Despite a number of optimization measures, the old warehouse did not have sufficient capacity for the extensive range. With storage at three different locations, picking of the individual items was an extremely laborious task.
The employees perform 600 picks a day – a trend that is on the rise. The company is currently expanding its range at a rate of around 60 to 100 items a day.
To create an efficient picking line and bring the diverse range together in optimum fashion, the company opted for a new building with a new warehouse concept. More than 20,000 items are stored in a two-tier META QUICK shelving system and a META MULTIPAL pallet racking system.
As well as planning the pallet racking and shelving systems, the project involved developing solutions for the correct storage of long spare parts, sheet metal, and cables.
The new warehouse system has a number of free storage positions to enable expansion. There is also the option of adding another tier to the META QUICK small-parts storage.
