Swisslog wins £16m order from Hama

Hama, which specialises in accessories for multimedia, photo, consumer electronics and telecommunications, has commissioned Swisslog to redesign the picking systems and shipping area at its central logistics centre in Germany.

The order value amounts to approximately £16 million.

The picking concept is designed to create flexibility alongside a increased throughput performance enabling Hama to respond to the changing requirements of its business partners while continuing to operate quickly and reliably.

Hama is the first German company to deploy the SmartCarrier light goods technology developed by Swisslog in the Servus Intralogistics joint venture. SmartCarrier is a warehousing and transport system that is used in dynamic buffer warehouses and for the modern integration of picking stations.
