XPO Logistics to Showcase Award-Winning “Pick and Put to Light” Technology at SITL Europe
XPO developed Pick and Put to Light from the ground up in collaboration with technology partner Actemium Lyon Logistics, a member company of the global Actemium network dedicated to industrial process improvement. The solution uses color recognition to retrieve palletized products and route them within the warehouse, assisting employees with fulfilment processes. The technology is fully integrated with XPO’s warehouse management system.
XPO and Actemium designed Pick and Put to Light to address specific roadblocks to efficiency in logistics environments, including inefficient use of employee time and material handling vehicles and overreliance on voice communication. The system has increased productivity by 14% on average in the picking process, improved utilization of production capacity during peak periods and dramatically reduced operator training time, while enhancing speed, accuracy, control and safety.
