Imperial manages sequencing centre for Audi

07.08.2017 – Ingolstadt. Imperial Logistics International will manage the sequencing centre for AUDI AG in building T at the Logistics and Goods Transport Center in Ingolstadt from the end of August onwards.

The order placed by Audi covers incoming goods, warehousing and replenishing supplies in the sequencing zones, feeding supplies to the assembly lines with just-in-sequence trolleys from the Goods Transport Centre as well as handling empties.

Building T is the 16th at the Logistics and Goods Transport Center in Ingolstadt. It was put into service more than three years ago, measures 210 by 270 metres and has total space measuring 74,000 square metres on two floors. Imperial will manage about 40,000 square metres of this figure. The daily work will involve about 165,000 picks and using 3,700 just-in-sequence trolleys. Imperial will take over 650 employees from the previous service company as part of the transfer of operations. 

Imperial is continuing to expand its cooperation with AUDI AG through this new contract; the two companies have already been working together in Hungary for some time. Imperial manages the internal factory logistics at the Audi production site in Györ in Hungary and administers Audi’s replenishing warehouse there.
