DELIVERING IN RECORD TIME – WITH INTELLIGENCE AND EFFICIENCY
Shipping delicate, high-quality clothing requires much more than gentle handling. In view of ever shorter delivery deadlines and high return rates, processes in particular must be highly efficient and mesh perfectly.
overhead transport systems
from Schönenberger enable the optimized interlocking of storage areas, work stations with fully or partially automated transport routes. The products are stored and transported by means of various goods carriers (long trolleys, basket trolleys) either hanging or lying. In this process, the goods are assigned to specific trolleys, which are identified via barcodes. This allows the goods carriers to be automatically tracked and routed.
Linking trolleys to trolley trains speeds up the flow of goods, while dynamic storage as well as buffer areas above the workstations provide flexibility and ensure efficient throughput over the shortest possible distances.

Handling B2B and B2C orders in one process with flexible textile logistics
Challenges for textile logistics lie in the handling of different distribution channels. In stationary retail, the focus is on bringing large quantities of the same products to the points of sale. E-commerce, on the other hand, involves a large number of small and diverse goods. Often these are single part orders. If logistics are not designed for such different volumes and distribution channels, decisive disadvantages arise compared to e-commerce-enabled competitors.
With a Schönenberger overhead conveyor system you get a highly flexible intralogistics system with which you can handle both stationary trade and e-commerce customers in one process. It does not matter whether an order consists of a single part or 100 parts.
With our innovative overhead conveyor technology, we enable companies to meet the challenges of garment logistics. Our solution enables efficient and flexible processing of orders, regardless of their size and distribution channel. This enables brick-and-mortar retailers to successfully face the competition of e-commerce and at the same time benefit from the advantages of traditional sales.
