Connected Logistics - Introduction of the control software "TransportControl" at the Irapuato location in Mexico
NEW PROJECT OF GS FLEETCONTROL GmbH IN IRAPUATO MEXICO
Integration of TransportControl in Irapuato
In Irapuato, the picking process of refrigerated milk products is to be supported by AGVs. The walking distances of the employees will be shortened and the picking performance will be increased.
In the first phase, six AGVs will be integrated to improve the picking process. The picker is assigned certain zones, unlike in a round trip, in which he then moves freely to load the AGV's with the required goods.
The AGVs are controlled by TransportControl in such a way that they only have to stop in zones in which picks are also required. This greatly reduces the waiting time in each picking area.
The pick orders, which are transmitted by the customer via the EDI interface, are prepared adaptively in the Schnellecke Warehouse Management System "SWMS" and made available to TransportControl via a standardised interface. This then creates corresponding jobs from the orders.
