Automated sorting systems offering an excellent way to increase operational efficiency in high throughput e-commerce warehouses and logistics centres (or 3PLs) with high inventory turnover. They can be installed with a quick return on investment and flexibly expanded at any time to meet business needs. They typically require a lower initial investment and deployment time than full warehouse automation.
Robotic sorting solutions are up to 10 times more efficient than manual sorting, and they also significantly reduce labour costs, help cover labour shortages, solve high turnover rates, and require less space. With their fully automated navigation, they can work in any warehouse environment and can fit in any space quickly and flexibly.
Automatic sorting systems can be easily scaled to meet ever ever growing needs. As production or delivery volumes increase, additional robots or sorting stations can be easily added to speed up the process, more efficiently. Then warehouse can take them out if order volumes do not justify keeping a large fleet of robots. New items can be added to the system smoothly and easily, without any modification or development.
It is fitting for high-traffic warehouses, logistics centres (3PLs) that require cost-effective and accurate order management, cross-docking and returns handling. The automated sorting solution can also help meeting the growing demand for more frequent but small batch orders, while improving the overall efficiency of distribution operations. Its accuracy reduces the number of unnecessary grabs in the sortation process.
Put walls, storage and stocking units, crate storage systems have a modular racking structure that can be expanded with additional accessories such as extra modules, robots, bins and ports, depending on the specific operational needs and environment requirements. This is an alternative solution to traditional wall sorting that can increase efficiency without increasing manual labour requirements.
