The VVA (Vereinigte Verlagsauslieferung) Group, an affiliate of Arvato Supply Chain Solutions, has reshaped its distribution centre in Guetersloh in Germany.
SSI Schäfer has built an automated shuttle warehouse with order picking system in the existing facility on a limited space, expanding the capacity in the area of available item containers to about 60,000 spaces. Besides the general growth of the business, the extension was triggered by plans to increase picking intensity.
The service provider delivers media products from its three German locations in Guetersloh, Verl and Gilching to retailers and end consumers worldwide for more than 200 clients.
A storage and order-picking system for a throughput of 16 million articles per year was implemented on a limited space of 900 sqm. (sh)
