The cartons are supplied on pallets to the goods-in work stations equipped with pallet lifting tables where they are repacked into storage bins by the goods-in staff.
Fast and medium movers are transported on the conveying system to the Schäfer Miniload Crane (SMC) with two aisles for storage. The remaining products are stored in the Schäfer Carousel System (SCS), which can accommodate 11,000 bins.
The orders are started automatically; manual picking from flow racks is accomplished using RF technology. Fast movers are picked from the fully automatic picking system A-Frame, which is equipped with a double filling point and connected to the SMC by flow racks.
Picking from the SCS with two connected Pick to Tote work stations is done according to the goods-to-person principle. A picking performance of 1,000 picks per hour is achieved at each work station.
