SSI SCHAEFER is your systems specialist for intralogistics

Companies from all over the world trust SSI SCHAEFER to implement their future-safe logistics solutions. Future-proof logistics solutions must integrate seamlessly into existing processes, be infinitely expandable, and adapt flexibly to new conditions.

Developing complex logistics solutions requires specialists and experts who think in terms of systems rather than individual, isolated activities. At SSI SCHAEFER, this integrated system mentality has been the basis of our success for decades. Our extensive portfolio of solutions and products covers the entire spectrum of intra-company material flow. Continuously expanded with new innovations, this portfolio forms the foundation for precisely tailored solutions designed to meet our customers’ exact requirements.

A driving force of innovation for 80 years

When Fritz Schäfer founded a manufacturing company for sheet metal products in 1937, no one ever suspected that his company would one day become the world’s leading provider for logistics products and systems. The development of the storage fix box was the foundation for the company’s success. This revolutionary innovation in the container market remains an integral part of many storage systems today.

Other innovations soon followed, in keeping with the company’s philosophy of always thinking one step further than the market. SSI SCHAEFER developed into a system specialist for intralogistics. With its innovations and its integrated approach, it supports companies around the globe with optimizing their supply chain.
