The TGW One-Touch Receiving AS RS solution eliminates 6 manual touches of a traditional storage and retrieval process. As a result the receiving process can be higly improved and speeded up, which leads to lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
The TGW One-Touch Receiving System automatically receives, stores and retrieves cartons: There is no need for handling, sorting or segregation on the dock. The automated storage system validates the purchase order, reconciles the receipt and prepares it for distribution. There is no manual scanning or inventory reconciliation, no hand loading or manual retrieval of cartons.
Thus TGW One-Touch automated warehouse solutions lead to
► lower Total Cost of Ownership, both
by reducing handling cost
by speeding up the storage process
How does this automated storage system work?
• Cartons are placed on a conveyor where they are scanned and stored automatically in the mini-load system
• When the product is allocated, cartons are automatically extracted and conveyed to unit sortation
• If the carton has remaining units, the carton is closed and placed back onto the conveyor where it is returned to the shuttle system as a residual carton
• When this SKU is allocated again, the system will pull full cartons from the mini-load system and send a residual carton from the shuttle to make up the difference
• Units are packed to outbound cartons at the unit sorter and a shipping label is applied
• The carton is released on the conveyor system where they are sorted to the appropriate door and loaded to an outbound store trailer
• As soon as the order is completed, the cartons are automatically transported to the shipping area
