Nestled in a corner of an industry-leading home store, a micro-fulfillment center takes up less than 7% of the store’s footprint. But within that compact space, you’ll find enough high-density storage to accommodate three different types of storage mediums, a mix of autonomous robots, and two robotics-supported goods-to-person (GTP) stations.
The GTP stations process the company’s multi-line orders for items ranging from fast to slow movers, small to large items, and even conveyable and non-conveyable SKUs. They can also be used for induction, replenishment, picking, packing, and cycle counts.
For inventory that fits into totes, 3.1 meter tall shelf-picking robots are used in narrow-aisle, storage areas to pick from tall racking positions and convey them to and from the GTP stations as needed.
For larger items, or ones that are typically sold in multiples, low profile pallet mobile robots convey shelf units and/or pallet stands to the GTP stations from the same high-density storage area in which the shelf-picking robots are working.
In this seminar, we’ll take a look at how mixed robotics, innovative storage strategies, a single comprehensive layer of warehouse software, and, even a custom-made virtual reality instructional series for training new workers are enabling a global retailer to create in-store micro-fulfillment centers to better utilize its store network and enhance its customers’ shopping experience.
Presented from both the customer and provider viewpoints, this will be an insightful and information-packed seminar you won’t want to miss. So please join us!
