Smart system for goods receipt

Seven at 
one Stroke

Instead of eight, only one manual touch is required for the receipt of cartons: With One-Touch Receiving, we have automated the entire receipt of goods process by combining our industry-leading material handling equipment into one system.

One-Touch Receiving - Efficient Inbound & Storage System by TGW
Our intelligent system for incoming goods and storage.
One-Touch Receiving


Cartons are placed directly from the trailer on an extendable conveyor belt. The fully automatic process then starts with quality inspection (weight, volume, carton contour) and scanning. After being received in the system, the delivery quantity is compared with the order quantity, and after a conformity check it is stored in a mini-load system. Goods that have not been cleared through customs can also be put away, but remain blocked for picking replenishment. Processes such as quality control, recall actions and repacking of damaged cartons are also supported by the system and can be carried out at designated workstations. The mini-load supplies all downstream processes (for example, picking and goods issue for purchase orders with whole cartons).
