Split case order fulfilment operations are no longer restrained to slow movers or expensive articles in retail distribution. Direct (e-comm) and omni-channel distribution have changed this picture dramatically. Consumers order only one or – in best case – a couple of pieces per article, and shops are evolving towards wider product range and less quantity available per stock-keeping unit (SKU), increasing the demand for this type of operation in any industry.

TGW offers you a comprehensive portfolio of solutions when split case operations are required: solutions based on Goods-to-Person, Person-to-Goods or a combination of the two systems to treat each article in the most cost-effective way. The categorisation is based on the SKU consumption and its dimensions.

The boundaries of this system depend mainly on factors like:

  • Labour cost
  • Operator productivity
  • Building costs (i.e. price per square metre)

Based on your specific requirements, TGW will customise your solution to deliver optimum performance of your order fulfilment operation.
