LOGISTICS CENTER AT THE HEADQUARTER
WORKFLOW IN RECORD TIME
With our cutting-edge logistics centre at our headquarters in Monheim, we can respond to orders from our retailers at lightning speed. Orders we receive by 1:00 p.m. are shipped the same day. We send a total of around 3,500 packages from our headquarters to various sales locations every day.
ALL ROADS LEAD TO MONHEIM
Our products come from all over, but no matter what the delivery route is, these countless packages have one thing in common – they’re expected in our incoming goods department. Every day, 2,000 pallets are sorted and checked by Quality Assurance there. Afterwards, the goods are transported straight to our various warehouses or shipped to numerous retailers.
Logistics meets IT Our storage consists of manual high-level open storage, two automatic high-rack storage systems, an automatic box storage area and a highly dynamic Smart Carrier shuttle warehouse. Each individual storage system has its own advantages, but we can only have smooth logistics if they all work together perfectly.
