Efficient distribution logistics

Our solutions for distribution logistics

Finding the efficient route

The purpose of distribution logistics is to ensure goods reach customers in the right way – direct from production or via intermediate distribution stages. To meet increasing demands, now and in the future, you need a flexible system design, reliable, energy-efficient components and a high level of digital networking.

Key goals

Reducing CO2

The increasing pace of climate change has made reducing CO2 a key issue. All sensor data, including CO2 consumption, needs to be recorded to identify where it might be possible to make improvements.

Saving energy

As the height of logistics warehouses increases, so does their energy consumption. This calls for intelligent energy management.

End-to-end connectivity

Increasingly complex processes make seamless real-time traceability of system data and packages a must.

Increasing throughput

Logistics is already reaching its capacity limits. Cutting-edge technologies help boost system availability and throughput.

Flexible capacity adjustment

The requirements facing logistics companies are changing all the time, which makes flexible, quickly adaptable systems essential.

Horizontal diverter


With the help of the horizontal diverter, the material to be conveyed or the package from the material flow is distributed and steered in different directions.


Your requirements

  • Exact positioning
  • Limited space in the plant
  • Different sizes and weights depending on the material to be sorted
  • Control of high breakaway torques
  • Reduction of energy consumption

Package capture and positioning


In the package entry and package positioning, the most important data of the transported goods are recorded. This includes weight, dimensions of the packages, address data as well as the subsequent positioning.


Your requirements

  • High connectivity and networking
  • Exact positioning of the goods
  • Fast response time during the process
  • Reduction of energy requirements

Infeed


During infeed, all transport goods and packages are brought together and directed to the central main conveyor line.


Your requirements

  • Different sizes and weights depending on the goods to be sorted
  • Control of high breakaway torques
  • Dynamic cycle operation
  • Dynamic acceleration for infeed
  • Reduction of energy consumption despite cyclic operation

Outfeed


At the end of the logistical conveyor line, the packages are sorted by address and transferred to defined transfer and distribution stations.


Your requirements

  • Energy-efficient continuous operation
  • Long-life drive technology with specific design for continuous operation
  • Early detection of failures
