Premiere at proLogistik: on 14 July the Children’s Day with a colourful supporting programme took place for the first time. Seventeen children aged two to 13 accompanied mum or dad to work and had a lot of fun together. After a short reception with juice and snacks, the children first explored the house with their parents and were allowed to look at the offices. During the tour, the kicker in the kitchen was seized with enthusiasm. Afterwards, the rally by the company started with four stops:In the hardware department, the children made their own name bracelets, depending on their age, or were allowed to use the screwdriver themselves by screwing on a PC cooling plate. This was especially exciting for older kids. At the station of the marketing department, the girls and boys were able to get really creative when creating their own buttons. Colorful works of art were created such as rainbow, BVB and proLogistik buttons which were then also allowed to be put together themselves. At the next station, the People and Culture team offered various team games, while at the fourth station the children could watch a “cinema presentation” of the children’s knowledge program “Checkerwelt”.

Mit Retrofit zu einer modernen Lagerlogistik

The ongoing dynamics of change also pose a challenge to intralogistics. Flexible, agile and at the same time efficient processes are a “must-have” to be able to meet these challenges in the long run. However, investing lavishly is sometimes not an option. Alternatively, great things can be achieved with a retrofit. Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) play a crucial role here. Change has always been a constant. But the pace has picked up in the face of the pandemic and changing demand patterns. In the process, it also became or is becoming apparent that systems and processes that have proven themselves over a long period of time are reaching their limits and, figuratively speaking, are showing signs of chronic exhaustion. The development in online retailing is also contributing to this. While e-commerce has been established as the “new normal” in the B2C sector for years, but has received a further boost due to Corona, this sales channel is also increasingly determining B2B business. Intralogistics must also be able to withstand the associated demands. If this is only partially successful, however, it is not necessarily a question of the existing plant or the existing storage system. Instead, the required target state in … Read more

Erfolgsgeschichte der Lagerverwaltungssoftware bei Logis Move

From paper to digital intralogistics in just six months Sideshore AG is a young, dynamic company in Wolfhausen (Canton of Zurich), which has been successfully active in sports wholesale since 2006. As an exclusive Swiss importer and retailer, Sideshore sells trendy sports equipment and apparel from numerous manufacturers and brands. At the Wolfhausen site, approximately 14 employees store up to 10,000 different articles and process an average of 40 to 50 customer orders per day. Looking back at the time without a digital warehouse management Since the company was founded, the company and the variety of articles have grown considerably. Before digitization with the LOGIS MOVE warehouse management software, the warehouse extended over two parts of the building, each with two levels, where the ordered items were picked according to customer specifications. The employees had to travel long distances and were only supported to a limited extent by the ERP system. This led to inefficiencies and errors within the logistics processes, as no warehouse management software and no MDE devices were in use until then. Criteria which were important to Sideshore AG for the commissioning of a digital intralogistics system – including consideration of the strategic goals with regard to … Read more

The Dortmund-based proLogistik Group is the German market leader with its warehouse management software and specially developed industrial PCs. Together with the Swiss companies Dataphone and Xelog, it is now setting its sights on the European market.

Effizienzsteigerung mit pl-Store

With the surge in online orders since the outbreak of the pandemic, peaks are a daily occurrence for many retailers. The booster for successful fulfillment is a WMS (Warehouse Management System) that keeps inventories online and continuously adapts processes to the current order volume. As the German E-Commerce and Distance Selling Trade Association (bevh) has determined, the industry will record consolidated growth of 23.2 percent in the first half of 2021. This corresponds to a goods value of around 45.2 billion euros. Whether this figure will weaken again following the relaxations in stationary retailing remains questionable. This is because people have come to appreciate the convenience of online shopping around the clock. It is not only companies that have not used this sales channel to date that are being called upon to set up store systems on the Internet or with providers such as Amazon & Co. At the same time, existing logistics structures must be aligned with the new multi-channel purchasing reality, which requires high availability of goods and short delivery times, and optimized in terms of efficiency. These challenges can only be mastered with the help of a high-performance warehouse management system (WMS) that seamlessly maps the specifics … Read more
