Less touch and lower cost in reverse logistics

In returns handling, the need for less handling or touching is particularly critical. Traditionally a great deal of all labour efforts in fulfilment and distribution are concentrated in the transportation of items inside the facility. To deal better with reverse logistics, a handling system like the BG Pouch System, can help drive down the expensive manual handling costs.

Streamlining the returns handling process

The BG Pouch System is a single multi-purpose system for buffering, sorting, sequencing and returns handling. The system offers a more flexible automation process which enables reverse item handling to be completed with less manual handling.

To ease the handling of items in the returns process, each returned item is placed directly into a pouch rather than into regular storage. This means that the pouch system is used as an intermediate buffer for items which are most likely to be re-sold according to data from the Warehouse Management System (WMS). Items which are not sold after a few days can be returned easily to shelf storage as part of an automatic housekeeping process which is run during low throughput periods.

Features

  • System installed in unused overhead space
  • Minimal touch for item returns handling
  • Dynamic and intermediate item buffer
  • Up to a 30% saving in floor space.
The BG Pouch System enables logistics operators to achieve handling with very few manual item touches, a higher throughput and very little use of floor-space.
