An Integrated WMS for a Small Items Distribution Center
SSI Schaefer installed 6 sorters in order to increase picking and goods out performance for Reyher. Up to 3,000 bins with goods can be buffered.
With a handling capacity of approximately 160 double cycles per hour, 1,800 bins per hour can be handled during peak times. In order to further expand the pick performance of the manual small part storage with 7 aisles it was automated and the storage capacity of bins was increased up to 120,000.
Everything is controlled by a warehouse management system developed by SSI Schafer integrated into the existing SAP system. The site is managing several warehouse areas the system also controls all goods in and out, picking and the flow of material.
The Automated Systems Division of SSI Schaefer US is headquartered in Charlotte, NC.
