Vanderlande says Dutch supplier of fittings for sanitary installations and central heating Systems Bonfix has selected its goods-to-person (GtP) Fastpick for its new DC in the Netherlands city of Zwolle.
The logistics process automation company says Fastpick is based on its automated storage and retrieval system Adapto.
It notes Bonfix’s new building is expected to start operating in the first half of 2023 and will provide the high-storage density the company needs to process large volumes of items and cope with its rapid growth.
“For us, it’s about customer satisfaction,” Marcel. R Buul, Bonfix founder and owner, says.
“Bonfix has a strong reputation for the high level of service that we provide, and our aim is to enhance this with the Vanderlande solution,” he adds.
“We are confident that Fastpick will enable us to continue supplying our customers with what they need – and when they need it.”
Vanderlande says Fastpick delivers a high pick productivity as goods are transferred directly to operators by advanced Adapto shuttles, which holds more than 25,000 storage locations and has a capacity of 1000 order lines an hour.
It adds that it is the ideal solution to help Bonfix deliver on time and in full to its customers, as it can handle orders with extremely short lead times and eliminate errors with its one-to-one picking process.
“It’s great to see that our Fastpick solution is contributing to the growth ambitions of the family-owned company Bonfix,” Terry Verkuijlen, Vanderlande’s Executive Vice President Warehouse Solutions, says.
“This high-quality GtP system will enable the business to take a big step forward with its logistics services.”
Vanderlande says Fastpick Bonfix can expect maximum system availability because the system has no single point of failure and shuttles can be maintained offline.
Additionally, Bonfix warehouse operators will benefit from the comfort of three highly ergonomic GtP workstations while system performance and monitoring will be maintained by Vanderlande’s life-cycle services team once the system is commissioned.
