The CarryPick solution will consist of 65 Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs), 1,500 mobile racking units and seven ergonomic workstations, installed together with Swisslog's proprietary control systems, WarehouseManager.
This is the first time that the full scale CarryPick solution will be implemented; designed together with DB Schenker Logistics to provide Lekmer.com with an automated supply chain delivering faster order processing, higher quality and lower handling costs.
