Scalable, modular, pre-engineered and pre-configured Goods-to-Person (GTP) order picking solution achieving from 200 to 1,000 order lines/hour.
Automated inventory buffer with integrated GTP order picking
Issues including the lack of a reliable, willing, and available workforce, increasing employment costs, workplace safety and the need for greater flexibility to cope with ongoing business uncertainty, are driving the development of new, highly-efficient and cost-effective logistics automation solutions.
Key among these is automated Goods-to-Person (GTP) picking solutions, but traditionally the ROI has not been compelling for small to medium-sized operations. Enter Dematic's new Modular GTP System - a flexible, off-the-shelf picking solution which can be scaled up or down as your business changes or as seasonality dictates.
A key advantage of the modular GTP system is that it requires minimal customisation, significantly reducing costs and enabling rapid start-up. It can store between 4,000 and 40,000 totes, and if more SKUs (stock keeping units) are added or order volume increases, the modular and scalable GTP system can be easily expanded by adding additional Dematic Multishuttle storage aisles and/or pick stations, reducing the initial investment required and providing future flexibility.
Modular GTP comes with a host of other benefits including high productivity rates of up to 1000+ items/hour, ultra high pick accuracy, full redundancy, and space efficiency. And it is backed by Dematic's unrivalled integration experience, local software development, and comprehensive service network.
