To effectively store, pick and prepare the products from inbound to delivery, DCH Auriga partners with SSI SCHAEFER Thailand for solutions to optimized storage space and ensure the storage system under temperature-controlled, and with the right technology to prevent picking errors.

Storage and Picking all in one solution
SSI SCHAEFER's concept for Healthcare and Cosmetics logistics has been proven effective and reliable for many warehouse owners. The material handling flow of temperature-sensitive healthcare products is critical and the need to keep the inventory cycle short and accurate is paramount.


The SSI LOGIMAT® simplifies the order processing workflow, using the goods-to-person principle, processes the orders from the ERP system to pick and replenish orders received from hospitals, clinics and general stores. 
Virtually error-free, the WAMAS® LOGIMAT software solution controls the lot management, allows the medical supplies to be stored and picked according to either FIFO or LIFO storage strategy, as well as expiration or sell-by date.


Cost-saving - Reduced warehouse footprint and electricity 
Modelled like an elevator shaft in a building, the SSI LOGIMAT® is fitted with a blower to manage a controlled-temperature of 2°C to 8°C in the vertical space. Within a 20m² footprint, it brings the electricity cost down by 60% and saves up to 90% storage space.
