Ready, Steady, Go!

Wherever distribution is discussed,
efficiency and speed hold the potential for profit for each company.

All processes need to be evaluated:
from receiving goods along the production steps to dispatch
with only one aim:
goods just in time at point of sale.

Your customer defines:
type of goods, timing, type of carrier etc. for his delivery.

Customer orientation means to offer such service.
Schönenberger supports you!

Whether contract logistics or mail order, shop distribution or stock turnover - including today's topic e-commerce -
it always comes to process single items with high precision and the customer on mind.
The target is to improve all processes, thus streamline the flows, lower the costs and increase productivity and efficiency.

Using the cube revitalizing existing buildings

Renowned company through the ages / in changing times…

The company founded 175 years ago change their production structures thoroughly.

From fully integrated textile company that produced everything from yarn until the finished clothing today it's a progressively run company with a central distibution centre.

Several areas in different building levels - sometimes more than 150m apart - were efficiently connected and equipped with a Schönenberger transporting system.

The extensive product range is processed flat and hanging. Every year more than 350 shops and 3,500 retailers are supplied by the central distribution centre.

Warehouse

Calm Movements

SCHÖNENBERGER understands "storage" as a kind of stand-still transport in a workflow. Thus SCHÖNENBERGER tends to design "storage" as a dynamic, continuous process from raw material storage to the point of sale.
Planning includes the use of full building capacity in width, length AND height! If necessary to the remotest corner.
Thus the sotrage capacity can be enhhanced and sometimes building new can be spared.  > read more

Dynamic storage for production …
under the roof

Manufacturer of fittings and big parts

The alternative options were: either a new building
or optimize the use of the existing buidling.
The customer was keen to consider alternative technologies.

The suprising result was to use the shed space of the production building.
Along 2 buffer circles and vertical conveyor the parts on barcoded single carriers are stored, sorted and are taken to production by call.
e-log = event driven logistic: every barcoded trolley is unique.

This unconventional solution saved half of the originally budgeted investment.

Distribution

Out with it!

Within the supply chain this is the key to "distribution":
to know well before the merchandise comes into the warehouse how many items need to get to their point of sale - and when.

E-commerce is the progression: orders fly in round the clock and need to be processed as fast as possible and correct down to the very last order line.

Like a boomerang many of the shipped goods will presumably come back as returns. The challenge of this event-driven-logistics (e-log) is to handle each item individually.

The answer to this is:
the best logistic solution involves the least effort.
Processes can run highly automated with manual operations where appropriate.

e-commerce following mail order business and spare parts logistic

Good – better – Schönenberger

Actually logistic services for e-commerce, mail order and spare parts supply ask for magic wand waving:
Thousands and hundred-thousands of different items are stored, picked, sorted, packed and shipped in cycles tuned to seconds.

"Oops … here you are" - the smallest size, the weirdest colour for the finest customer."

For SCHÖNENBERGER systems love to engage with such challenges - successfully.

Mail Order

One of Europe's biggest Mail Order Companies for software, computer accessories and lifestyle products

More than 14,000 different articles and more than 20,000 parcels per day are shipped. With SCHÖNENBERGER an excellent grade of mechanization was achieved: the company can now handle capacity leaps and achieved a rise in daily performance.
With a hanging transport system in the high bay storage together the available room was used in full dimension and the existing storage system was incorporated to serve the new one.
All operational areas in the new and existing parts of the building were conneted by horizontal and gravity conveyors transporting 300 trolleys with 1.5 cbm capacity and 80kg loaded weight. The result was a picking system with high fault tolerance. The main role of the operators at picking and identification of the items was highly taken into account and incorporated within the overall material flow.
Shop Logistics - extreme requirements

Keep things moving…

Contract and shop logistics support retailers. The supply chain is formed by a number of individual steps.

SCHÖNENBERGER systems support a seamless flow: from input, QC, putting on hangers, ticketing, finishing, storage, packing until dispatch.

On time ... at the point of sale !
