Customized Intralogistics for Online Shopping in the Fashion Industry
The concern of reaching fulfillment limits is driving fashion suppliers, logistics managers and CEP service providers alike. As a consequence, the demand for suitable concepts is increasing in order to be able to operate economically and unerringly across all sales channels.
Here, too, there is a trend toward omnichanneling so as to be able to supply both brick-and-mortar retailers and end customers directly.
Challenges associated with this are:
extremely heterogeneous product assortment as well as seasonal changes and the associated requirements for flexible storage, picking and sorting processes
high return rates as consumers often make use of the free return option
click & collect requirements must be mapped at the intralogistics level
These complex requirements can be fully covered with the SSI Carrier:
Designed in a modular construction, the pouch sorter can be used either as a stand-alone solution, in combination with manual storage and picking applications, or as a shuttle system. One advantage, especially for fashion logistics, is the ability to transport, distribute, buffer, sort and sequence both hanging and lying goods gently and reliably.
The entire process is controlled by the modern and user-friendly WAMAS® logistics software. Optimal interfaces to customer systems ensure seamless integration into almost any type of warehouse. In addition to monitoring the system and controlling the material flow, WAMAS® also takes care of tracking the goods and visualization with WAMAS® Lighthouse.
