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.

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.
