Renewal through Retrofits

Mannheim and Heppenheim are Logwin locations in Germany with a high degree of expertise in the chemicals industry. Among others, we operate an automated high-bay storage facility with space for a total of 41,000 Euro pallets.

Increasing
Process Speed

In Mannheim, Logwin operates, among other facilities, an automatic high-bay warehouse with room to store 16,000 Euro pallets. Containers, pallets, and loose goods are brought in by truck and rail and processed there. Numerous value-added services offer particular benefit: from relabeling and treatment to transferring of liquid products from intermediate bulk containers into canisters and bottles. For one of the major customers in the field of treatment chemicals, 1,000 pallets are unloaded, stocked, commissioned, and reloaded for further transport each day. At this level of throughput, it is not only every second that counts, but also every tiny reduction the rate of error. To be able to meet the increasing requirements of the customers and the market with regard to both factors over the long term, the storage technology was comprehensively retrofitted in 2018 and, in 2019/2020, the complete IT infrastructure and software were modernized. The revamping of the storage technology consisted of the conveyor technology elements, controls and sensors, and the use of a new visualization system for error management. In terms of software, a new warehouse management system was introduced and the material flow calculator was updated. Direct integration of the customers ensures a dynamic and secure exchange of data. 

Modern Warehouse
Technology

 

With the same objectives of increased speed and facility availability, as well as improved process quality, Logwin carried out a similar retrofit in the fully automatic high-bay storage facility for 25,000 pallets in Heppenheim. This location offers its customers in the chemicals industry storage and distribution logistics services, commissioning and packaging, sea and air freight processing, and labeling. Storing hazardous materials and water-polluting substances are among the specific challenges, as well as the high standards of safety. As a value-added service, solid and liquid chemicals are transferred to smaller containers and prepared for shipment in a sampling room. In Heppenheim, the mechanical and control technology of the storage facility as well as the IT were put through a comprehensive modernization process as well. The newly introduced warehouse management system uses the potential of the modernized technology for the faster and more efficient processing of orders. With substantial investments in state-of-the-art logistics – both in existing as well as newly constructed logistics centers – Logwin supports the continuous growth of its customers and ensures sustainable and high-performance handling of logistics services.
