Less touch and lower cost multi-use sortation

Every touch of an item incurs costs and to add to the pain, many distribution centres are short of space to handle the increasing number of e-commerce items. The BG Pouch System can be installed in unused overhead space where single items can be buffered, sorted and sequenced to automate the order handling and returns processes. With a capacity of over 10,000 items/hour and its vast combination of benefits, logistics operators can achieve handling with very few manual item touches. The result is a higher throughput and very little use of floor-space.

Extended item handling capabilities

Flexible automation is a common denominator with the BG Pouch System. The system enables processes such as regular sorting after picking, batch sortation and intermediate storage handling of returned items to be completed with less manual handling.

A fulfilment or distribution centre can flatten its handling peaks by using the pouch system for predictive picking of items before the days of peak demand. In this process, items which are pre-picked before a promotion or sale can be buffered individually in pouches inside the system, making the dynamic buffer work as a scalable interim storage.

In addition to the increased handling efficiency, the operational cost is also reduced for sortation and returns handling.

  • 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.
