Home' MHD Supply Chain Solutions : MHD JULY-AUGUST Contents 3. Hanging garments: replenishment and storage
A separate warehouse area is available for
hanging garments. The clothes items are stored
in clothes bags on hangers, and the items are
picked manually on a mezzanine floor.
The three sales flows are as follows:
1. Store network: stores of the branch office
network within France receive deliveries on a
2. Export: some stores outside of France receive
deliveries every day, the remaining stores
once every week.
3. E-commerce: for the most part in the online
mail-order business, several items are
ordered separately, and processing is usually
carried out within a single day.
The KNAPP solution won over celio* with its
end-to-end system approach, with the OSR
Shuttle and the Split Tray Sorter taking centre
stage. The modular solution has a clever set-up
to automate those areas in which automated
processes are useful, and to make processes
in the manual work ergonomical and highly
efficient. The system adapts flexibly to the
changing order structures, and achieves the
highest-possible ROI with investment expenses
The following KNAPP Group systems ensure
smooth processes for celio*:
• Warehouse control system KiSoft WCS.
• Modular overhead conveyor by Dürkopp
• Split Tray Sorter with 680 outlets.
• OSR Shuttle with 22,400 storage locations
and KiSoft SRC.
• Eight ergonomic Pick-it-Easy workstations.
• High-performance KNAPP conveyor system.
• 23,936 pallet storage locations.
• Two each of automatic carton closers
and sealers, label printers, and automatic
Folded garments area, goods-in
The goods are delivered by trucks and largely
arrive on pallets, and are transported to goods-in
over ramps. A weighbridge registers the weight
of the goods and the delivered goods are regis-
tered in the WMS system. The WMS allocates
an adequate storage location to each article,
either on static racks or high-bay pallet racking.
OSR Shuttle &
Pick-it-Easy work stations
The OSR Shuttle has two rack lines, 20 levels
and provides space for 22,400 containers,
each with a load capacity of up to 35kg. A
shuttle runs on each level of the racking, and
stores and retrieves containers. Partial cartons
are stored in the OSR Shuttle in a safe and
space-effective manner. For ergonomic and
error-free picking, eight Pick-it-Easy work
stations are available. Staff prepare goods at
the Pick-it-Easy workstations, which are then
supplied to the Split Tray Sorter.
The design of the workstations in the Pick-
it-Easy series is based on the latest research in
occupational health and safety, and combine
efficiency and ergonomics into a unique
workstation. Picking is performed via goods-
to-person: the required storage containers are
automatically retrieved from the shuttle system
and provided to the Pick-it-Easy workstations,
with the containers being always delivered at
the optimal height and in optimal reach. Staff
members take the required items from the con-
tainers and place them in the picking container.
Pick-to-Light displays support pickers in efficient
order processing, making it possible to process
800 items per hour. The user interfaces at the
Pick-it-Easy work stations are simple and users
can work with them using the touch-screens.
In designing the celio* warehouse, there
was strong focus on an end-to-end colour and
design concept. The company colours of red,
grey, black and white are used throughout the
warehouse. The Pick-it-Easy workstations and
the shuttle system, including containers, are
designed with this colour scheme.
