SSI Schaefer has expanded the logistics centre of food retailer Lidl in Kirchheim/Teck, Germany with an automated picking warehouse.
In addition to a Schaefer Case Picking (SCP) System, the scope of equipment and services supplied includes a high bay racking system with five aisles and around 15,000 pallet storage spaces, plus a Schaefer Tray System (STS) with 16,000 storage positions on five storage levels. The greatest challenges in implementing this were the very high requirements on pallet composition and the handling of packages.
The system now guarantees optimally packed pallets for transporting and then unloading goods at the store. The project was completed successfully last year. In addition to the implementation of this modular, scalable total solution that can be extended virtually without limit.
Lidl particularly valued the partnership and solution-oriented collaboration with SSI Schaefer.
