  • We live retail logistics

    As a retailer, you know how important it is for the chain of planning, purchasing, warehouse/delivery logistics and controlling to function smoothly. At the same time, you also have to meet the requirements resulting from advancing digitalisation, increased customer expectations of a professional e-commerce offering and the increasing customisation of items. We turn these challenges into advantages for you.

    Flexible and fast management of product range adjustments, optimised storage and order picking as well as effective setting of the course for your delivery expertise – that’s what you can expect from us.

  • Real Time Location System

    SWAN is a founding member of omlox – the open localisation standard with free and flexible use of a wide range of technologies such as UWB, RFID, WIFI/BLE and GPS. Thanks to our many years of experience in connecting different localisation systems to SAP, we are specialists in the localisation of assets (containers, pallets, goods) and resources (indoor/outdoor forklifts, industrial trucks, AGVs). We have created a real-time location system (RTLS) developed entirely in SAP EWM and ABAP, with which every pallet movement in the warehouse can be recognised.

    In addition to optimised, location-based order allocation within the forklift fleet, this also eliminates any time-consuming scanning and identification processes. The 3D visualisation of all inventory, movement and location data in our SWAN 3D Logistics Cockpit creates an intuitive and informative digital twin of your logistics. SAP postings such as production consumption or storage location transfers can be automated via the integrated geo-fencing.

  • Transparency on the shop floor

    Our SWAN KPI dashboards based on FIORI and SAPUI5 bring transparency to all warehouse processes, creating an easy-to-understand, standardised information basis for all employees in logistics and production.

    Real-time data from SAP S/4HANA, SAP EWM, Yard Logistics and SAP TM is clearly presented and helps to achieve daily targets, visually allocate work centres and loading zones or prioritise delayed work packages in a targeted manner. The slide show function can be used to display changing content on TVs on the shop floor – SWAN can also integrate data from any other IT systems or plants.

  • Pick robots

    Whether single-piece robots, gantry robots or layer picking robots – we have already controlled all types of robots with SAP EWM. By integrating robots, the picking process can be organised efficiently, quickly and error-free. In the SAP system, product, pallet and customer master data is used to compile the orders in picking and pallet target images are calculated on the basis of complex SAP algorithms. This product information and sequences are then transferred to the robot controller.

    Robots offer high functional reliability, dynamics and efficiency in logistics and enable gentle product handling. Employees are relieved of ergonomically unfavourable work steps.
