Electronics wholesaler Sonepar equips new logistics center with AutoStore solution from Kardex
3 April 2023, Company News
To better serve the greater Berlin area, Sonepar is building a new logistics center in Werder (Havel) near Berlin. In the future, all material groups will be processed and delivered from this logistics hub. To process the small consignments as efficiently as possible, Sonepar reviewed the possibility of an automated storage system. Due to its unbeatable storage density ratio combined with a very high throughput, AutoStore was able to prevail as the optimal solution. The intralogistics expert, Kardex, was commissioned to plan and implement the tailor-made AutoStore solution. In addition to the automation of the small parts logistics, the cable cutting in the logistics center is also to be automated. Here, Sonepar relies on the tried and tested Mlog technology, which was assigned to Kardex Mlog parallel to the AutoStore project.
