Toyotsu Logistics Co., Ltd.


Operation was also easy, and it was possible to introduce it to actual work immediately after introduction.
Also, even when loading a certain amount, female employees can lightly carry out transportation work,
and we were able to drastically reduce the workload.

About Toyotsu Logistics Co., Ltd.

As a core logistics company of the Toyota Tsusho Group, we handle a wide range of logistics operations not only by companies in the group but also by companies outside the group. As a pioneer of 3PL (Third Party Logistics), which is responsible for overall logistics operations, we developed our Supply Chain Management (SCM) system by ourselves, and based on this system we manage and manage all of our customers' logistics departments collectively I will.

From receipt of Kanban data to delivery instructions, receipt and departure reports, and order data creation to the manufacturer, we manage and operate logistics information in total, and we offer "fast, cheap, safe, reliable logistics" in a thorough system .

In exporting and importing automobile parts manufacturers, we are developing SCM and establishing our own Vender to Vender logistics system. We are promoting small lot, frequent delivery and short delivery time from domestic parts manufacturers to domestic and overseas user bases. Regarding the storage of electronic parts, we have the largest warehouse for electronic parts in Japan.

Business Issues

東海地区を中心に物流センターを運営しておりますが、多くの物流センターで人材の確保と定着が課題となっておりました。

お客様からお預かりした製品の入庫・棚入れ・ピッキング・出荷と、一連の流れの取り扱いをしておりますが、物流センターで取り扱う電子部品・自動車部品は少量多品種で類似形状なものが多く、倉庫管理システムによる一貫した管理を行っていますが、必ず作業者が関与する部分があり、省人化を進めて行く上で、人が関与する工程をいかに少なくするかを日々検討しています。

また作業時間にも制限もあるため、構内の製品移動をスムースに行うことで、全体の時間を短縮し、効率化することが課題となっていました。

一人当たりの生産性向上するために、作業者の単純作業を機械化・自働化させてより少人数で物流センターを運営できるようにすることは、品質向上と労働環境の改善を行う上で重要条件となっており、その策を日々考えていました。

Reason why CarriRo was chosen

We think that relieving workload of workers in the premises and allocating human resources to sophisticated work processes that persons must engage in , will lead to quality improvement, shortening of working process time, and further improvement of the working environment, we discussed the introduction of equipment to support this movement.

当事業所では、AGV用の充分な通路幅を確保することが構造上できず、物流動線も一定ではないため、導入機種の選択に苦慮していましたが、比較的自由度の高い汎用性のあるCarriRoを見つけ、興味を持ち試験的に導入してみよう、ということになりました。

Since CarriRo has almost the same height as the carriage, CarriRo has stable center of gravity and stable running even when cargo is placed, charging time is relatively short. It can be operated almost for a day, even if you use in excessive for unexpected use on busy days,we can charge even during lunch break and can move until the night.

How to use CarriRo

05
Effect after Introduction

ドライブモード、カルガモモード共に走行基本性能については想定以上にスムースで、また操作も安易であり、導入後すぐに実作業へ導入が可能でした。また、ある程度の荷量を載せた場合にも、女性社員でも軽々と運搬作業を行うことができ、作業負荷を大幅に減じることができた。

ただし、以下の作業場面で見られた課題については、更なる改善をZMP社と協議しています。

【Test ①】 Shelving in warehouse · Picking operation
· At the site where the calibro test was introduced, it is mainly storage of relatively small parts, the space between the shelves is narrow (check → 4. External view of the layout), there are cases where it is impossible to run smoothly in relation to detection of the obstacle sensor. If it becomes possible to finely adjust the obstacle sensor, it can run even in a narrow space, and the range of utilization widens.

In addition, if the pedestal on which loads loaded is larger, it is expected to improve the efficiency of transportation, so if there is a larger pedestal type or a type that can customize the base size and shape, diversity will be born and also the range of choice spread.

【Test ②】 Cargo movement between separate warehouses
· There is convenience in the Following mode when moving between warehouses (between 1st warehouse No. 4 warehouse), We think that efficiency will improve if you run Following with multiple carriers. Further, in order to effectively utilize the existing basket car, it is also a future study material to improve the transportation efficiency by pulling it by the caliber.

· Because outdoor has unevenness of road surface (asphalt) between warehouses, we have devised safety plans to prevent cargo falling at our company, we also consult with manufacturers and are considering countermeasures.

Next Deployment

現在は物流センター1箇所での導入ですが、作業効率の向上や安全性、費用対効果が実証されれば、他の物流センターでの導入を検討して行こうと思います。
また、さまざまな用途に合わせたオプション(カスタマイズ)できるような工夫があれば、ますます使用用途も広がると思います。
今後は、より効果がでそうな拠点にはCarriRoを紹介・提案し、品質向上と効率化に役立てればと考えます。
