New logistic centre
In 1992, the OTTO ROTH company moved into a new logistics centre in Stuttgart-Weilimdorf. The facility which covered an area of approx. 12,000m² consisted of an automated pallet warehouse and a warehouse for small parts designed as a tray warehouse. Goods-inwards and despatch areas and an underground car park form the remainder of the building.
Due to expansion beyond the region and purchasing policies as well as introduction of C-part management according to the Kanban principles there was a need for a large amount of warehousing space. This meant that expansion of the automatic warehouse, which was planned with the first building stage, could be tackled.
Together with the block warehouse, the logistics centre can offer space for almost 30,000 trays and some 8,700 pallet spaces. Products which are sold quickly are stored in the tray warehouse. The pallet stores are used for scheduling large quantities, for products with a slower turnover and for restocking the tray warehouse. Slow-moving and restock products are stored in the block warehouse along with some long-term products.
Picking can be carried out from all warehouse areas simultaneously. Two-stage picking means that the goods can be put together automatically. The whole system is designed for round-the-clock operation.
