- Zone Picking Systems: Beautiful and ComplicatedZone picking systems (often called zone routing systems) have been around for decades. And yet, it seems they are being underappreciated these days. Part of the reason might be that few people understand how they work and how their potential can be tapped. And just to get this straight: everybody […]

I will explain why this particular type of automated storage and retrieval systems poses certain problems for eGrocery picking, and I will compare them to alternative concepts like AutoStore. It […]
- Finding the Right eGrocery SolutionFinding the right eGrocery solution is a struggle for many retailers. eGrocery is a comparatively new industry in the logistics automation world. At the same time, it is the industry with the very highest requirements on the design of logistics systems. No dominant solution design has emerged, so different solutions – and not only solutions, but entire concepts, including selection of the right location and distribution concept (e.g., hub and spoke vs. direct delivery, transportation in frames vs. transportation on dolleys or pallets vs. floor loading) – can be found in practice. This article provides an overview of different solution concepts and when they fit best.
- A Note on Goods-to-Robot PickingFor this year’s Logimat, many logistics automation companies’ focus was on showcasing their capabilities in the domain of robotic piece picking, usually incorporated in some type of goods-to-robot station. If we think about it carefully, however, we may find that by introducing robotic piece picking stations we are attempting to fix the non-broken part.
- The Risk of Large ProjectsLarge automation projects seem risky and frequently turn out unprofitable. This article investigates the underlying reasons of this phenomenon.
- A Typology of eGrocery CompaniesIn the online grocery industry, there are really three types of different companies, all of which behave quite distinct. This is important to understand for MHE providers and consultants, and it is just as important to understand for these companies that they have strange (from their respective perspective) siblings from whom they could nonetheless learn something. This short article provides an overview.
- Important TerminologyOn numerous occasions, we have observed how careless use of language and technical terms has led to problems, both technical and legal. Because cause and effect are separated by a time delay, often several months, people tend not to learn from their mistakes. Lawyers are trained in using precise language […]
