The Klingele Group opens a new logistics centre at its Werne site in Germany. It covers an area of 15,500 m2 and has now created space for over 20,000 pallets in combination with the existing warehouse capacities, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The Klingele Group is investing in the modernisation of its entire logistics and tripling its logistics capacities at the Werne site with the expansion of the logistics centre in North Rhine-Westphalia.
The reason for the investment of 10 million euros: Klingele's customers are increasingly using just-in-time deliveries, where goods are supplied precisely when the delivery is required on site. This requires a modern and efficient infrastructure, flexibility and optimal organisation.
The new logistics centre replaces three external warehouses in Bergkamen, Hamm and the Netherlands. The amalgamation of logistics in a large centre reduces transport costs, CO2 emissions and truck traffic by saving on up to 25 truck journeys a day.
The logistics centre has been built as a bulk storage warehouse for a high level of efficiency when loading trucks. By equipping the centre with RFID technology, this also optimises the processes in the internal logistics. Goods are easy to find through the warehouse management system with precise bay location; goods are booked in and out automatically via a link to the SAP system.
The Klingele Group is one of the leading independent manufacturers of corrugated base paper and corrugated cardboard packaging.
