At booth #7605, TGW will be putting the spotlight on its comprehensive solution portfolio – namely by showing FlashPick®, the smart one-stop system for automated split case picking. At the booth, visitors will get the chance to learn about the advantages of FlashPick® and get a hands-on experience to test the performance capability of the TGW PickCenter One Goods-to-Person workstation.

FlashPick® – smart piece-picking system
At Modex 2020, TGW puts a special focus on FlashPick®, the smart Order Fulfillment System for automated split case picking. FlashPick® combines TGW‘s leading technology into one system: The TGW Warehouse Software manages specific business requirements and material flow. SKU totes are stored and retrieved from the shuttle system and routed via the conveyor network to either manual or robotic picking workstations. Orders arrive perfectly sequenced at the pick position. After the pick, SKU totes return to the shuttle system, while orders can be routed towards shipping. Contrary to batch picking, FlashPick® processes individual orders – and in doing so, raises the bar for performance, speed and flexibility.
“FlashPick® offers high flexibility for business models with rapid changes to SKUs, product lines and order structures,” underscores Chad Zollman, Chief Sales Officer North America of TGW Logistics Group. “FlashPick® caters to both Retail/Wholesale and E-commerce orders – making it a great option for omni-channel business models.”
A core element of FlashPick® is the ergonomic PickCenter One, which will be showcased at Modex. The design of the picking workstation is based on the concept: one source tote, one target tote. PickCenter One allows fast, accurate picking and removes all walking, thus operators work with optimal efficiency. The intelligent sequencing feature, which continuously feeds the workstation with a sufficient number of totes, enables a pick rate of up to 600 picks per hour.
