In the central warehouse, mobile printers have been installed on trucks and stackers, and in Fleggaard's 17 stores there have been delivered PDAs to control all product registration - an upgrade that makes the overall business more competitive and efficient. The mobility releases time for other tasks as well as a greater overview for the individual employee.
In Fleggaard's 19,000 m2 central warehouse, only 10 km away from the group's largest store in Harrislee, south of the Danish-German border, they have recently introduced mobile printers mounted on trucks and stackers. The idea is, that the employees can pick and pack the order and then, print and apply the barcode label to the pallet wherever they are. Then, they must leave the pallet for later pickup and shipment. A pallet truck with space for three pallets will periodically pick up the finished pallets around the warehouse and get them shipped.
- The warehouse is very large and a lot of time is spent when employees have to drive from one end of the warehouse to another. Today, employees often pick an order at one end of the warehouse and then, drive the long trip back to the shipment area to print and apply a barcode label. The workflow can be done both better, smarter and more efficiently with the new mobile solution, says Jørgen Jonstrup, Warehouse and Logistics Manager at Fleggaard's central warehouse.
By mid-2017, Fleggaard and Delfi Technologies, had a dialogue where mobile printers quickly became the essence of a forthcoming efficient mobile solution for the central warehouse.
