KNAPP pocket sorter technology is in use at the Berlin distribution centre of Asos. This follows implementation of the system at the pureplay’s UK DC in Barnsley.
The heart of the solution is an OSR Shuttle store, which ensures both the flexibility required by the frequently changing article range and error-free picking at the Pick-it-Easy workstations.
Heimo Robosch, Executive Vice President, KNAPP, says: “At the pack stations, we only provide the items that belong to one individual customer order for picking from the pockets. The next order then arrives once the previous pack order has been completed. The streamlining of all processes results in a reduction in costs as well as an optimised transit time, both crucial to e-commerce businesses.”
