Moving away from individual knowledge and towards system-supported real-time posting of all goods movements. This was the overall project goal. Pre-picking of sales orders can be done even faster and at the same time error-free with the forklift guidance system including GPS tracking. In this process, when products are assembled for a sales order, the goods are first taken to a picking station. Afterward, when scanning the goods, the system automatically generates a new order, and the new order-specific pallet is labeled with a unique pallet ID. The identification numbers contain all relevant data and, if necessary, allow for the blocking of individual batches. The L-mobile solution also made it possible to fully map plant-to-plant traffic and the purchasing of retail goods on the process side.
Mr. Eberhard, Managing Director at Birkenmeier stein+design, is very satisfied with the solution going live. On average, there are approximately 250 postings with a goods value of up to €200,000 each day, which can now be picked and loaded very efficiently. Furthermore, Mr. Eberhard praises the project team for their consistent flexibility in responding to new requirements within the ongoing project and their continual ability to identify swift solutions.
“L-mobile has extensive expertise in the field of mobile scanner solutions in combination with modern tracking technologies. Furthermore, the size of the project team and L-mobile’s longstanding presence on the market were the key factors in our decision to choose L-mobile as our solution provider,” said Mr. Eberhard.
