Lead Consultant for West Expansion
Flourishing growth at Deutsche SiSi Werke Betriebs GmbH, manufacturer of the internationally renowned “Capri-Sun” brand, had necessitated an extension of the production and logistics capacities at its headquarters in Eppelheim. io-consultants was commissioned as a lead consultant for the implementation, standard operations, and complete organisation of the project.
New administration and production premises were erected on a new plot of land to the west of the existing site. The centrepiece of the logistics extension is a 40m-high high bay warehouse – a compact facility with around 49,000 storage places and a sorting function for customised loading.
In contrast to classic high bay warehouses with high miniload stackers per lane, this channel storage system serves each lane with five miniload stackers, and to bin and from bin transfers are handled by a channel vehicle known as an orbiter.
