The lifting beam module combines compact storage of unit loads with highly dynamic storage and retrieval capabilities. Its responsiveness combined with its small footprint makes this an ideal buffering solution to decouple the picking and outbound processes.
When implemented as an outbound buffer, it improves the order picking efficiency while also consolidating finished orders into shipments. The module releases shipments quickly and in the right sequence per route/per truckload to optimize transit times.
The buffer can be implemented as an individual compact system or integrated into a complete logistics system. At Inther we have extensive experience in providing the controls for buffering solutions. Use of the Inther LC software suite opens up the availability of additional functionalities such as customized sorting and sequencing in the case of priority orders.
