Given the scale of the online commerce in the early 21st century, the consumers’ demands have become increasingly diversified. According to a recent study *, 45% of the online retailers said that preparing an order lasts more than 4 hours, while 58% of the buyers want their delivery of the online order in the same day.
To optimize the preparation of the online orders from the storage spaces, FM Logistic together with its partner Balea, a specialist in logistics solutions, have developed an innovative solution dedicated to the online commerce: e-Shopeur, FM Logistic has recently announced.
E-Shopeur is a trolley designed to facilitate the preparation of the online orders.

A new generation of preparing the orders online
The E-Shopeur solution saves time, is quick and reactive, having a triple-control function: scanner / manual sensor / weighting system.
It allows the simultaneous preparation of 48 orders, benefiting from a weighting system integrated at every level of the trolley. The IT system from the board guarantees the traceability of the picking activity.
E-Shopeur exempts the operators from the verification task of the orders, this being done in real time, enabling the detection of possible errors and having a high rate of accuracy. It is easy to handle thanks to its independent wheels and can be manipulated with one hand.
The logistics operations from the warehouse must be done very quickly, and this system saves 2 hours per day, thus resulting an optimized productivity.
Precision and intuition to work
E-Shopeur is easy to use and ergonomic. There are five operational steps:
– The Identification of the article and its location;
– The number of items that must be collected is shown on the touch screen fixed to the trolley;
– The operator puts the products in the compartment indicated by a bright display;
– The Illuminated signs attest that the item is placed in the right place;
– The scale onboard checks the weight of the orders and validates them.
Following the test period that was successfully completed, the solution was initially implemented within the FM Logistic Château-Thierry platform, in October 2016 and then in other locations in France, Poland and Russia.
„In 2017 we intend to implement the e-Shopeur solution especially for the customers in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic sector and in the online trade, for textiles and accessories,” the FM Logistic has recently announced in a press release.
