Furnished with efficient handling

12 February 2015

Automated warehouse solution provider TGW is implementing an efficient materials handling operation for Switzerland’s largest furniture retailer, Pfister.

By implementing an automated mini-load warehouse at Pfister’s logistics centre in Suhr, TGW will boost efficiency by moving away from the previous "person-to-goods” picking method and increase the retailer’s materials handling potential.

In addition to facilitating "shelf-ready” replenishment of stores and the resulting reduction in labour, the automatic warehouse will also provide more than 75,000 storage locations for an array of Pfister products.

The mini-load warehouse will be erected with a silo construction design, which means racks with a capacity for the 75,460 storage locations will assume the load-bearing function of the building.

TGW will demonstrate its system integrator capabilities by providing the storage and conveyor equipment, including intelligent software, as well as the silo cladding.
