Maximální využití plochy

The units, distributed in a three-shift regime from the distribution center, are bound for most of the car makers in Europe and others abroad, which means we must uphold the strictest security standards and the ability to trace back each unit.

Monitoring

Besides handling pallet units, the distribution center also provides re-packaging and sequencing of individual products from production to customer packaging, which provides the receiver the advantage of Just In Sequence deliveries for production processes. We also offer supplementary services, such as mechanical and hand washing of packaging.

The logistics process

begins in the transfer zone of the production facility and continues through the transport of the units to the distribution center; storing and cataloging each unit to a precise pallet and shelf position; dispatching of goods according to orders on FIFO principles; preparation of shipments, including the identification of units according to VDA principles; and loading on to vehicles for transport to end users.
