Consumer behaviour around the world is changing due to the increasing digitisation. Whether e-commerce retailers are new start-ups or giant online stores, they must compete on more than just price. The speed of delivery plays an increasingly important role in customer satisfaction.

In order to improve logistics processes, companies are increasing warehouse space and optimizing inventory. A recent report by international consultancy Savills indicates that between 2021 and 2025, courier companies in Europe will need an additional 8.6 million square metres of warehouse space to keep pace with the growing demand in the e-commerce sector. Therefore, e-commerce requires intelligent and reliable load carriers for efficient picking, handling and distribution.

Planning a smooth process, from people to goods

If you are responsible for logistics processes, you know how essential it is to periodically review your internal logistics processes for gaps and opportunities for optimisation. The process includes sorting, picking, packing, and shipping goods.

According to the product range and the needs of customers, order picking can be done either semi-automatically or manually. Combining these two systems is also possible, which can be used in conjunction with parallel order picking systems. No matter what systems you use, we will help you quickly prepare your goods from stock. This is made possible by different types of picking trolleys working at every stage of preparing products for shipment.

Collection area

When goods are received, they need to be checked immediately and then promptly booked in, whether they are scheduled orders or unexpected returns. It is a good idea to prepare a mobile workstation directly at the unloading point to avoid unnecessary long distances.

The goods often need to be unpacked before further transportation. These roll containers are ideal for disposal or for storing small goods, such as cardboard boxes and film, since they are easily accessible and have a high capacity. For example, the 4 sided roll container can be used as a waste container. It is available in a height of 1620mm with two folding flaps at the front and a set of wheels with brake. It is ideal for internal transport and supply chain operations.
