ATLANTA – Vanderlande, the global partner for future-proof warehouse solutions, today invited ProMat 2023 attendees to learn about the technologies, services and expertise relied on in many of the world’s most advanced warehouses and distribution centers (DCs). Located in booth #S603, Vanderlande will be showcasing ‘Warehousing Answered’ solutions with demonstrations of a modular workstation leveraging an item-picking robot and thought-leadership keynotes presentations from Ken Hughes, one of the world’s leading authorities on the behaviors of consumers, and innovations and trends shaping the industry.
“Dynamic retailers, e-commerce, and omnichannel businesses must address greater complexity in their materials handling and fulfillment operations than ever before to stay in front of constantly evolving consumer preferences,” said Terry Verkuijlen, executive vice president of warehouse solutions at Vanderlande. “We believe that solving these challenges requires a thoughtful approach, spurred by asking the right questions and developing a deep understanding of each business’ unique requirements, and exploring future scenarios of these requirements, in order to identify the right solutions to address their needs. As a result of this partnership mindset, our organization has deep experience uncovering the root source of pain points and developing future-proof, scalable systems for DCs. This holistic approach to next-generation warehousing is crucial for success.”
At ProMat, Vanderlande will exhibit some of the transformative warehouse automation solutions that can be leveraged to address the industry’s complexity, including:
- FASTPICK: Vanderlande’s advanced suite of goods-to-person picking solutions, which allows DCs to handle greater SKU volumes with enhanced throughput and increased order accuracy while lowering costs. Modular in design, FASTPICK includes Goods-to-Picker (GtP) 2.0 and ADAPTO.
- GtP 2.0: The second generation of Vanderlande’s modular workstation is designed to simplify the picking process. Leveraging the benefits of 1:1 picking and exceptional ergonomics, it improves pick performance while reducing errors and training. With a highly intuitive interface, employees can be trained to use this scalable solution in just minutes. This solution also improves efficiency and accuracy all while helping organizations mitigate scarce labor resources. At ProMat, Vanderlande will have a physical demo of this workstation integrated with a robotic piece-picking arm from RightHand Robotics showing how organizations are empowered to gain Goods-to-Robot capabilities in a highly configurable solution.
- ADAPTO: A roaming shuttle-based automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS), ADAPTO’s advanced sorting and sequencing capabilities work with a variety of cartons, trays and totes. ADAPTO dramatically accelerates picking operations and enables operations to reduce the footprint of their facilities, while increasing storage densities and optimizing the movement of inventory. It offers unrivaled flexibility and scalability to help operations adapt to changing market dynamics.
- Software: Attendees can also view digital demonstrations of the intelligent warehouse automation software that controls Vanderlande’s highly integrated solutions, including the FASTPICK Goods-to-Picker. The company’s comprehensive software stack is data-driven and features scalable capabilities that enhance the visibility and control of operations through productivity boosting adjustments and upgrades to equipment, processes and workflows. Notably, the software shortens the implementation period and allows easy and seamless upgrades, enabling businesses to stay nimble.
Additionally, attendees are also invited to attend interactive keynote addresses and fireside chat presentations by Ken Hughes, to gain insights into modern consumer values that shape the future of warehousing. Some of the topics Hughes will cover include how the shifting values of consumers will impact the warehouse solutions of tomorrow, how supply chains can harness consumer collaboration, how supply chain and delivery have become a core part of the consumer value proposition, and consumers’ expectations around digital innovations, AI and robotics.
