EDEKA Nord expands its logistics center with WITRON

Indhold fra partner Hvad er dette?

Parkstein, Germany. EDEKA Handelsgesellschaft Nord GmbH is underlining its positive business development by expanding its state-of-the-art logistics center in Zarrentin (Germany) by installing two additional Case Order Machines (COM) during ongoing operations. The general contractor from Parkstein (Upper Palatinate, Germany) who designed and realized the distribution center, was also awarded the new expansion contract thanks to its proven technology.

The modular expandability has been one of the most important aspects of the joint design of WITRON and EDEKA Nord when the project originally started. The system now benefits from this conceptual foresight. With two additional COMs, four additional stacker cranes, and 45,000 storage locations in the automated tray warehouse, as well as an additional fully automated stretch-wrapper, the pick volume of the system can be significantly increased. Once expansion is completed at the end of Q3 / 2019, EDEKA Nord will have a total of 16 Case Order Machines in operation resulting in the fully automated case picking onto pallets and roll containers. In addition to the OPM, picking is also carried out with WITRON’s mechanized systems DPS (Dynamic Picking System) and DPP (Display Pallet Picking System). A fully automated shipping buffer optimizes the dispatch process. The storage and supply of the logistics areas with empty pallets / roll containers will be controlled via an automated empties buffer. 

EDEKA Nord supplies more than 280 markets with almost 17,000 different dry goods from the logistics center in Zarrentin, which has a footprint of 76,000 square meters / 818,000 square feet.

Intelligent dynamics for the promise of freshness

Three material flows, three shipping areas, three load carriers, and three different target customer groups – ASKO’s new fresh food warehouse in Norway was not much of a quantitative challenge for WITRON’s technical systems, but rather the logic and dynamics in the processes, the integration of the technology, and the design were decisive for a successful start-up.

Wide product range - very short delivery times

Phoenix Contact, a global player in the field of electrical engineering, electronics and automation technology, will once again expand its automatic small parts warehouse (AS/RS), located at its headquarters in Blomberg (Germany). The goal is to significantly increase dynamics and efficiency of the logistics location. More than 30,000 items are already available for next day delivery when ordered by 4pm. The implementation takes place during ongoing operation in the existing facility. The order for the design and realization was awarded to WITRON Logistik + Informatik GmbH. The realization was characterized by a joint thorough design phase of the two project partners. Following productive use of the expansion in the third quarter of 2020, many thousands of packages for small volume orders and totes for larger order will be shipped on a peak day to customers and sales companies located in more than 50 countries.
