Schmetterling / shopping helper

Brief description “Schmetterling“

The “Schmetterling” shopping bag shall make reloading your shopping more easier and it shall reduce the number of reloading acts at the supermarket checkout.
Under this premises the concept of the „shopping helper“ was born. It includes improvements for the customer in following points.

1. It lifts the shopping on the equal level as the band-conveyor.
This dispenses stooping down into the caddy and taking the shopping out.

2. It reduces the number of reloading acts at the checkout.
