EcoPocket™ combines garments on hangers (GOH) and flat folded goods (FFG) in one system. The loading of EcoPocket™ takes place at different locations within the warehouse, compensating different picking speeds. The system forms buffers in order to carry out waves regardless of the picking progress. The buffer option can also be used for efficient integration of returned goods or fast-moving items in order to increase the efficiency of the fulfillment center. EcoPocket™ sequences the individual bags in the system and directs them to the packing stations in the correct order.Show product
