So Far So Good, Says Coca-Cola HBC Of New Order Picking Technology

June 5, 2019: 12:00 AM EST
Switzerland-based Coca-Cola Hellenic, the third largest Coke bottler in the world, recently implemented Ubimax’s  xPick “pick-by-vision“ order picking solution at its Thessaloniki (Greece) distribution center. The xPick system allows for hands-free, high-speed order picking while at the same time reducing errors. Twelve pickers at the facility collect multi-product orders, including crates, shrink-foiled bottle packs, and cans and pack them onto pallets for the delivery trucks. Although the company says it’s too early to calculate consolidated benefits after only a month, the system recorded a picking accuracy increase of 99,99 percent and a picking performance increase in the range of six to eight percent. Coca-Cola HBC says customer satisfaction has improved while CAPEX savings have been in the double digits compared to former scanner technology. The company plans to deploy the technology at two further sites soon, with another five sites planned for later this year.
