  • Dematic Mixed Case Fulfilmentdelivers efficiency in the entire distribution centre to retail and grocery replenishment supply chain. The solution is fully automated and creates mixed case pallets and loads following specific business rules such as: by retail shop aisles, family group, heavy items on bottom, and by layers for route delivery sequence generating savings in the distribution centre, transport, and store operations cost centres.
  • Dematic Depalletizer/Palletizeris a robotics system that provides dual functionality by operating as both a palletiser and depalletiser. The system can, for example, depalletise inbound inventory on a first shift and palletise outbound orders on a second shift.
