Due to the different stock goods, the Arnsberg-based storage technology expert META used different system solutions for the respective areas.
For parts storage in the order picking area, the META CLIP boltless shelving system in combination with steel construction elements was installed over two storeys, ensuring clear and flexible storage of over 30,000 different (small) parts. Due to the open arrangement of the aisles and the corresponding positioning of the fast movers, short walking distances and thus more efficient order picking are achieved. And the future expansion in articles and turnover is already prepared, because the two-storey META CLIP shelving system is prepared for the extension with an additional storey. This means that the storage area set up there can be considerably expanded very quickly.
Connected to the floor system, special tunnel racking systems, also based on the META CLIP system, enable the optimum storage of various LED long tubes.
In addition, the META MULTIPAL pallet racking system was used as a post-supply or seasonal buffer warehouse and for the storage of other goods, creating approx. 8,000 pallet spaces in the wider storage area. In specially dimensioned pallet racks, wire mesh shelves were used to create storage spaces for manual order picking of goods with special dimensions. These 1,500 mm deep META MULTIPAL pallet racks also offer storage space for longer pallets thanks to their three supporting beams. For better identification, the spars of these rack rows are not painted in red orange but in blue.
In principle, the precise planning and positioning of all product groups has been carried out according to the rotation speed (ABC analysis). The targeted detailed planning was carried out in close cooperation between the managing directors Robert Bechtle and Bernd Schwettmann from LDBS Lichtdienst and the META office and field staff.
