Grey­or­ange en­ables sup­ply chain au­toma­tion with Lin­ear Sorter

Progressive Grocer (India) - - Market Update -

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.
