Newsletter Logistics Automation 02/2017

Dear readers,

Complete and accurate data plays an important role in logistics. As processes become more digitized, data volumes are increasing along with the risk associated with incorrect data. Uniform standards, centralized databases, and analysis tools can make a big difference in this area. But it takes humans to make it all work. They develop the technology and ensure that it is implemented and operated problem-free, on site and in real time. It is only since the emergence of the products-IT-services triad have complete Auto-ID solutions come to the forefront, with the ability to not only capture but also intelligently link data. Find out more in this latest issue of our newsletter.

“Happy reading” from your VITRONIC team!

SSI SCHAEFER Supplies Supermarket Distribution Center with VITRONIC Systems

VITRONIC will supply an innovative automated identification solution to SSI SCHAEFER in China. The camera-based systems will be installed this summer to ensure smooth operation in the Suguo distribution center in Nanjing, Eastern China. The Suguo supermarket chain belongs to Vanguard, one of the largest retail companies in China.

It will be equipped with three VITRONIC systems, which can read different address label barcodes on up to five sides of a package before the goods are sent through a shoe sorter. VITRONIC is implementing one system for a high-speed application with a throughput of up to 10,000 packages per hour.

Chronopost, the leading French specialist for express delivery of parcels, and VITRONIC can look back on ten years of successful cooperation in the French market. As early as 2007, VITRONIC installed the first four Auto-ID systems at the Chilly-Mazarin site near the Paris Orly Airport.
