Fiege Greven

Fiege Deutschland Stiftung & Co. KG is the pioneer in contract logistics offering its customers exactly the right customised logistics solutions that will optimise their efficiency and guarantee the supply of the market. Logistics of the same high quality lends a competitive edge to customers and defines the central theme which has helped FIEGE become one of the ten most powerful contract logistics providers in the European core market.

 

At its site in Greven the company operates a multi-user logistics centre. Since 1999 6,000 of its total 33,000 m² useable space has been reserved for a workwear retailer from Cologne.

Project aim

Fiege looked for logistics solutions for its customers that would guarantee 100% control of the single items while at the same time boosting efficiency. The times needed for accessing the available articles were to be greatly reduced so that orders coming in before 2:00 p.m. could be shipped on the same day.

Solution

Fiege operates a roll adapter system with sorter pockets. With this system garments can be buffered, sorted and supplied to the packing stations in the right sequence. The articles are placed into the individual sorter pockets at the charging station. The problem of tracking the pockets on the conveyor and sorting tracks was solved by the use of RFID technology, which ensures that all articles can be located in the system at all times. After the more than 2.5 million articles a year have been sorted they arrive at the packing stations sequenced according to order.

 

Only parts from the same order activated at the packing station are transported simultaneously to the unloading area where they are held ready for packing. Operators now remove and pack the goods – control information is displayed on a monitor. Once the shipping documents have been inserted and the address label applied the packages are sent to the shipping area.

Roll adapter

For many years now the roll adapter system has proved its strengths in the transportation and sorting of hanging garments. It is a reliable, efficient and flexible system made possible by a standardised adapter equipped with an RFID transponder. Loaded automatically with a hanger or fixed to a sorter bag, it moves via a rail system to various stations such as automatic storage, labelling stations, sequence sorters and packing stations.

Sorter Pocket

This system is also based on a roll adapter that is equipped with a special goods carrier – the sorter bag. Combined with the roll adapter the system also sorts articles such as shoes, books and foil-covered textiles – in fact anything that will fit into a normal shopping bag. Thanks to this combination it is now possible for the very first time to transport and sort both hanging and flat goods in a single system, a particularly interesting solution for the e-commerce sector.
