Swisslog wins CarryPick order with Waytek

Swisslog Logistics Automation is to install CarryPick at electrical parts supplier Waytek’s Chanhassen, Minnesota distribution centre.

Swisslog’s CarryPick solution is a mobile system for flexible, scalable order fulfilment. CarryPick’s mobile robots  supply workstations with mobile racks.

The system supports different sizes and weights of products, provides the ability to add racks and robots quickly as storage volume increases, and enables equipment to be easily moved from one warehouse to another. The goods-to-person solution is orchestrated by Swisslog’s SynQ warehouse management software.

Markus Schmidt, President Swisslog Logistics Automation Americas, said: “Many business-to-business distribution companies like Waytek are rapidly adopting goods-to-person automation and turning to Swisslog because of our unique automated systems, choice of technologies and software, as well as our vast experience implementing and supporting those systems.”
