DB Schenker has successfully implemented in its Arlandastad Logistics Center, near Stockholm, Sweden, the CarryPick automated online order fulfillment and returns handling solution for Lekmer.com, Scandinavia’s largest online toy retailer.
Core of the new system are 65 self-moving robots (Automated Guided Vehicles – AGV) which handle 1,550 mobile racks, managing 35,000 different articles and up to 40,000 orderlines per day. Covering more than 6,000 square meters warehouse space, the solution today is probably the biggest of its kind, wordwide.
Due to its modular design the 24/7 solution can be expanded to face seasonable peaks or growth in the customer´s business and runs on an intelligent software that has been linked to DB Schenker’s own warehouse management system. This connection, which has been created by the inhouse IT experts using standard IT interfaces, will facilitate the installation of the solution at other DB Schenker locations as well as for new customers.
The new solution design will strengthen DB Schenker´s position in the e-commerce market and has been driven by DB Schenker’s Innovation & Solutions Program, following the company’s focus on Logistics 4.0 strategy: through actively driving digitalization and investing in innovative future proof technologies, DB Schenker is setting new standards in managing the supply chains of customers around the world.
