Maximum Flexibility and Fast Access to Materials Initial Situation The Weltbild publishing group produces books, CDs, videos and games for literally millions of people. Approximately 60 million products are shipped annually with projections for an even higher turnover in the future. This translates into over 100,000 customer orders per day at peak times. In order to serve its customers even more quickly and efficiently, an order fulfillment distribution center was built in Augsburg, Germany. System Solution The logistics center is divided into several areas. The largest is a 14-aisle unit-load automated storage / retrieval system (AS/RS), serviced by 14 fully automatic viapal S/R machines. Directly connected is the partial quantity AS/RS that is equipped with 32 viasprint S/R machines designed for goodsrelated pre-picking of orders. Also integrated into the overall system is a 6-aisle automatic mini-load system for the storage of small parts which is supplied by 6 viaspeed S/R machines. In terms of warehouse capacity and control technology, the new distribution center is designed to provide maximum throughput and error-free order picking. This is ensured by the viad@t warehouse management and material flow control system, which is a fundamental prerequisite for Weltbild's e-commerce business. The Result The combination of AS/RS, partial quantity AS/RS and MLS with a total of 52 S/R machines in conjunction with the viad@t software assures superior flexibility and fast access to materials.
