The task

The old central warehouse in Soest comprised multiple buildings with a storage area of 1300 sq. m. Picking was an time consuming task and there wasn’t enough space. The move to Beckum required optimization of work and to ensure rapid delivery times for over 35,000 items.

Customer statement

“The flexibility of the systems enables us to store items in accordance with customer preferences. If a customer needs an item several times a week, this item is logistically positioned within the warehouse system to enable quick delivery” says Sebastian Rustige, Content Manager. “Another benefit for us and for our customers is being able to present the racking systems as reference objects for resales within the central warehouse itself. Because META is nearby, offers excellent contact, and has a flexible approach, we were able to achieve an optimum result in the shortest time possible.”

The META MULTIPAL pallet racking system offers plenty of space and storage room for large and bulky products.

A clear overview of stored small parts with quick reactions to orders – all possible with the expandable META CLIP multi-tier shelving system.
