Whether automatic or manual, with SAP EWM customers can load their tugger trains for route-optimized delivery.

With this solution, production can be supplied and disposed of precisely and sequentially with material, which in turn leads to more efficient and leaner processes in the entire production supply.

Goods-to-Person Principle | IGZ

Picking goods-to-person – Efficient order processing

At an average warehouse workstation, goods with a total weight of several tons are moved daily. The optimal adaptation of the picking to the needs of the employees is essential.

IGZ offers high-performance and ergonomically sophisticated goods-to-person workstations based on SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM). This prevents errors, optimizes performance and guarantees safety and ergonomics for employees.
