One Instead of Six Warehouses
Six different warehouses should become one in the 17,000 m2 large facilities, meaning new articles are constantly being handled and added in the system. An ongoing project involves high frequent items for picking should be moved from high shelves to lower shelves. Handling these articles using trucks with elevating platform was too time consuming, and instead they are picked with trucks and attached step trolleys from Helge Nyberg AB. Maximum height for high frequency items are 2 meters.

More Order Lines Each Shift
Similar picking trucks have been used by another of the group’s companies in Gothenburg for 15 years, and the company is a model for how the work in Stockholm shall become more efficient.
“– The personnel likes the trucks from Helge Nyberg. They think they are fast and easy to drive”, says Gabriel Chamouni, responsible for Warehouse Service.
Moving the articles have already generated an increased efficiency. More and more order lines are being picked every shift. Another 15% of the articles in the warehouse should be handled with the trucks from Helge Nyberg AB before the same levels as those in Gothenburg are obtained.
Easy Trolley Exchange
The Molp computer system chooses which kind of box should be used for which articles, and also how many boxes that the trolley should be filled up with. The size of the box is determined by the articles’ weight and volume. The system merges many orders and automatically creates an optimum driving round for the picking. For one round, a maximum of 25 orders can
When picking is finished, the trolley is disconnected at the loading area and the order is added to other orders from another system, but for the same customer.
“– We work a lot with measuring and reporting from our system. The picking flow is constantly improving”, says Gabriel.
“– Helge Nyberg have quickly and smoothly successfully helped us to increase both productivity and efficiency. We are very satisfied. And since we see how well things are working in Gothenburg, we are convinced that it will be great here in Stockholm as well”, he finishes.
The trucks for Rexel are sold through Helge Nyberg AB’s global partner Toyota Material Handling, under the brand name BT-Movit TSE100W-609.
