Project Introduction

SF-DHL Supply Chain

China

SF Supply Chain is China's leading supply chain service provider covering Chinese mainland, Hongkong and Macao. The company integrates Deutsche Post DHL group and SF to provide customers with high-quality integrated supply chain solutions. The company operates a warehouse that serves a fashion brand providing B2B & B2C order fulfillment, sample management, and return logistics services. During online shopping festivals, the large amount of SKUs are difficult to manage. As a result, the company needed to optimize its warehouse operations to meet the increasing demand of orders and optimize the storage capacity.

Our Solution

SF-DHL in Shanghai was looking for an efficient, intelligent, and flexible automation solution to meet the demand for the 618 online shopping festival. The automation transformation project aimed to improve overall operation efficiency, reduce labor costs, and optimize storage density. The implementation included 9 units of HAIPICK A42, 3 workstations, and HAIQ Software Platform. The warehouse area is 2,000 m2 , including 1,500 m2 of shelving storage area with 20,000 storage spaces. HAI ROBOTICS delivered the project within one month, and the HAIPICK system came into operations automating the storage, handling, transportation, and other essential processes.

1. Increase storage space: it can realize 4m shelving, increasing storage density by 60%

The 4.2m high HAIPICK A42 robot allows the warehouse to use 4m high shelves (the traditional manual shelf is only 2m). The project achieves average storage of 10 standard cases per square meter, increasing storage density by 60%.

2. Kanban visual management system: easy to operate, achieving efficient and accurate information management

The Kanban visual management system allows warehouse operators and managers to track orders and robots' status in the system. Conveniently realize the operation and the whole process of information management.

3. Rapid deployment: within one week, and commissioning in one month!

In one week, the deployment was completed in a 2,000 square meters warehouse. Commissioning took one month, meeting the project's urgent delivery requirements and helping the warehouse complete the operations for one of China's biggest online shopping festivals.

4. Improve labor efficiency: inbound efficiency is improved 20 times, outbound efficiency is improved 3.5 times

Combined with HAI ROBOTICS' self-developed path planning and depth algorithm, HAIQ Software Platform simultaneously dispatched 9 HAIPICK robots to work together in the warehouse, and intelligently realized the accurate storage, handling, and sorting of cases. More than 2,500 pieces of clothing can be store in the warehouse, and nearly 700 pieces of clothing can be picked and distributed every hour. The efficiency of storage and delivery was increased 20 times and 3.5 times, respectively.
