Shuttle launches multi SKUs

Tuko Logistics, a grocery storage, assortment, purchasing and logistics service provider in Finland, ordered Cimcorp 3D Shuttle to increase the efficiency of its logistics operation.

At Tuko, about 7,000 products are handled with the Cimcorp 3D Shuttle, raising the efficiency of order picking process and logistics to a new level.

“The process challenge for Tuko is the relatively wide SKU portfolio in relation to volumes and thus the high level of logistics costs,” says Petteri Pelkonen, chief executive of Tuko Logistics.

Markku Vesa, chief executive of Cimcorp, says: “The products to be picked are brought automatically to the order picker rather than the order picker having to go to the product.

“This enhances order picking effectiveness many times over and also improves order picking ergonomics.”
