Automated flow of materials improves response times and delivery quality

Acting as a general contractor, SSI SCHAEFER realised the setup and equipping of a new high bay racking warehouse for Europe's largest manufacturer of laminate flooring.

In addition to coordinating the building framework, the project included the steel construction, the pallet conveying and control technology as well as the installation and link-up of five storage and retrieval devices.

Using the "ant" warehouse management software, SSI SCHAEFER also provided the IT backbone for consistent transparency and seamless control and visualisation of all operations between production and outbound storage.

As a result, the new high bay racking system has improved both the response times and the delivery quality at Kronotex considerably; a strong competitive advantage thanks to warehouse automation.

Project objectives:

  • Reduce warehousing costs and personnel
  • Better response options at peak times
  • Increase delivery quality
  • Reduce transport costs
  • Centralisation of distribution and dispatch
  • High availability of articles
  • Automation of the flow of goods in the plant
  • Reduce errors 
  • Shorter delivery times
