In the area of distribution logistics, customers are increasing their order frequency whilst the volume of each individual order reduces. Intralogistics systems must meet these requirements with increasing dynamics and automation. Staff must not be neglected in this development, since no logistics centre today works without the contribution of its employees. Therefore the improvement of operator ergonomics is also a main focus. The production logistics must be designed with increasing flexibility and cost effectiveness to ensure international competitiveness. The objective is staying competitive even in high cost countries. State-of-the-art storage systems provide a new level of efficiency that were unthinkable just a few years ago.
Parts, products and services must be available when they are needed. Production must have the requisite parts accessible at the assembly station. A retailer should deliver from the warehouse at short notice. GEBHARDT warehouse technology guarantees Just-in-Time delivery capability.
