Parfums Christian Dior was looking for a solution that would provide both efficiency with quality and chose an automation solution by Knapp. A combination of shuttle and robot technology ensures that shop orders, retailer orders and individual deliveries can all be fulfilled in the international distribution centre in Saint Jean de Braye, France.
The automation made possible through the combination of an OSR Shuttle system and robot technology also permitted Parfums Christian Dior to reduce the storage areas and logistics processes. The OSR Shuttle stores 90 % of the article range securely and space-effectively. In addition to omni-channel picking of full cases for the B2B business and single items for B2C orders, the shuttle system also provides temporary storage and sequences the orders prior to outbound delivery.
What’s more, the OSR Shuttle system also guarantees an even distribution of the workload between the eight ergonomic Pick-it-Easy work stations. Here, diverse tasks including picking, storage, merging, inventory and other value-added services can be carried out ergonomically. The integrated software solution KiSoft provides Parfums Christian Dior with a complete overview and access to the entire article range.
Robots take care of picking and mandatory labelling of the full cases. Combined with image recognition technology and the KiSoft Pack Master software, robots are also in place to form optimized pallets from various types of cartons.
