platbricks Modernizes the Picking Process at a Global Automotive Manufacturer
In 2018, one of the world's largest automakers officially opened a new plant in Ladson, South Carolina (USA). Shortly after opening, the automaker was awarded a major project by Amazon that included 20000 cars to expand its delivery service. To successfully execute this significant order, the automaker wanted to improve its internal logistics processes.
A detail-focused concept for internal processes and IT was developed and implemented thanks to platbricks - the Arvato Smart Logistics Platform. Also, interface connections of portable devices with the Manufacturing Execution System were established, the Arvato Smart Logistics Platform app was introduced and a path-optimized sorting of order items was implemented. After the final practical tests and training of the employees, the project was completed successfully.
