SSI Schaefer is your systems specialist for intralogistics

SSI Schaefer is your effective and reliable partner for intralogistics: Future-proof logistics solutions must fit seamlessly into your operational processes, be infinitely expandable, and adapt flexibly to new conditions.

This, in turn, requires specialists and experts who think in terms of systems rather than individual, isolated activities. At SSI Schaefer, this integrated system philosophy 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 processes. Continuously expanding with new innovations, our  portfolio enables us to provide tailored solutions, which are designed to meet the exact requirements of our customers’. 

A driving force of innovation for 80 years

When Fritz Schaefer founded a manufacturing company for sheet metal products in 1937, no one ever suspected that his company would one day become one of the world’s leading providers of  intralogistics  solutions and products. 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. 

In keeping with the company’s philosophy of forward thinking, other innovations soon followed. SSI Schaefer became a system specialist for intralogistics. With its innovations and its integrated approach, SSI Schaefer supports companies around the globe by optimizing their supply chain.
