Awarded the contract as a result of its impressive track record in delivering innovative picking systems using state of the art, technically advanced components, SSI Schaefer has already begun work civil works to expand LIDL's logistics centre in Kirchheim/Teck, Germany, through the installation of an automated order-picking warehouse.
Intralogistics specialist SSI Schaefer will project manage and build a high bay warehouse with five aisles holding approximately 15,000 pallet storage positions equipped with the pallet conveyor technology.
Next to it, a Schaefer Tray System (STS) holding 16,000 storage positions on five levels will be built, serving as a buffer to items by layer after the pallets pass through automatic de-palletising in goods receiving.
Schaefer's Case Picking (SCP) system will also be installed due to its order-related picking of individual packages in parallel multi-access mode, providing optimum efficient order-picking processing.
