Building a new logistics centre in Heppenheim and consolidating several warehouses into a single location will create a centralised logistics function. Groundbreaking for the new logistics centre from which JÄGER DIREKT will supply its customers around the world took place on 18 June 2015.
The SuPCIS-L8 warehouse management system will control and optimise all the logistics processes in the new warehouse – from goods receipt and storage location assignment to picking and shipping. Quality assurance and returns processing are also handled through SuPCIS-L8. Intelligent intralogistics concepts like a fully automated lifting beam conveyor warehouse as a shipping buffer, multi-order picking with pick-by-voice support and conversion to paperless picking reduce through times and minimise error rates. The newly reorganised intralogistics planned by Maier Intraplan GmbH, the Warehouse Management System from S&P and the latest in conveyor systems from Gebhardt Fördertechnik, the new central warehouse will have the capacity to process far more orders in a shorter time, making the way clear for further growth at JÄGER DIREKT.
"We decided on S&P as a strategic supplier because the Stuttgart software manufacturer has both a high level of logistics know-how and meaningful references, not to mention that S&P's excellent relations with their subsuppliers and project partners mean they can keep track of the different trades," says Jens Fischer, CEO of Jäger Fischer GmbH & Co. KG.
