Leading global logistics service provider DB Schenker has successfully introduced Picavi’s smart glasses in order-picking operations, with the goal of implementing the smart picking solution as standard procedure across multiple locations. The case study was featured in AJOT (American Journal of Transportation). During a trial period, the smart picking application was thoroughly explored in Bremen and Rodgau, Germany, with the team in Rodgau combining the solution with intelligent scanning glove ProGlove.
Xavier Garijo, Board Member for Contract Logistics at DB Schenker, said, “Here at DB Schenker, we are continuously searching for ways to improve our operations by efficiency gains. Our partnerships with Picavi and ProGlove are two of our latest success stories as we drive innovations in contract logistics. By introducing smart glasses and smart gloves in our warehouses, we are investing in our future as the supply chain partner of choice for companies around the world.”
Picavi uses Google Glasses to project required information into the user’s field of vision. This means warehouse workers have both hands available for their primary work of picking goods instead of holding a hand scanner and paper documents. The innovative, handsfree solution maximizes productivity while minimizing error rates.
ProGlove is an intelligent scanning glove which is activated by pressing a button on the glove, allowing employees to use both hands for picking and further increasing productivity. ProGlove is already in use at DB Schenker’s warehouse in Eching, near Munich.
Jens Harig, CEO of Picavi: “The fact that a company like DB Schenker, with almost 800 contract logistics locations worldwide, has effectively implemented a proof of concept with us testifies to the performance of the Picavi smart glasses. The strong visual guidance and hands-free approach distinguishes the pick-by-vision solution from other picking systems. This is where we set standards for the market – and within the future of DB Schenker.”
