HTH Logistic Solutions Hth Logistic Solutions Focuses on Paperless Processes in Logistics

Logo_HTH

Numerous digitization gaps and paper-based processes still exist in logistics. Stationary PCs at goods receiving, a lack of storage location management in production, or paper-based picking and replenishment processes are a few examples of the potential for change. We developed platbricks® for this purpose: A modular digital system that can be used to design internal and cross-company supply chain processes efficiently. Logistics service provider HTH Logistic Solutions has relied on platbricks® to digitalize its processes and launched the platform's cloud-based warehouse management.

Customer Advantages

Thanks to the cloud-based platbricks® WMS from Arvato Systems, we have found a very intuitive and scalable IT system that can grow with our customers. Due to the full-scale digitization of the warehouse processes, we now have 100 percent transparency and much more efficient processes.

HTH Logistic Solutions

Project Overview

Initial Situation

The logistics system previously used by HTH Logistic Solutions no longer met all the requirements of modern logistics processes. Goods receipt, storage, replenishment, picking, and loading were largely paper-based. This resulted in long lead times and many manual data entries in the individual work steps. There was a lack of visibility into order status and inventory, which was not real-time. 

Consequently, a high-quality effort had to be made to keep the error rate low. There were high sorting efforts of the picking orders and partly empty runs due to missing stock and order sequences that were not route-optimized. The interfaces were based on outdated technologies, harbored potential for errors, and required a high manual effort.

Vision

HTH Logistic Solutions wanted to invest in new logistics locations and greatly expand its warehouse capacities. In the course of this, the company aimed to modernize its logistics structures and software. An end-to-end IT solution was to make processes transparent and enable steady growth. Work processes were to be digital and intuitive.

Solution

Together with HTH Logistic Solutions, we developed a target concept for processes that are as paperless and efficient as possible. The basis for the Digital Transformation was to be the warehouse management module of our logistics platform platbricks®.

The following processes are now handled digitally: Goods Receiving , Putaway (route-optimized with double play), Retrieval (route-optimized with double play), Picking (Single and Multi Order), Packing, Loading and Returns.

The implementation time from the first workshop to go live was only four months and was largely accompanied by us remotely and virtually due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

The forklift guidance system from platbricks® was to control the storage so that the goods are distributed as evenly as possible to the different rows of shelves. At the same time, upcoming retrievals were taken into account and controlled so that the scarce forklift resources performed a double play as far as possible, thus avoiding empty runs.  

A special feature here was the integration of the narrow-aisle forklift control system from Jungheinrich. The narrow aisle trucks from Jungheinrich have an automatic place approach, which is addressed via standard interfaces from platbricks®. There are also automated interfaces for individual customers, enabling continuous and digital customer order processing. 

The detailing and mapping of the multi-stage process chains from goods receipt to production supply were also carried out in platbricks®. To connect the CEP service providers, HTH Logistic Solutions relied on shipcloud, whose services are fully integrated in platbricks®. 

About HTH Logistics Solutions
