The Problem & Proposed Solution
Prior to the introduction of our solution, Syspex employed a manual picking system, which was the cause of low productivity and efficiency.
Upon understanding their concerns, Linde Singapore introduced Linde’s Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) Navigation System to them.
Linde’s VNA Navigation System increases handling performance and, at the same time, ensures secure storing and removal of stock by preventing errors. Work is therefore made easier for the driver, allowing increased work efficiency and the possibility for new drivers to quickly familiarise themselves with work, which contributes to even more work productivity and efficiency.
In addition, operation of the VNA Navigation System is fast, precise, and simple.
Linde’s VNA Navigation System taps on customers’ Warehouse Management System (WMS) to identify the position of the truck and the next pick-up/drop location by using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device) tags and bar codes. With this, misplacement of pallets is avoided, therefore providing the exact and optimal approach to identifying pallet location.
After implementation of our proposed solution, Syspex experienced a 25% increase in productivity, allowing them to better manage their operations and cost!
