Food Retail solutions by SSI SCHAEFER

Flexible and scalable system solutions for the food industry

The food trade is exceptionally demanding for intralogistics specialists. The technological development of the branch business is increasingly supplemented by a rapidly growing online food trade. SSI SCHAEFER provides flexible, scalable, modular solutions for both areas. These have thoroughly proven themselves under real conditions.

The food trade has long been evolving and was focused on constantly optimizing existing logistics networks. Early on, SSI SCHAEFER set the benchmark for branch supply and delivery with manual, partially-automated and fully automated solutions. Now, the growing online food trade is creating entirely new logistics challenges for food retailers. SSI SCHAEFER provides scalable solutions that enable both established retail chains and ambitious start-ups to efficiently serve this new market. These solutions cover the entire spectrum of activities beginning with the incoming goods and ending at the customer’s doorstep.
