ProGlove´s Solution for Logistics
Thanks to the Bulky Goods 2.0 and ProGlove projects we are no longer tied to stationary processing stations but can process bulky goods anywhere in the hall.
Deputy Head of Warehouse, DHL
DHL is one of the world's most important logistic company, which provides parcel and international express service, freight transport, and supply chain management services, as well as e-commerce logistics solutions.
Booming e-commerce business leads to a steep increase to already fluctuating overall shipment volumes. DHL needed to address this increase in the number of parcels they were processing without reworking their shopfloor and their working areas. Varying sizes and formats required a significant share of shipments that needed to be manually processed. In particular, processing bulky goods at the dedicated terminal was a challenge, especially with a mounting volume of packages to process every day.
A part of the project Bulky Good 2.0, DHL equipped its employees with ProGlove’s back-of-hand scanners. Four components were combined: smartphone for full operator mobility, app for interface with the management system, ProGlove wearable scanner and the mobile printer for printing barcodes. Therefore, workers are no longer tied to stationary workstations and can work from anywhere in the bulky goods areas.
