The Solution

  • We installed a solution with which we could save valuable space and respond flexibly to future requirements.
  • First of all, the experts replaced the manually operated store with two Vstore. Because of the high total payload of each individual Vstore (up to 60 tons), these were installed in warehouse. This means the 8-meter-high Vstore use the full height of warehouse.
  • This has reduced the overall storage area from about 120 square meters to the footprint of the lifts, which is 20 square meters, thus freeing up valuable floor space
  • The time-consuming “man to goods” method of the manually operated warehouse has now been replaced by “goods to man” picking at the VStore. As a result, picking errors have been reduced significantly.
