Customers want their orders fast, omnichannel fulfillment is a competitive advantage, managing high return rates is expensive, and labor is hard to come by. These and other realities are all creating new and unique pressures within the order fulfillment 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.
