viastore implements new logistics center for Secura group
High-Tech Warehouse Technology with Potential for Growth
Secura Industriebeteiligungen GmbH has selected intralogistics specialist viastore to plan and implement a new logistics center in Burgbernheim in Southern Germany. Secura wants to centralize its logistics activities at that location in order to lay the foundations for further growth.
Secura Industriebeteiligungen supplies its customers with products of fixation technology and elements of noise and fire protection, among other products. The group includes several distribution and production companies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. One of the companies of the group, UBB Umformtechnik GmbH, is already based in Burgbernheim. The new logistics center will be used to increase product availability, reduce lead times, improve service quality, and extend order deadlines for next day delivery for the entire group.
viastore will implement a unit-load pallet warehouse with approx. 9,100 storage locations in a rack-supported building, and a shuttle system. The viaflex2 shuttle system will initially provide space for approx. 17,000 containers, and can be extended to up to 28,400 units, if required. "That way, Secura is already prepared for future growth today", says Tom Preller, Sales Director of viastore. viastore will also install a high-capacity conveyor system and a large cantilever warehouse, and equip all warehouse components with cutting-edge controls.
The entire system will be controlled by the viastore viadat warehouse management system (WMS). The WMS will control all processes between goods receipt and goods issue in an intelligent, efficient and reliable manner. "Initially, we had looked to do the facility and the WMS separately", says Markus Irmler, Director of Materials Management and Logistics of the SECURA group. "But viastore’s complete solution convinced us to combine both segments. And we will enjoy the advantage to have only one contact for the entire project." Secura will be among the first users to obtain the brand new viadat 9.0 software, which features an optimized user interface and extended functionality.
