Modernizing warehouses: Adapting to changing conditions

Due to the increasing diversity of customer interests, there are often several specifications for a product. The warehousing required for this is complex and subject to constantly changing conditions. When a warehouse is modernized, structures are put to the test in order to ensure future throughput volumes and guarantee the warehouse's efficiency.

Aspects affected by warehouse modernization:

  • Intralogistics structures and processes
  • System components, including control and conveyor technology
  • Warehouse management system

Basically, warehouse modernization involves adapting the warehouse infrastructure to changed capacities, storage modules and the like. Depending on the focus, different objectives are pursued:

  • Increase in the storage capacity utilization rate
  • Reduction of the storage cost rate
