Emptying of Containers is Managed Efficiently With LOGIA
At LOGIA, the portfolio of functionalities is expanding – now the functionality is developed to support emptying of containers and palletizing of parcel.
The WMS-system holds many functions, and now emptying of containers is also to be found on the long list of automatic solutions. Thereby, LOGIA can now simplify the entire process from receiving and emptying of containers to palletising of parcel as well as the following handling of the cargo. The WMS-solution assists the operator and guides the person through the entire process by the screens’ visual and uncomplicated design.
Based on information about the goods expected to arrive, it is possible to improve the planning and approach of emptying of containers through this new functionality. When using Advance Shipping Notice, the warehouse holds the best opportunity to know the content within the containers prior to the receiving hereof. Thereby, the warehouse can utilize the information to prioritize which container must be firstly emptied in relation to the already existing orders.
An operator places the boxes on a rail system from where the individual boxes are measured and scanned. If the boxes are not provided with a barcode, they will be marked out firstly in the process. After scanning and identification of the boxes’ content, these are divided to relevant chutes via the rail system or sorting system. From the chute, the operator can easily place the boxes on the pallet. When the pallet is full, it will be transported to the storage area or directly to the shipping area, if there are orders attached to the product.
Several of LOGIA’s customers already employ or are in the process of implementing this new functionality to increase the efficiency of emptying of containers – and here Hummel, DKI Logistics, and other companies are to be found.
