Online shop www.raiffeisenmarkt.de: order picking 4.0
A real lightweight at only 43 g but fitted with smart machinery inside: Manfred Neumann, order picker at the Raiffeisen online shop at AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG in Münster-Loddenheide, is already busy with the new data glasses. The glasses are not for a computer game during lunch break; rather, they are a valuable aid for the working day.

All information on the next order can be viewed on the integrated miniature screen. “It's incredible how much information passes through this tiny monitor,” says Neumann. “At first, the view is a bit strange, but you do quickly learn to work with it.” With the glasses on his nose, he fetches the goods ordered from the shelf and, little by little, processes the order.
Roland Pöppelbaum, head of the distribution centre in Münster-Loddenheide, explains the advantages of this new way of working. “Instead of being occupied with a terminal and scanner, the order picker's hands are free. As a result, efficiency can be increased by 10%. Moreover, the process can be carried out flawlessly through monitoring it through the data glasses.”
An introduction to the AGRAVIS distribution centre follows
The Raiffeisen online shop has incorporated working with the data glasses as a pilot project in January, and, in summer 2017, the neighbouring AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG distribution centre will also start order picking with the data glasses. And in the distant future, the machinery could also be used for scanning incoming and outgoing goods as well as for compiling inventories. Markus Menne, head of Logistics, is proud to be carrying out pioneering work: “Until now, only a few companies have been using data glasses for logistics work. We’re playing a real trailblazing role here – because we are convinced that this is the future.”
