Ingredients of the success story

The Suning logistics center impresses with multiple components – the high-bay warehouse and the miniload system form the backbone of a highly dynamic system solution. In addition, the integration of the Schäfer Carousel System is one major benefit in terms of picking efficiency.

Thanks to the ergonomics@work!® program, not only were the warehouse processes beneficial, but all the employees benefit from sophisticated order picking and work stations. Powerful sorters and a return center supplement the internal material flow. While the existing SAP system is used in warehouse and stock management, the associated WAMAS® logistics software from SSI SCHAEFER demonstrates its strengths at the control level.

But it’s not just the numbers and internal processes that are the deciding factors in the end. Above all, the partnership between Suning and                 SSI SCHAEFER was, and is, important. In particular, the bundling of the global strength of the intralogistics experts with its local expertise in China was able to contribute to this. The synergies are used perfectly – with a team on site and other specialists guiding the project from Europe.
