Pharmaceutical Direct-to-Consumer With the increasing demand for e-commerce delivery of prescription drugs, glasses, and other sensitive or personalized products where order fulfillment and delivery requires 100% accuracy every time, it is more critical than ever for suppliers to have the right equipment to process, ship, and trace these orders both correctly and efficiently. We offer an affordable, practical solution for pharmaceutical and other direct-to-consumer business operations where order fulfillment accuracy is paramount. Our Precision Small Parcel Sorter (Precision SPS) was developed to provide a fast, efficient, highly developed tracking-and-reporting solution for sorting small parcels of any shape and size where high-accuracy requirements must be met with every order, such as with mail-order prescriptions.
The Packaging and Shipping system is a customized solution that creates a seamless interface in package flow between a client’s picking station and an automated sortation system. Goods are first grouped together via placement on a manual prep station by operators. These products are next run through a series of modules that gap and align the them prior to entry into a carton wrapping machine, where weighing and dimensioning occurs using a DWS system which allows postage to be automatically calculated and a destination label to be printed and applied. The package is routed to a shipping destination using a sorter capable of whatever resolution that best suits the clients cost model, whether it be a three-digit, five-digit, or SCF routing scheme. Using this system, Fluence can provide a full end-to-end solution that minimizes manpower and maximizes throughput for any shipping architecture.
With a growing demand in e-commerce for faster delivery times, it is becoming increasingly important to maximize efficiency within fulfillment centers. High throughput secondary sortation for small parcels has become an immediate need to effectively handle the market demands while improving facility capacity. The Big Output Secondary Sorting (BOSS) System provides an ideal linear shipping or receiving solution for customers that desire the ability to sort small and medium size parcels into high-volume containers. Both modular and scalable, the BOSS system can be configured for a wide variety of feature sets and destination outputs while maintaining a significantly smaller footprint than competing technologies. While addressing market demands, this system solution also provides additional sortation discounts with couriers using minimal labor and with minimal acquisition costs. Feature sets can include, an ergonomic prep station, indexing, dimensioning, weighing, barcode scanning, optical character recognition, print and apply labeling, and a variety of configuration and destination outputs.
With the industry’s growing concerns about increased e-commerce volumes, heightened processing and delivery costs, and lowered expectation on the consumer end to pay shipping, Fluence Automation has made the push to offer many integrated induction systems to overcome these growing needs. The Sorter Induction System will satisfy induction requirements for your distribution operation. It is available as an in-line or off-line system that can include in-line or off-line weighing, high-resolution image acquisition cameras, and OCR/BCR recognition software. Parcel processing speeds range from 200 to 12,000 parcels per hour providing on-demand or non-stop parcel performance with little or no labor intervention. Fluence Automation will provide proven, high quality induction products that are expected to increase productivity demands and decrease costs.
After various clients came to us needing to maximize the processing of our encoding/OCR/BCR engines, Fluence Automation designed and installed multiple Bulk Dumping & Buffering Systems to create a constant even flow of products. The systems are designed to breakdown the parcel sequence with a series of 90 degree turns which reduce clumping of the parcels. This allows for on-demand delivery and since the system is never “starved” for parcels, productivity is increased and labor need is reduced. The system is designed to not have any manual intervention outside of loading the pallets into the dumper. The dumper goes through a series of pauses to let the product gradually unload and has a sensor to dump the product on demand.
