From Retail Logistics to High-Performance Multi-Channel Logistics

The Challenge

Since 1966, when Dipl.-Ing. Fust AG was founded, it has established itself as the largest supplier of household appliances, consumer electronics and computers on the Swiss market. Because of the continued growth of e-commerce, this subsidiary of Coop has invested in the modernization and expansion of its logistics site in Oberbüren. The goal was to centralize and double warehouse capacity in order to eliminate the need for external warehouses.

The Solution

SSI SCHAEFER'S integrated logistics solution gives the company the ideal equipment to expand its product range, increase storage capacity, improve product availability and adapt flexibly to new performance requirements. The construction took only two years; the logistics center, which had initially focused on supplying stores, was then transformed into a highly efficient multi-channel solution facility. In the wake of the pandemic, the system proved to be an extremely flexible logistics solution, to meet the rapidly changing requirements on order structures (B2B vs. B2C), despite its high degree of automation. With the Fust project, SSI SCHAEFER has been able to successfully continue its long-standing cooperation with the Coop group
