Automated guided vehicle systems for Goods-to-Person order picking


Online retail is booming. With the increasing number of orders coupled with the expectation of ever shorter delivery times, picking goods is becoming more of a challenge.

Today, most of the associated warehouse processes are still carried out manually by people. For picking, for example, this means that employees walk through a warehouse that has items on shelves or trolleys to collect the corresponding products. This “walking time” is lost working time. The bottom line is that warehouse processes are slow and inefficient. Leading companies in warehousing and fulfillment are therefore turning to automation, especially when pursuing an omnichannel strategy with multiple sales channels.

With Grenzebach goods-to-person solutions, employees remain stationary at so-called pick stations. Automated guided vehicles transport goods carriers with products to these stations. The employees remove the relevant products and place them in order containers, such as shipping cartons. Clear displays support picking, thus preventing errors. Upstream and downstream steps in the order process, such as packaging and shipping, can also be integrated. Intelligent software ensures that warehouse processes and order processing are optimized efficiently.

Good for you and your customers

Optimized warehouse operation

An optimized warehouse not only saves space, it also enables faster processes: more order lines per hour means shorter delivery times. A lower error rate reduces incorrect deliveries and returns.

Flexibly customizable

Your warehouse is growing or changing? No problem. You can expand the goods-to-person solution at any time or flexibly adapt individual components. You can also relax and compensate for workload peaks.

Safe and ergonomic

Goods are stored and transported in a secure area. This reduces unauthorized access as well as risks for your employees. Our pick stations also take ergonomic criteria into account.

Intelligent logistics meets historic architecture: Swiss Post


All international letter post items containing goods are customs-cleared at the international letter center in Zurich-Mülligen. The automated guided vehicles (AGV) from Grenzebach work reliably as part of the intralogistics solution developed for the listed building by the general contractor Gilgen Logistics – so that the family mail or business letters reach their recipients as fast as possible.

Getting it right the first time: an achievable goal in eCommerce.


High rework rates due to wrong picks, too few order lines per hour and increased staffing requirements, especially challenging during peak times, represent one of the most common problems faced by eCommerce customers.
