Although overhead sorters are familiar in the world of garment logistics, they are not necessarily well suited to assembling one-off orders consisting of several different garments, not all of which may be on hangers. Yet this is a typical requirement of the home shopping market.

Now SDI Group has launched what it describes as highly innovative hanging pouch sortation system to meet exactly this need. It’s called the MonaLisa, and is designed to allow sortation of both hanging items and flat goods simultaneously. SDIS says this makes it ideal for multichannel fashion retailers wanting to make up orders containing several different elements.

The company reckons that one of its most distinctive features is its high speed; it makes both picked and returned product available to be sent out later in the picking window, the company says – reasoning that this should be of particular interest to e-commerce retailers.

The overhead sortation system features a carrier bag or pouch – allowing both hanging garments and boxes to be stored in dynamic picking loops. They can be accessed rapidly, whenever an order is called off by the warehouse management system. The bags are transported by the overhead technology to automatic packing stations.

Complementing the multi-patented design is a software application that not only drives the MonaLisa, but also shows retailers in real time how their merchandise is being accessed and sold.
