Kuehne+Nagel reduces picking errors, using weighing forks on 48 EK-X trucks

In Italy, Kuehne+Nagel provides spare parts logistics for FIAT-IVECO trucks. The parts orders are picked and shipped to the IVECO Italian dealer network. Kuehne+Nagel registered 3.5% less picking errors, thanks to the RAVAS weighing forks on their STILL trucks.

3.5% Less picking errors

In order to improve the quality of their order picking, Kuehne+Nagel installed RAVAS RWV-C weighing forks on 48 EK-X trucks. Every order line picked is now weighed on the truck. The ERP system compares this weight with the theoretical weight of the articles, on-line.  If the weights do not correspond, a picking error is signaled and corrected on the spot by the operator on the truck. A six month test period showed a 3.5% reduction of picking errors, thanks to the use of RAVAS weighing forks on the STILL trucks.
