Customers want their orders fast, omni-channel fulfilment is a competitive advantage, managing high return rates is expensive and labour is hard to come by. These and other realities are all creating new and unique pressures within the order fulfilment environment.
Dematic Pouch Sorter is a flexible storage system that consists of pouches suspended from rolling adapters running in a track. Each pouch carries a single item, which can be identified by its radio frequency identification (RFID) tag. Items of various types can go into the pouches, including folded garments, shoeboxes, accessories, books and general merchandise.
Items are inducted into the pouch system, which sorts, sequences and delivers those pouches and hanging items to the packaging station for consolidation and further processing.
