Case Study

LOXX Lagerlogistik GmbH

BACKGROUND

The modern logistics center at the headquarters in Gelsenkirchen in the Ruhr region includes a total of 17,000 sqm of handling and logistics space with 93 loading gates. 10,000 sqm of the area are used for international cross-docking and 7,000 sqm for logistics services as part of contract logistics. With state-of-the-art technology, the four logistics halls meet all the requirements for fast and environmentally friendly goods handling.

CHALLENGE

In order to process the high volume of goods that pass through the warehouse area in Gelsenkirchen every day with consistently high service quality, seamless shipment tracking is vital for LOXX Lagerlogistik GmbH.

Since 2016, the company has relied on the CargoVIS video management system from DIVIS with the additional Location & function for scanner location to ensure punctual and damage-free deliveries to its customers. During the initial installation it was necessary to equip the scanners with tags or transponders, small hardware parts for signal transmission. The tracking subsequently delivered precise results, and the consignment research as well as the claims processing could be accelerated considerably. However, the transponders caused on-going costs through acquisition, maintenance and repairs. In addition malfunctions of this hardware accessory often only became noticeable afterwards resulting in tracking failures and ultimately missing data in the information flow of the consignment tracking.

SOLUTION

When DIVIS added the new tagless Quuppa powered solution to their product portfolio, a solution offering reliable location information without tags, LOXX was immediately convinced. The barcode scanners can be located with sub-meter accuracy directly via an app developed by DIVIS. The Quuppa system detects the Bluetooth signals from the mobile devices and registers the location of the scanned goods in the logistics hall.

The integrated Quuppa Divis app operates on any smartphone or mobile device with Bluetooth connectivity and is less susceptible to interference due to the elimination of tags. New scanners can be effortlessly added to the locating system at any time by simply installing the app.

All four logistics halls in Gelsenkirchen were equipped with the Quuppa system. Thanks to the reliable robust dust protection the Quuppa solution is ideal also for harsh logistics environments. In addition, the system can be easily updated over-the-air and operates at high transmission speed.

Through careful planning and with lots of expertise the DIVIS technical team succeeded to deploy the system even for the quiet diverse environment due to various ceiling heights etc.

RESULTS

  • Time savings with simplified goods handling in the cross-dock
  • Cost savings in elimination the acquisition, operating and maintenance and repair costs of the tags
  • Elimination of transponder malfunctions, thus increase in tracking reliability for seamless consignment tracking
  • Time savings with reduced search and loading times
  • Increased service quality
  • Rapid return of investment through operational efficiencies and reduced costs
