Warehousing – combining people and technology

Intelligent and efficient warehousing operations are necessary to ensure that we can supply your goods at the right place and at the right time and in the right quantity and quality. Based on our warehousing concepts for our defined industry sectors, we use our customers’ requests in order to organise the most efficient operations for incoming goods, the movement of goods and the type of storage operations within the warehouse and outgoing goods. It makes no difference whether we manage your goods at our own logistics centres or at your storage areas and sheds.

Efficient warehousing means optimising time and costs and absolutely smooth processes for you, our customers. If you wish, we can offer you a complete package, which covers every kind of need, ranging from managing the warehouse, including the necessary warehouse equipment, to handling the goods, order picking and stocktaking.

Trained specialists, modern warehouse equipment, a profound knowledge of your business and cost benefits through using our logistics centres, which are designed as multi-user sites, are just some of the advantages that you obtain if we operate your warehousing operations. Depending on the requirements and the size of the logistics business of our customers, we of course also offer dedicated warehouse concepts in which the warehouse is operated exclusively for a single customer.

One particular advantage, which distinguishes us, is our enthusiasm for new technologies and process innovations. Working with the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics (IML), we are operating a flying robot at one of our warehouse sites; it is equipped with RFID technology and extensive sensors as part of the “InventAIRY” pilot project. The robot will bring us closer to the goal of having permanent stocktaking operations, which operate automatically.
