Magazine order picking

  1. 1. Bright ideas: The best magazine order picking solution
  2. 2. Magazine commissioning and distribution solution <ul><li>The sale and distribution of magazines is an increasingly demanding logistical process. An expanding range of different magazine titles pass through distribution centres , from which they need to be quickly shipped to a mass of retail outlets such as newsagents, bookstores, supermarkets and petrol stations. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Distribution centre staff must pick unique orders each day, dependent on the varying requirements of each of their retail outlet clients. Plus, retailers have the right to return any unsold magazines and be re-credited for items returned in good condition. </li></ul><ul><li>This complex flow of deliveries and returned stock places increasing demands on packaging in the supply chain. The industry is searching for new efficiencies and better handling solutions, while keeping the product in prime condition. Traditional magazine strapping methods no longer meet these demands, and increasingly plastic crates are replacing them. </li></ul><ul><li>This move towards more standardised packaging and application of ergonomic intelligence has dramatically improved efficiency, best working practice and health and safety. Valuable magazines are protected in transit and arrive in a neat stack, helping retailers and publishers. </li></ul><ul><li>This is the first edition of ‘Bright Ideas ’ in which improvements to the order picking process using plastic crates are explained. The following topics will be addressed in other editions: </li></ul><ul><li>Distribution </li></ul><ul><li>Handling </li></ul><ul><li>Returns </li></ul><ul><li>Advantages of CurTec’s solutions </li></ul>

  5. 5. <ul><li>Despite improvements through the use of plastic crates, many crates have a small base making them unstable when stacked in a pile. For drivers, delivering to between 80 and 100 locations, having to repeatedly secure the load consumes a lot of their valuable time. </li></ul><ul><li>CurTec’s plastic lidded crates provide a clever solution to this problem. Their ‘Lego’-style stacking system makes them sturdy when stacked. This is of great benefit in the warehouse, and to the delivery driver who does not waste time having to repeatedly secure the load. Order pickers need more time for stable stacking, unstable piles cause interference on the line and commissioning of the machine strap. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Major advantages of the CurTec magazine crates </li></ul><ul><li>This smart way of stacking reduces total cost by eliminating additional materials used in securing stacks, and increasing delivery efficiency. Major advantages of CurTec’s cases: </li></ul><ul><li>Ingenious ‘Lego’- style interlocking stacking system </li></ul><ul><li>Less conveyor belt interruption </li></ul><ul><li>All magazines can be kept in neat and stable stacks </li></ul><ul><li>Titles can be picked in any order </li></ul><ul><li>Additional fastening eliminated </li></ul><ul><li>Increased delivery efficiency through self-securing stacks </li></ul><ul><li>Smart and stable. Typical CurTec ! </li></ul>
