and shipping station at Fachpack 2010

Balingen/Nuremberg, 28th September 2010 - When the time for order processing is getting persistently tighter, warehousing and shipping logistics are subject to permanent optimisation pressure, new answers are expected from logistics manufacturer and service providers. At this year's Fachpack, the international specialist exhibition for packaging technology from 28th - 30th September in Nuremberg, the Balingen solutions provider Bizerba (hall 9, stand 140) will present a contemporary combination of their counting software WinCIS Counting and the shipping system PSS (Parcel-Shipping-System) for a manual dispatch workplace.

The software supported commissioning and shipping station

Bizerba has set up a flexible commissioning, packing and shipping station consisting of the operating terminal ST, the load receiver LA 150 and corresponding printer and weigher models, a scanner and a PC with flat touch screen with Windows interface and intuitive user management as well as the software systems WinCIS Counting and PSS-manual. "The operating terminal with touch screen interface is self explanatory, can be understood without a handbook and leads the worker through the individual process steps securely. Large buttons guarantee a high level of accuracy, even with gloves on", explains Dieter Conzelmann, Director of Industry Solutions Market at Bizerba.

The use of WinCIS Counting allows the most precise counting results and a consistently up to date overview of the stock of materials. After all, especially small parts such as screws are tedious to commission by hand. "All data is permanently available" says Conzelmann, "and ensure a high level of transparency.“ Apart from the basic module WinCIS Counting can be extended with numerous modules, according to the customer relevant requirements components for tolerance control, compilation of statistics and determination of reference weight can be added.

Supplemented by multi user and client capable PSS software by Bizerba, which is also available in various expansion stages, the shipping procedure can also be processed at the same work place. The shipments are manually scanned and weighed, the software determines the most cost effective method of shipping and the most suitable method of transport based on the integrated tariffs, transfers the data to a superior host system and compiles the necessary shipping documents. Additionally the software allows address management, maintenance of master data or importing the router file for the relevant method of transport according to company information and expansion stage. The calibratable system PSS also fulfils the ISO 9001/2 norms in the shipping area. This includes documentation of all shipping procedures carried out .

Using the GLP label printer included in the system, an RFID label (Radio Frequency Identification) can be made. This means that via radio technology, individual shipments of outgoing goods no longer need to be individually identified using the barcode. " RFID labelling enables time saving registration without visual contact with parallel quantity checking“, says Conzelmann.
