VanRiet-Commited to maximize your uptime_2017



Many e-commerce players offer different products. Some only sell electronics whereas others sell as many products as a regular department store. However, this doesn’t necessarily influence the basics of the intralogistics process: you will always need to unload, store, pick, pack and sort products for your client. The way this is done depends on your products, requirements and preferences. VanRiet focusses on high-capacity solutions. A high throughput from a to z, at minimum noise levels and with maximum availability; that is our core competence.

Complete Intralogistic E-Commerce Solution


  1. Order picking

VanRiet has a proven track record in developing order-picking areas in e-commerce warehouses. Batch and zone picking are two popular techniques in these industries, depending on the business. More and more e-commerce clients opt for zone picking, whereas 3PL providers often prefer batch picking. A batch- or zone-picking solution in combination with, for example, a pick-to-light system for your fast movers, will optimize your order-picking process. VanRiet can help you make the right decision.


  1. Indoor conveying

Your intralogistic system is connected by conveyors, the veins of your solution. Therefore, these conveyors should be reliable and easy to maintain. VanRiet offers a large variety of conveyors: combi-drive belt conveyors, powered roller conveyors, fabric belt conveyors and modular belt conveyors. All developed to guarantee minimal downtime and easy maintenance.


  1. Consolidation and packing

After the order-picking process, the products are automatically transported to the order-pick cabinets with pitching holes. In these holes, all the products belonging to the same order are collected to ensure that they are packed and transported together in one parcel.


  1. Checking and identification

To keep track of your orders, you need tracking devices throughout the process. We design and integrate fully automatic identification, weighing, volume-scanning and dimensional weight-scanning equipment, with a legal-for-trade certification, depending on your application. VanRiet only integrates A-brand identification equipment to ensure minimal “no-read” levels, as well as optimal sortation quality and efficiency.


  1. Sorting

Sorting the parcels at high speed in the right direction of the sorting solution without damaging the products is one of the most dynamic and complex stages of the cross-docking process. Since downtime is a definite no-go in this process, VanRiet offers several easy-to-maintain sorting solutions. Our patented closed-deck HC Sorter prevents cartons from getting stuck between the slats and lowers the noise levels, even at a speed of up to 3 meters per second. The recently developed IQ-Grid™ represents a new generation of wheel-sorting solutions. This flexible and bi-directional sorting system is the perfect solution when there is much distance between the outfeeds of the sorter.


  1. Loading

Loading the parcels from the sorter into the trucks can be quite an intensive, time-consuming process since it is often done manually. VanRiet can moderate this process by using truck loaders, flexible and extendable conveyors and small foldable extendable conveyors, which will improve worker ergonomics.
