As planned, the two new halls and the structure closing the gap between Steel Service Centre halls 3 and 6 will be completed at the end of the year. Together with SSI SCHÄFER’s warehouse management software WAMAS, these approx. 12,000 m² facilities will significantly improve internal logistics processes and reduce loading times. This will result in a modern order processing system for the growing Steel Service Centre.
Increasing demand, new areas of application and steady growth in customer numbers were behind the decision to extend the capacity of the Steel Service Centre yet again. Priority was given to increasing the safety and speed of the overall intralogistics capacity of the new building. These goals were achieved by a new unloading and loading concept, which allows a higher throughput and at the same time minimizes turnaround and waiting times for lorries. This guarantees smooth loading in a 3-shift operation. The new intralogistics are controlled by a warehouse management system, which is designed to comprehensively map and permanently improve all requirements. The system receives the data required for control via a direct connection to the SAP system and so, by integrating control of the raw material stock, production and dispatch, an optimal material flow can be created.
