With the aim of increasing inventory security, creating transparency throughout, and ensuring batch tracking, the Gold Ochsen brewery, an Ulm original, has realigned its beverage logistics.

Implementation of the warehouse management system pL-Store®, including proLogistik hardware:
pro-V-pad terminals and voice-assisted picking with Pick by Voice.
Prepared for any challenge
Beverage demand naturally varies depending on the weather and the season. Major sporting events, such as the soccer World Cup, also have an impact on the daily order and pick numbers to be processed. By implementing a modern and flexibly scalable warehouse management system, the traditional Ulm brewery is now able to respond quickly to changes in ordering behavior. New IT-supported processes can also be set up more quickly.
Since then, the warehouse management system has proven its worth in the sometimes hectic day-to-day work in the Gold Ochsen brewery warehouse, where around 300 different items are permanently stocked and around 20 truck tours have to be handled every day. In addition, there are self-collectors, whose number averages 45 per day.
