1. Order picking

VanRiet has a proven track record in developing the order picking area in third-party logistics providers’ warehouses. Batch and zone picking are two popular techniques in these industries, depending on the client. More and more e-commerce clients opt for batch picking, whereas the flower industry often prefers zone picking. A batch- or zone-picking solution in combination with, for example, a voice-picking or pick-to-light system, will optimize your order-picking process. VanRiet can help you make the right decision.


2. Indoor conveying

Your intralogistic system is connected by conveyors, the veins of your solution. Therefor the conveyors should be reliable and easy to maintain. VanRiet offers a large variety of conveyors. Combi-drive belt conveyors, powered roller conveyors, fabric belt conveyors and modular belt conveyors are all part of VanRiet’s product portfolio. Our conveyors are developed to guarantee minimal downtime and easy maintenance.

3. Consolidation and packing

After the order-picking process, the products will be automatically transported to the consolidation area. In this area, all products are combined at the induction line and will be sorted to the correct packing table. Depending on the picking process, the products may be joined into different larger shipments before shipping them off.


4. Checking and identification

To keep track of your orders, you need tracking devices throughout the process. We design and integrate fully automatic identification, weighing, volume-scanning and dimensional weight-scanning equipment, with a legal-for-trade certification depending on your application. VanRiet only integrates A-brand identification equipment to ensure minimal “no-read” levels, as well as optimal sortation quality and efficiency.


5. Sorting

Sorting the parcels at high speed in the right direction of the sorting solution without damaging the products is one of the most dynamic and complex stages of the cross-docking process. Since downtime  is a definite no-go in this process, VanRiet offers several easy-to-maintain sorting solutions. Our patented closed-deck HC sorter prevents cartons from getting stuck between the slats and lowers the noise emission, even at a speed of up to 3 meters per second. The recently developed IQ-Grid™ represents a new generation of wheel-sorting solutions. This flexible and bi-directional sorting system is the perfect solution if there is much distance between the outfeeds of the sorter.


6. Loading

Loading the parcels from the sorter into the trucks can be quite an intensive, time-consuming process, since it is often done manually. VanRiet can moderate this process by using truck loaders, flexible and extendable conveyors and small foldable extendable conveyors, which will improve your workers’ ergonomics.
