Global logistics provider DB Schenker has chosen Conveyor Systems Limited to design and install an automated picking and replenishment system in Tamsworth.
The space efficient and solution CSL installed for DB Schenker eliminates the need for order pickers to carry totes from one warehouse floor to another, minimising the risk of accidents and injuries.
The conveyor system carries 15 pick totes per minute on two Interroll 24v zero pressure accumulating power roller conveyors, as well as two 6.5m high reversible spiral elevators.
Nick Morris, operations excellence manager at DB Schenker said: “The automated order picking and replenishment system from CSL has increased productivity by 5% for a team of eight pickers. Overall, a total of 832 working hours have been saved so far as a result.”
