Schaefer’s patented SSI Carrier pouch sorter system has been named as one of the “Best of 2018” in the “Intralogistics & Production Logistics” category at the 2018 Industry Award presented by Huber Verlag für Neue Medien GmbH.
This year, the top-class jury consisted of professors, scientists, industry representatives, and trade journalists. Criteria considered by the expert panel included: ecological, technological, economic, and social benefits of nominated solutions.
Together they evaluated the nominated products and solutions according to a set list of criteria. After looking at the long-term and overall benefits, it was, above all, progress – meaning innovativeness, product maturity, and a forward-thinking approach – that enabled solutions to qualify for recognition.
The patented SSI Carrier was awarded a place on the “Best of” list at the 2018 Industry Awards, and the company is strongly believed to be one of the top brands worldwide when it comes to providing products, systems and full solutions for internal material flows.
“This award is an endorsement of our focus and our long-term investment in developing products and solutions. We developed the SSI Carrier as a direct response to customer demand and this, therefore, puts us in the best position to satisfy the market requirements which are related to omni-channel distribution,” said Michael Mohr, Executive Vice President Sales at SSI Schaefer in a press release.
“We are very excited about the award and we see it as more than just a positive response to our innovative pouch sorter,” he continued.
SSI Carrier: Versatile, economical, and award-winning
With a single drive system, the SSI Carrier transports, stows, buffers, distributes, and sorts – a multi-functional innovative product.
The modular pouch sorter system was developed primarily for the parallel processing of multiple distribution channels and to act as a highly efficient and dynamic returns buffer in e-commerce.
The patented design by SSI Schaefer combines both increased storage density and gentle transportation for a wide variety of products, including shoes, electrical goods, household devices, cosmetics, and items of clothing.
