SSI Schaefer has expanded the logistics centre of food retailer Lidl in Kirchheim/Teck, Germany with an automated picking warehouse.
In addition to a Schaefer Case Picking (SCP) System, the scope of equipment and services supplied includes a high bay racking system with five aisles and around 15,000 pallet storage spaces, plus a Schaefer Tray System (STS) with 16,000 storage positions on five storage levels.
The greatest challenges in implementing this were the demanding requirements on pallet composition and the handling of packages.
The project was completed last year. The system guarantees optimally packed pallets for transporting and then unloading goods at the store.
