Londis has announced a €650,000 investment in a voice picking system for its warehouse and distribution facility located at the group’s headquarters in Johnstown, Co Kildare. The joint initiative between ADM Londis and TDG Logistics has produced a new hands-free voice picking system to be implemented in the 90,000 sq ft warehouse.
With the new system warehouse staff can select products identified by a voice picking system. The hands-free headsets enable them to simply follow the voice directions which outline the next item to be picked, with specific instructions as to its location and product quantity required, allowing them to concentrate completely on the task of product picking.
The voice picking warehouse management system has resulted in improved picking accuracy, reduced mispicks as well as improved the sequence of picking around the warehouse. The net result has been an improvement to the overall service levels to ADM Londis customers. Further, claims are down by over 50% and breakages in deliveries are down by around 10%.
