Launch of Warehouse TV at LGI


BOEBLINGEN (Germany). Less walkways, shorter communication ways, reduced paper handling – these are just a few of all benefits, the warehouse TV has to offer. The first test in the goods receipt Cross Dock already took place. At April 11, the warehouse TV was integrated in the everyday work in Böblingen near Stuttgart. The warehouse TV is an information system, which reproduces various data such as receipt numbers.

More than 100 trucks with different loads head for the goods receipt at the Cross Dock every day. The goods get registered there. Afterwards, they get distributed on numbered distribution places, so-called relations tracks. The warehouse TV optimizes and slims down these distribution processes.

The warehouse TV runs over a monitor, which is attached to a pillar in the goods receipt. Warehouse employees and shift supervisors can see the distribution order of the goods receipts, the forwarding agency, and additional information. This is how the distribution processes of the goods get improved. Furthermore, the warehouse TV allows a constant overview about the work progress. The warehouse TV is an information system, which reproduces the following data:

  1. Receipt number
  2. Receipt place
  3. Receipt time
  4. Additional information

Employees can mark completed tours on a tablet underneath the monitor (see picture). The idea for the warehouse TV arose out of a university project in summer 2016. In collaboration with the LGI IT subsidiary Helix, the warehouse TV has been in use for the first time since a few days.

Before the warehouse TV existed the workers had to get information like distribution orders in the ground office. Now they receive all information of the distribution processes collected on one monitor. „The warehouse TV might be a big change for some employees. But there is the awareness that the warehouse TV is important and it makes work easier“, Warehouse Manager Jens Berger sums up. The system has also been in use for some years at LGI’s site in Hamburg.
