Very few sectors are as dynamic, fast-paced and changeable as the e-commerce sector. Shopping has never been as easy, quick, individual and open to choice for consumers as it is today. The sales channel boundaries are no longer set in stone – providing consumers with a much richer shopping experience.
Speed, price and service are key to a successful online business. Same and next day delivery have long been the gold standards in online trade. KNAPP has extensive experience in single item picking and has made use of this in developing new solutions for e-commerce applications suitable for a range of sectors. Fundamental technologies are at the heart of these solutions, pooling and consolidating complex demands and processes within the warehouse. They make complexity simple and turn a distribution centre into a low complexity warehouse.
The shuttle family is one of the most important fundamental technologies in the low complexity warehouse. The high-performance OSR Shuttle™ Evo not only takes care of secure storing, buffering and sequencing flat-packed goods, it also replenishes and supplies picking areas. The free-moving Open Shuttles connect complex transport networks and can also handle express orders within the warehouse. The versatile Pick-it-Easy Workstations guarantee efficient and accurate picking. The goods-to-person principle is used to achieve optimal ergonomics and efficiency. Pick-it-Easy workstations can also register returns cost-effectively and reliably so that they are ready to be sold again in very little time. Value-added services such as adding catalogues are also integrated into the workflow at the Pick-it-Easy workstations. High-performance Pocket Sorters using RFID technology handle hanging goods effectively. Single items are sorted and sequenced according to individual specifications with the help of matrix sortation. A customized software solution from KNAPP optimizes the flow of goods and ensures short transit times in the low complexity warehouse.
The company operates from offices in Longpoint Building, Fourways/Sandton.
