WITRON Logistik + Informatik GmbH has announced that it has engaged in a second logistics project with Norwegian food retailer REMA 1000, having previously realized a full assortment logistics center in Stavanger for the group.
The Parkstein, Germany based business received the order for the design, implementation, and the on-site service of the new REMA distribution center in Vinterbro. The contract was signed in September 2016.
Once completed, the 50,000 square metre facility will supply 574 stores.
The fully automated and semi-automated WITRON picking systems OPM (Order Picking Machinery), DPS (Dynamic Picking System), and CPS (Car Picking System) will be in use for the new distribution center, which cover dry, fresh as well as frozen food. All cases will be picked and palletized in a store-friendly manner, meaning that all store layouts will be taken into consideration and shelf replenishment at the store will be much easier.
Just as it was for the project in Stavanger, the decisive criteria for the project in Vinterbro were high cost-efficiency, flexibility, ergonomics, densely packed store pallets, and maximum order consolidation. Based on an innovative warehouse management system, the WITRON solutions optimally met these requirements.
