Overhead Systems:

Dematic Pouch System

Space-Efficient Omni-Channel Solution

The Dematic Pouch System processes orders easily, quickly, and efficiently with minimum effort. This flexible overhead system uses pouches and hooks, each carrying a single item, suspended from rolling adapters that move along ceiling suspended rails.

The Dematic Pouch System can store, transport, sort, and sequence items, including garments on hangers, in support of pureplay e-Commerce and omni-channel order fulfilment. It can also store returned items and make them available for resale quickly.

Benefits of the Dematic Pouch System

  • Reduced Facility Footprint and Real-Estate Expenses: The Dematic Pouch System takes advantage of underused overhead space by combining storage, transport, and sorting functionality into a single, automated hanging system that stages, packages, and ships multi-line orders.
  • Single System Across All Channels: The Dematic Pouch System handles a wide range of order profiles out of a single warehouse — from small e-Commerce orders to large retail orders. Product is delivered to pack stations in aisle-friendly order or any other sequence (route, department, size, colour, etc.), simplifying store shelf restocking.
  • Efficient Returns Handling: The Dematic Pouch System provides a simple way to receive and store returned goods and seamlessly introduce them into the order fulfilment process.
  • Extended Order Cutoff Times: Dematic uses patented waveless software to dynamically prioritize work and route products for rapid order fulfilment, extending order cutoff times while ensuring on-time shipment.
  • Improved Order Accuracy, Reduced Labour Costs: The Dematic Pouch System minimizes human touches by combining storage, sortation, and transportation into a single integrated system. Each item is tracked using RFID technology to ensure accuracy.
  • A Pleasant Work Environment: The plastic rolling friction chain technology of the Dematic Pouch System creates quiet and efficient operation with best-in-class sound reduction and power consumption.
