Productivity and resource efficiency are the challenges of modern warehousing. However, in view of continuous changes in business processes, changing product ranges and increasing order numbers with decreasing batch sizes, the existing structures cannot keep up with the current demands. With Retrofit projects you can modernize internal logistics to the state of the art - during continued operations and at low cost.
Sustainable Retrofit concepts improve warehousing
Through the use of efficiency-optimized and energy-saving drive systems, through lightweight construction of the components as well as low rolling resistance material combinations, energy consumption can be reduced by a double-digit figure.
According to experts, the modernization of automated warehouses can open up optimization potentials of up to 30 percent by improving stock availability and reducing personnel costs for warehouse management. Another advantage over new projects: Retrofit measures can usually be performed cheaper, faster and during operations. And through intelligent, sustainable Retrofit concepts you can combine efficiency and flexibility with modern aspects of green logistics to your advantage.
The Procter & Gamble production site Crailsheim near Stuttgart successfully implemented as a part of a Retrofit project at the distribution center a pallet Roller Flow System and thus expanded the site to become a central distribution center for operations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Even here, measurable improvements of approximately 35 percent were achieved.
