Greyorange enables supply chain automation with Linear Sorter
Robotics and supply chain automation company Greyorange has announced the installation of its latest Linear Sorter at an international fashion company that provides fashion clothing and accessories across India. High-speed Linear Sorters are commonly used by e-commerce and third-party logistics companies to sort large volumes of parcels for distribution throughout the country. However, what is unique is that this Sorter located at a new distribution centre in Maharashtra will be used as an Order Consolidation Item Sorter for store retail distribution. It will sort and consolidate fashion items for distribution to over 500 locations in India, comprising exclusive brand outlets and shop-in-shop multibrand stores. In addition, the Sorter will handle the segregation of returns inventory as this simplifies a series of time-consuming tasks handled manually. The team at Greyorange evaluated the challenging requirements to handle large numbers of SKUS and achieve a high throughput during each shift. Equipped with advanced software, the Sorter uses hardware to adapt widely to the customised configurations built to handle daily requirements - such automation contributes immensely in improving productivity.
