Online PR News – 07-December-2012 – Utrecht – On the first day of the Logistica trade fair, the i-Collector was the big winner of the Logistica Award 2012. This intelligent buffer storage and order picking system makes it possible to automatically collect orders on item level. This offers a solution for manually collecting orders on item level, especially suitable for E-Commerce applications meaning immediate availability of the products, short delivery and high service quality.
The jury was very impressed by this original and simple solution for compact storage and order picking which i-Collector offers with this new concept. “The solution can potentially lead to large savings in space in the warehouse, as well in emissions and operational costs.”
Director Fred Bokhorst sees unlimited opportunities for warehouse, click & collect and pick-up-points as more consumers make their purchases in webshops. "A first system is currently being tested by the largest grocerie store in England. We see the future possibilities for further expansion with robots that can take over the load at the in-and output side.
Despite the apparent high degree of automation, order picking is still one of the most time-consuming and labour intensive activities in the warehouse. The i-Collector reduces your operational costs in the picking zone with 40 to 80%, Non Movements and Localization, Non Picking or Counting mistakes or Backorders, High Speed and faster time to Ship. The i-Collector fully processes the whole order in one operation, Batch-in / Mixed-out or the other way around regardless size, shape or the type of packaging of the item. This system automatically feeds items as per order requirements to be automatically placed into the delivery totes or boxes and ReadyToShip to customer.
