Project

Rising sales pushed the previous manual picking at the old location in Garbsen to its limits.

At a new location in Langenhagen, an increase in performance and delivery speed was achieved.

Solution

On a floor area of 22,500 m² is the storage and work area, the packaging and dispatch area and the EcoPocket with the loading areas.

With the EcoPocket, arvato can now automatically sort flat goods and shoe boxes. At the induct station, operators induct the goods into an opening under which an empty pocket suspended from the rail. Hanging goods to be sorted can also be added to the EcoPocket.

Regular stored goods enter the pockets via 11 induct stations. To avoid having to sort prepared returns into the manual warehouse first, they are temporarily stored in a returns store with a capacity of 70,000 parts.

EcoPocket system

This system is based on the roll adapter, which is expanded by a special product carrier - the EcoPocket. In combination with the roll adapter, the system is even able to sort items such as shoes, books and bagged textiles, actually all items that fit in a conventional shopping bag. This combination made it possible for the first time to transport and sort hanging and flat goods in one single system, which is an interesting solution for e-commerce in particular
