The trolleys, equipped with four shelves, are used for incoming and outgoing goods as well as for picking and return deliveries. Due to their numerous applications, the order picking trolleys feature extremely variable fittings and set-ups: two of the four shelves can be unhooked, and three shelves are made of perforated sheet metal for safe picking and transporting small electronic components.
The Wanzl trolleys are ideally suited for our processes and our product assortment. Their size and easy handling keep impressing us day in, day out. Their long service life is a big plus.
Dietmar Oestreicher, head of the Duttenhofer Group logistics centre
The six mail-order companies in the Duttenhofer Group – DGH, DGH international, dexxIT, DIFOX, TECHNIKdirekt.de and TECHNIKdirekt business – offer over 30,000 products
The deliveries contain equitably priced, hand-made products and food from the developing world. Up to 400,000 packages with a total of 1.2 million dispatched items pass through here every year. Orders are picked manually using 50 Wanzl KT 3 order picking trolleys, which have a centrally mounted 5th wheel at the bottom for easy manoeuvring. One Wanzl trolley can carry up to 16 boxes and depending on height, each box has its own allocated space on the trolley. "Route-optimised order picking, associated with this defined space allocation on the shelves, has made a huge impact on picking efficiency", says the head of DW dispatching, Willi Arnold. The trolley's four shelves can all be accessed from both sides. In addition, depending on the goods to be picked, three of the four intermediate levels can be set up at different heights.
Wanzl order picking and transport trolleys are available for any application – we also custom-build them on request. Ergonomic designs, carefully selected materials and the latest computer-controlled production processes guarantee optimum workmanship and reliable operation.
