IBCS POLAND SPÓŁKA Z OGRANICZONĄ ODPOWIEDZIALNOŚCIĄ realizuje projekt dofinansowany z Funduszy Europejskich pn. „ibcsDock/ibcsCloud: zautomatyzowany system rejestracji przepływu towarów w magazynie”.
KONSHURT is a manufacturer and distributor operating in the food industry. The company has been operating on the market for 30 years. It specializes in providing customers with products with an extended shelf life, such as canned poultry, meat and fish. The company is a leader on the Polish market in its category.
Modern central warehouse is located in Częstochowa. In addition, the company has two branches – in Koszalin and in Jarosław. For efficient customer service, Konshurt uses its own specialized transport fleet and cooperation with forwarding companies.
As assumed, work ergonomics improved, the number of errors decreased, and warehouse processes were optimised. The pick-by-voice technology has also contributed to speeding up the collection and dispensing stages, as well as increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of picking.
The diversity of the assortment is a huge challenge. The variety of KONSHURT offer is evidenced by the fact that a large number of various types of products are sold daily, which means the need to handle many orders of this type.
Another challenge is the release process, especially the pallet building phase, as hard and heavy goods must be placed on the bottom layer of the pallet and light, fragile and irregularly shaped goods on top.
In order to meet these challenges, solutions proposed by a team of IBCS Poland experts were implemented – IBCS Poland own solutions: ibcsTiger WMS system and ibcsVoice voice system.
The implementation of technological solutions proposed by the IBCS Poland team was divided into three main stages of implementation:
ibcsTiger WMS is connected via an interface with an external ERP system, with which it cooperates and exchanges messages on-line (i.e. in real time). To manage the work of the warehouse, it uses mobile terminals and label printers. An office user can use the www panel here.
During the implementation, a way of labeling goods was designed in accordance with the GS1 standard, which allowed for tracking each pallet of goods, along with its batch. GS1 labels containing the SSCC code are generated during the receipt of goods and the system uses them in every process carried out in the warehouse, i.e. putting away, transfers, picking, etc. : 02, 37, 10, etc.) Thanks to which we can track the flow of goods in the warehouse along with its attributes. Logistic labels are used for shipments of homogeneous pallets, especially to contractors (including retail chains) that require pallet marking using this standard, as well as have a specific template of such a label. In the case of deliveries to Biedronka chain, a label is used in accordance with the requirements of this network and containing, in addition to the SSCC number, also AI: 02, 37, 10, 17 (15)
The use of the solutions described here allowed KONSHURT to manage its warehouse space in real time, and the operation of the warehouse itself was optimized. Full control of all processes is carried out – from the moment of receiving the goods to their loading onto the means of transport. As a result, the comfort of work has improved – as have the quality of activities and the safety of the employees themselves.
When we look at the current logistics service for our entire company, we can see that the implementation of the solutions proposed by IBCS Poland has brought significant time savings. As assumed, work ergonomics improved, the number of errors decreased, and warehouse processes were optimised. Pick-by-voice technology also contributed to the acceleration of the collection and release of goods, as well as to the increase in efficiency and effectiveness of picking – emphasizes Mr. Łukasz Szecówka from KONSHURT.
