For this purpose, SSI SCHAEFER is constructing a 6-aisle channel storage system designed from two modules with a total of 28,332 pallet storage locations. The two modules are connected to each other by pallet conveying systems. In each of the two modules, three Exyz storage-retrieval machines (SRM) are used. The SSI Exyz are each equipped with SSI Orbiter LHD as load handling device (LHD). The Orbiter moves the pallets on the lower levels of the racking system in the multi-deep channels. In the upper area of the rack aisles, six SSI Lift & Run systems are working per module. They also have SSI Orbiter LHD. The order pallets ready for dispatch are buffered there.

For optimal material flows, SSI SCHAEFER will install a total of 1.4 km of pallet conveyor technology, 13 vertical lifts to supply two picking levels as well as numerous peripheral devices, such as automated label applicators, film wrappers and information displays for the loading status. To ensure the stability and safety of the operation, SSI SCHAEFER contributed with a very detailed soil analysis, in which it considered the size of the warehouse, the number of employees, the weight of the loads and the fact that the construction is in a seismic zone. The results of the studies were incorporated into the planning of the racking system and thus made a decisive contribution to plant optimization. Completion of the logistics center is scheduled for 2021.
