As a general contractor, SSI SCHAEFER developed and realised a high bay racking system with approx. 10,000 pallet storage locations for Germany's leading chemicals distributor Brenntag AG.

It was not an everyday task, because the comprehensive contructional and technical specifications for handling chemical products had to be followed in addition to the requirements for efficient warehouse logistics; all as part of a 40 m high warehouse complex. Another important requirement regarding turnaround rate, pallet control and warehouse management originated from the core business of the company: The trend in the chemical industry towards customised products and the resulting small batch sizes, with ever tighter preparation times and storage of the relevant supplies.

Project objectives:

  • Reduce warehousing costs and personnel
  • Better response options at peak times
  • Increase delivery quality and faster delivery service
  • Reduction in internal transport costs
  • Centralise goods-in and good-out area
  • High availability of articles
