To handle the complicated split picking process of pharma warehousing, the modern logistics center of Sichuan Kelun Medicine & Trade has adopted the multi-level AS/RS shuttle system developed by HWArobotics, using 78 SLS320 standard case-handling shuttles to manage the inbound and outbound flows in a 6-aisle AS/RS containing 33,000+ storage units. This helps enable goods-to-person automatic split picking and a system compound throughput of up to 6,000 bins per hour.
The pharmaceutical warehousing logistics center is also equipped with advanced logistics facilities and equipment such as PGC500 modular conveyors, PSD310 double-layer sorters, flow racks, shelf racks, RFID, inspecting and packing stations, automatic labeling machines, spiral lifts, and high-speed sorters. In addition, the order processing system (OPS), warehouse equipment control system (WCS), and warehouse operation management system (WMS) add efficiency and intelligence to the entire split picking process, taking it to a truly high level in the world.
