The collaboration began in 2008

The collaboration began back in 2008 with the introduction of the standard software in Pullheim. As part of an ongoing adaptation and optimization process, the partners subsequently connected additional branches and digitalized processes, as well as continuously expanding the functional scope of the WMS, including applications for processing value-added services (VAS). The pL-Store® WMS has been in operation at the Logistics Campus Eschweiler since the fourth quarter of 2021.

Advantages of the proLogistik Group software

With its end-to-end digitalized processes, Hammer is able to implement its clients’ multi-channel concepts in the best possible way.
