Now more than ever, consumers are demanding digital, tailor-made offerings, one-of-a-kind brand experiences, and rapid delivery. This is where intralogistics comes into play. And, it is not a commodity. It provides a key competitive advantage in highly contested markets – saving our customers precious time.
As the global leader in this industry, it is our mission to streamline intralogistics processes, making them ever leaner, faster and more efficient. That also means leveraging the power of digitalization, and harnessing it for the world of internal material flows. The connectivity of things and systems in today’s globalized world is opening up revolutionary opportunities to fulfill our customers’ ultimate, underlying need: the ongoing, reliable and flexible availability of goods across all distribution channels and all industries. We cooperate and communicate closely with our customers on a wide range of innovative projects to make their businesses fit for the future.
An excellent example is Haribo’s new central warehouse. SSI Schaefer provided a one-stop solution by successfully planning and executing this mammoth project within a very tight timeframe. You can discover more in our cover story, beginning on page 10.
