As soon as an order is made in the bol.com system, Docdata springs into action. The provider of ultra-specialised E-commerce and fulfilment solutions handles the entire logistics, from goods delivery to shipment, to returns management for
there was praise from the German Stiftung Warentest magazine and websites Enamora.de and Zalando.de when the best online shops of 2011 were honoured. The judges were particularly impressed by the effective ordering and returns transactions – processed in both cases by Docdata. This success has also been apparent from economic indicators: in 2011 Docdata N.V., based in the Netherlands, reported an increase in growth of 25.6% to over 130 million euros. Of this total, approximately 10 million euros was re-invested in new warehouse installations, sorting systems and IT resources. Docdata has also invested in 60 new KT3 order picking trolleys from Wanzl, all made to bespoke requirements.
Since October 2011, the trolleys have been in use around the logistics centre in Waalwijk (the Netherlands) for the Docdata customer bol.com. Thanks to a fifth castor, attached underneath the centre of the trolley, the KT3 is very easy to manoeuvre, extremely nimble and can be rotated on the spot. Every trolley comprises three shelves, which are partitioned by a central dividing wall into a total of six picking compartments. The height of each shelf may be adjusted in 50 mm stages for added convenience. Locking brakes bring the KT3 models to an immediate and safe stop.
The new trolley from Wanzl, tailored to the specific needs of bol.com products, is a significant factor in optimising order throughput times.
