ROSSMANN

The everything anytime machine

The challenge

Rossmann, a leading drugstore chain, aimed to enhance the distribution capacity in its central warehouse while leveraging existing infrastructure. This happened amid several challenges including a wide array of products, strong seasonality and energy efficiency concerns:

  • Expanding the distribution capacity in the existing plant to support the growing number of products
  • 18,000 products to be distributed to more than 2,200 stores in Germany
  • Demand for safe and reliable conveyance of hazardous or fragile goods
  • Requirement to reduce energy usage and boost sustainability

 

The solution

The Interroll Modular Pallet Platform (MPP), capable of handling loads up to 1,500 kilograms, was seamlessly integrated into Rossmann’s material-flow system to run in perfect harmony with the Interroll Modular Conveyor Platform (MCP). The MPP, with a tailored combination of pallet conveyor modules and specialized conveyors such as transfers, lifts, and turntables, proved to be the optimal and future-proof solution for arriving pallets and managing the order picking area in Rossmann’s central warehouse. In addition, the utilization of 48-volt RollerDrive technology to power the MPP enables zero-pressure accumulation, ensuring the safe conveyance of even hazardous or fragile goods.
