Vanderlande helps Samsung relocate MHS to Netherlands

Samsung has relocated its distribution centre, which deals in small electronics and spare parts, from the UK to Breda, the Netherlands. The company chose Vanderlande materials handling system for the new site.
The heart of the new material handling system is the Vision.Xdock controls software, which manages the sortation process in real-time, together with the Crossorter shipping sorter.
Orders are picked with order carts on three levels, based on a batch picking concept. Products are transported via a central take-away conveyor to several packing stations. After packing, products are manually inducted onto the Crossorter, scanned and sorted to one of 200 outfeeds. Full cartons are collected at a central location, where lids and labels are applied.
