More than a shelving system
Schrader Industriefahrzeuge, one of Linde's authorised dealers, awarded the contract for the planning and equipping of a compact warehouse incl. locator technology to SSI SCHAEFER.
The new warehouse is approx. 250 m long. With 320 drawers, 11,750 insert boxes, around 580 shelves and more than 160 special shelves, it is designed for a capacity of 13,100 articles. To achieve efficient, path-optimised order picking and optimum usage of the shelving area, Schrader is relying on the SSI Schaefer compact warehouse principle and storage by locators.
"Despite the increased stock, we have virtually doubled our picking time from 90 to around 160 picks per hour using the locator system, the structured processes and the new warehouse equipment."
