Automated full case picking system

TGW mixed case palletising is a fully automated full case picking system designed to optimise the order fulfilment operation for full case retail distribution. It also eliminates the arduous task of manually picking full cases onto pallets.

System description

Everything starts at the pallet high bay warehouse where full pallets are stored and retrieved for de-palletising in case the stock level in the mini-load warehouse has reached a minimum or the order forecast requires it.

The de-palletised cases will be singularised and stored in a shuttle based automatic warehouse, for further disposal of the order fulfilment process. Once orders from the stores are known, the TGW PackPattern software calculates each pallet content based on various factors such as store layout, pallet stability and density etc. Based on order priority and delivery routes, the system will retrieve the cases in the demanded sequence for the AutoStax palletiser. Pallets are stretch-wrapped just after palletising for secure transport to the stores.
