Beumer Group’s BG Pouch System can meet the growing demands of e-commerce fulfillment – and the combination of retail and D2C. The operator benefits from simplified returns handling because dynamic buffering eliminates the need for re-storage and picking. The sorter increases throughput by 25 percent compared to conventional pocket sorters. It requires little space and is suitable for a wide range of items – from high-tech to high heels.
This innovative system, which was developed in response to shifting market trends and customer demands, expands Beumer Group’s offering for the warehouse and distribution industry. Making great use of available space, the BG Pouch System can be installed in unused overhead areas where single items can be buffered, sorted and sequenced to automate the order handling and returns processes, reducing floor space requirements by up to 30 percent. The modularity of the system means that it can easily be scaled up with minimal installation time.
The system features a capacity of 10,000 items per hour per sortation module, allowing logistics centres to flatten their handling peaks and reduce the amount of manual handling to improve overall logistics efficiency.
