- Recently honored with Innovation Award for improving warehouse
efficiency by Kings of the Supply Chain
XPO Logistics, a leading global provider of transportation and logistics solutions, will present its Pick and Put to Light system in the innovation gallery at SITL 2020 from March 17 to 20 in Paris. The technology recently received the prestigious Innovation Award at Kings of the Supply Chain 2020.
XPO developed Pick and Put to Light from the ground up in collaboration with technology partner Actemium Lyon Logistics, a member company of the global Actemium network dedicated to industrial process improvement. The solution uses color recognition to retrieve palletized products and route them within the warehouse, assisting employees with fulfilment processes. The technology is fully integrated with XPO’s warehouse management system.
A XPO desenvolveu o sistema “Pick and Put to Light” desde zero em colaboração com o seu sócio tecnológico Actemium Lyon Logistics, que é uma empresa membro da rede mundial Actemium dedicada ao aperfeiçoamento dos processos industriais. A solução utiliza o reconhecimento de cores para retirar as mercadorias em paletes e classificá-las por rota dentro do armazém, ajudando assim os funcionários nos processos de preparação. A tecnologia está totalmente integrada com o sistema de gestão de armazéns da XPO.
Richard Cawston, managing director, supply chain – Europe, XPO Logistics, said, “Pick and Put to Light is an industry-first technology that improves service quality while enhancing the workplace for logistics employees.
