The challenges in production logistics

To meet the high productivity pressure, industrial companies must design their material flow seamlessly, reliably, and cost-efficiently.

Yet they repeatedly come up against the same pain points:

  • Complex incoming goods processes: A wide variety of items must be received, checked, sorted, registered, and made available at the right place at the right time.

  • Stagnant material flow: the connection between the warehouse and production is a bottleneck: if the material flow stagnates, performance suffers and, in the worst case, there is a risk of downtime.

  • High costs: the rise in prices for transportation and energy as well as the large amount of space required by warehouses threaten the profitability of production.

  • Staff shortages and costs: there is a lack of skilled workers for manual logistics processes and high personnel costs are increasingly becoming a burden.

Would you like to face these challenges and take your production logistics to a new level? Then let's work together! As experienced intralogistics experts, we know exactly what is important and can implement your semi- or fully automated system solution - customized, sustainable and future-proof.

Storage, Conveying, Picking: How Efficient Is Your Production Supply?

The aim of efficient production logistics is to optimize the flow of materials from incoming goods to the raw materials warehouse and production to the finished goods warehouse to shorten the lead time of production, meaning to reduce the time from work order to completion of the product.

Whether in mechanical engineering, plastics processing or another sector of the manufacturing industry, smooth intralogistics is required to handle the enormous number of raw materials, semi-finished products, and vendor parts. Everything must be in the right place at the right time and in the right quantity - this is the only way to keep your production running smoothly and economically.

This has become abundantly clear in the past: In the face of repeated disruptions to global supply chains, many companies have found it difficult to maintain production. Those who had built up their own stocks of raw materials had a clear advantage here. Close integration of production and logistics is therefore the best way to remain flexible and competitive in the long term.

Your Industry – Our Solution!

Production logistics is only as good as the systems that keep your goods moving. We offer you everything you need for effective distribution: With modular, scalable solutions and our intelligent logistics software WAMAS, we ensure just-in-time material supply in your production.

Whether classic warehousing and conveyor technology, automated high-bay warehouses, shuttle or picking systems: We support you with tailor-made components that fit seamlessly into your system and can be flexibly adapted to new conditions and future growth. In this way, we make your processes even more efficient - and accompany you step by step on the way to automating your production logistics.

Reach Your Goal Faster: Optimize Incoming Goods Processes

Our semi- and fully automated picking and storage systems save you valuable time compared to manual incoming goods processes. Do you need bundled items of different variants and sizes? Our intelligent solutions also make it easy to create KITs of different goods.

Thanks to the perfect interaction of all components, all details of your delivery can also be recorded, and the flow of information maintained throughout. In this way, you always have an overview of all products - and can increase the throughput of your production through seamless processes in incoming goods.

Top Performance: Improve Production Supply

With the help of conveyor technology, tugger trains or automated guided vehicles, we enable you to connect your warehouse directly to production. Requirements are automatically recorded, replenishment is triggered, and your empty container management can also be integrated. As a result, you benefit from the best possible utilization of your machines and avoid process-related downtimes.

Is your company growing? No problem: our high-density storage solutions create additional space that you can use for new machines or additional production lines. Automated storage, conveying and picking also have a qualitative impact on your production: Smart solutions such as our robots ensure particularly gentle product handling and thus minimize your error rate.

The Workplace of the Future: Countering the Shortage of Skilled Workers

Are you also experiencing a shortage of skilled workers in your industry? With our automated logistics solutions, you can compensate for missing workers and maintain your production even in high sickness rates or short-term absences. You gain planning security, increase the efficiency of your production - and save on personnel costs.

At the same time, by automating your production logistics, you create a more attractive workplace for your employees: Ergonomic concepts such as our semi-automatic picking solutions reduce physical strain and make manual work much more pleasant. Safety in your workshop is also significantly improved using state-of-the-art technologies.
