When goods have to be shipped in the shortest possible time and returns have to be collected at the same time, intelligently regulated processes and maximum control are imperative. The crux is also to make returned goods available for shipment again in the shortest possible time so that inventory does not grow unnecessarily – the parade discipline for successful logistics in e-commerce.
Schönenberger’s modular and flexibly expandable overhead conveyor systems enable both: order-accurate processing every second and sufficient flexibility for fast-reacting work, e.g. if an order is changed at short notice. – At Schönenberger, we call this event-driven logistics. As a rule, e-commerce projects use the Schönenberger Intra-Logistics-System ILS2100 is implemented.
The products are transported under the ceiling without contact by means of various goods carriers and held in dynamic storage and buffer areas. Suspended goods can be managed and sorted with single load carriers and flat goods with bags in the same system. This leaves the floor space free for the functional areas: a plus in safety, overview and cleanliness in production and distribution.
