As the world is transitioning to digital and online retailing for more goods and services, our material handling systems will continue to play a growing part in ensuring orders are processed with speed and free of errors, usually within 24 hours or less after an order is received. This is coupled with the need to manage returned goods which can be up to as much as 25%.
The volume of orders received often increases demand on conveyors to buffer large volumes of picked orders, prior to final sortation for dispatch. Conveyor Units have a number of solutions for buffer storage ready to induct picked orders into sorters, frequently and at high speed.
Another leading fashion retailer has received in excess of 1.5Km of conveyor over four sites in the UK and Germany. Conveyor Units’ Lineshaft conveyor, 24-volt Zero Line Pressure conveyor, Belt and Gravity conveyors have been used extensively for order picking, waste disposal, cross-docking and despatch of products to stores throughout Europe.
