same day.
SSI SCHAEFER overhead conveying systems not only ensure gentle transport of hanging goods (and also flat goods using the SSI Carrier), but the space underneath can also be used for efficient storage and transport of flat goods. The SSI Carrier also offers a particularly space-saving solution with the possibility of a double-deck construction.
SSI SCHAEFER offers specially designed work stations for returns handling. In combination with the modular pouch sorter SSI Carrier, by SSI SCHAEFER, temporary storage, buffering, and re-inserting of returns are possible. After a check, returned goods that are in high demand are stored directly in the SSI Carrier. The goods are thus immediately back in the system and are fully automatically available for new orders and re-shipment at any time.
No matter whether your order profile changes on a regular basis or whether you have to deal with seasonal peaks that are high above average – SSI SCHAEFER develops and implements tailor-made, flexible and scalable systems that can be adapted to the growing demands of your company.
