The Sky’s the Limit With Metalsistem Shelving


Metalsistem’s multi-tiered structures are designed to increase the utilisation of the full warehouse height, as well as minimise the floor space required. The multi-tier structure is a fantastic floor saver that creates a dynamic picking module, which can be incorporated into your day-to-day stock picking.

Metalsistem’s multi-tiered structures are available with walkways, complete with steel flooring, available in a variety of finishes such as perforated floor, ribbed floor, anti slip floor, etc.

The multi-tiered structures can be designed to include guide rails, loading gates and  staircases, all incorporated into the structure and not as a free-standing afterthought. The flexibility and the modularity of the structure also allows for the incorporation of lifts and conveyor systems into the structure with minimal interruption.

There is a vast range of accessories available in the Super 123 and UNIRACK systems that can be incorporated into the multi-tiered structures as well, and can be used for small part storage, stock separation, or simple book stoppers.

The two- or three-tier structures are available in a great variety of configurations, from simple to complex, and have been designed to combine light weight with high strength in the best Metalsistem tradition, with no bolts, nuts or welding required.

100% Error-Free Picking with KiSoft Vision


KiSoft Vision is the first optically guided picking system where virtual information appears directly in the field of view of the operator wearing a head-mounted display. The integrated navigation system leads the way to the target storage location, where products to be picked are optically highlighted. An integrated camera registers barcodes, lot and serial numbers during the picking process. Extra steps for acknowledgement are completely eliminated.

Introducing optical technologies in picking makes it possible to raise process quality in the entire warehouse to new levels. KNAPP offers customers 100% error-free picking through the right combination of processes and technology. Any errors that may occur are identified on the spot and can be immediately corrected. Complicated error detection at the end of processes is eliminated along with the connected high cost of error correction.


KiSoft Vision in real warehouse operation started in June 2011 at a reference customer. In this case, KiSoft Vision is used as a picking system in the manual picking area and for 100% checks at an OSR Shuttle work station. The integration of KiSoft Vision improves performance as well as the quality of the picking process. Serial numbers can also be automatically captured without extra work.


The KNAPP group is one of the world's leading suppliers of all-in-one intralogistics solutions and turnkey systems in warehouse logistics and warehouse automation. With more than 1,400 active systems and one new startup every four days, KNAPP is the leading European software provider for high-performance logistics solutions.

The Ultimate Supply Chain Experience Is Coming

Starting March 14, Australian businesses are set to experience the international Supply Chain phenomenon that since 2008 has engaged supply chain professionals from the world’s largest organisations in eight different countries. ‘The Fresh Connection’ is a cross-functional business simulation that tests participants’ knowledge of the supply chain, assists with building stronger cross-functional teams, makes evident the benefits of integrated decision making processes (S&OP), and enables a greater understanding of the trade-offs that exist in the modern day supply chain.

With interest in the Australian competition surging and the likes of Orica, Dell, Philip Morris, and DB Schenker already registered, the inaugural Australian competition is shaping up as an exceptional opportunity for organisations to test what they know about supply chain management, with the aim of becoming recognised as Australia’s best supply chain team.

How it works

7 weeks of sophisticated learning to find the nation’s leading supply chain team


  • No. of people per team: 4 (a representative from purchasing, sales, supply chain, and operations).

  • Time required per week/round: between 1 and 2 hours.

  • Start date: 14 March, 2011

The challenge

For seven weeks, teams will be challenged to negotiate the best contracts with suppliers, minimise inventory investment, balance risks with opportunity, manage customer relationships, and implement the best supply chain strategy to save The Fresh Connection company. Once profitable, The Fresh Connection company, due to poor strategic and tactical supply chain decisions, is on the brink of financial ruin and in desperate need of a complete transformation of its supply chain

The prizes for the winner

  • The prestige of being recognised as Australia’s best supply chain team.

  • A trip to Italy to represent Australia in The Fresh Connection Global Final.
