And a control system. The control system is configured to receive an order for a plurality of disparate articles, determine one destination container of a plurality of destination containers to direct the transport vehicle to deposit a selected article, direct the first transport vehicle to transport a selected article to the destination container and deposit the article by manipulation of the first transport vehicle from the first position to the second position for deposit of the selected article in the destination container.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système comprenant un emplacement d'alimentation d'article, l'emplacement d'alimentation d'article comprenant une pluralité d'articles à trier, des premier et second véhicules de transport ayant chacun une première position dans laquelle un article est rangé autour du véhicule et une seconde position dans laquelle l'article est déposé dans un conteneur proximal, et un système de commande. Le système de commande est configuré pour recevoir un ordre pour une pluralité d'articles disparates, déterminer un conteneur de destination d'une pluralité de conteneurs de destination pour diriger le véhicule de transport pour déposer un article sélectionné, diriger le premier véhicule de transport pour transporter un article sélectionné vers le conteneur de destination et déposer l'article par manipulation du premier véhicule de transport de la première position à la seconde position pour le dépôt de l'article sélectionné dans le conteneur de destination.
