Materials handling equipment distributor TVH has selected a TGW Logistics Stingray shuttle and goods-to-person solution to support the growth in its primary fulfilment centre in Olathe, Kansas, US.
The TGW system, worth $ 8.7 million, was developed alongside a similar solution currently being installed by TGW in a new TVH distribution facility in Waregem, Belgium.
TGW was challenged to develop a solution that would provide very dense cubic storage on a compressed floor space footprint.
The 5-aisle Stingray shuttle system is expandable to 10-aisles, and will feed SKU totes to ergonomically designed picking stations. The completely automated system will deliver parts directly to the picker and return to storage. All completed orders will be automatically dispatched to shipping.
