FLEXIBILITY IS THE KEY

READY FOR ALL NEEDS

Our customers aren't a one-size-fits-all group! And that also goes for Kanban shelving. For this reason, we always start with our customers’ individual requirements and manufacturing processes in order to then set up the best possible container and ordering system for them.

Thanks to our extensive portfolio of hardware and software, we are able to fulfil almost every customer requirement with the right combination of containers, order triggers and level of service.

AND CONTROL

DELIVERY SYSTEMS

ONE-CONTAINER KANBAN
COMPACT & CLEAR

This container system is particularly designed for customers who only have a small amount of space available and have parts that are constantly needed, but in small quantities.

The Kanban containers used are divided in two. In the rear part of the crate, a reserve is held. As soon as this is opened, an order is automatically triggered. The goods are then picked at Ferdinand Gross and sent to the customer’s warehouse. During the intervening period, the customer uses up the reserve.

DELIVERY SYSTEMS

TWO/MULTI-CONTAINER KANBAN
THE KANBAN CLASSIC

The two- or multi-container system is ideal for customers who have a relatively even, high consumption of certain items.

Here, at least two containers are always filled with the same items. The crates are stored in a special Kanban shelving system one behind the other. If the front container is empty, an order is automatically triggered and the material needed taken from the second crate. Meanwhile, the goods are picked at Ferdinand Gross, placed in a clean crate, labelled with the customer-specific information and delivered at the agreed delivery interval.

DELIVERY SYSTEMS

ORDER TRIGGERING
FROM BLUETOOTH TO RFID

We also offer the full portfolio of established and innovative technological solutions where order triggering is concerned, letting our customers select which option best fits their own requirements. Our range covers orders:

  • by Bluetooth scanner
  • by USB scanner
  • by GSM scanner
  • by app
  • by Smartbin (weight-dependent scale system)
  • by RFID
  • and of course by FALCON

SMART SHELF SYSTEM
FROM AMBOS.IO

Together with ambos.io GmbH, we offer two mutually supporting systems: “Storage Tower” and “Assembly Station”. Both systems generate real-time data about material consumption of C-parts and support workers engaged in assembly and picking. Thus, the Assembly Station checks before assembly if all necessary items are present and leads the worker safely through the entire assembly process. While the ambos.io Assembly Station brings the parts needed in the next stage to the selection location and marks the right box using “pick-by-light”, the ambos.io app shows how many parts should be taken and how they should be assembled.

ENDLESS REPLENISHMENT

By KANBAN EXPRESS

For most of our Kanban customers, one thing is clear: if Kanban is needed, it is best in combination with our full service. With our own Kanban fleet, the “Kanban Express”, we don’t just supply the refilled containers and remove the empties. We go one step further: a Ferdinand Gross employee also takes on the task of placing the goods in the Kanban shelving and ensures they are properly entered.

Our Kanban solutions are always a win in terms of security, cost-efficiency and productivity. Most of our customers maximise these advantages by relying on our full service. Instead of triggering orders themselves, removing the empty containers, shelving the new deliveries and keeping the shelves clean and labels legible, they have one of our employees do this at a regular, defined interval. This means we, as a logistics specialist, ensure you can concentrate fully and completely on your core business!

  • automatic replacement of illegible labels on the Kanban shelves

  • maintenance and cleanliness of the shelves

  • no need to trigger an order

  • reduced effort, higher productivity and focus on the core business

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE: IF OUR CUSTOMERS NEED IT, WE HAVE ALREADY IMPLEMENTED AN 8-CONTAINER KANBAN SYSTEM!
