Koch, Neff & Volckmar GmbH (KNV) is Germany's leading media wholesaler with a range of over 540,000 books, DVDs, sound storage media, games and other articles from the book trade. In order to be even better equipped for future trends in the book market, KNV and KNO VA have merged their previous locations and centralised them in Erfurt. For this purpose, SSI Schäfer was commissioned to realize this superlative project as general contractor for intralogistics. The result is a particularly powerful system that shows how high availability and redundant system design can be combined with extremely compact construction. With an average picking performance of 250,000 lines, around 75,000 packages leave the freight centre every day.
