The new logistics center is equipped with the latest materials handling technology, thus ensuring fast throughput times and on-time delivery of customer orders. “We will handle around 1 million shipments annually at our facility here,” says Thorsten Wilkening, Head of Corporate Logistics at Endress+Hauser. The shipments will mainly involve cross-docking products, which are goods that are immediately turned around and distributed direct to the customer instead of being warehoused.
“Customer satisfaction is of the utmost priority for us. The new logistics center meets all of the requirements of a modern goods distribution center, thus allowing us to continue to smoothly fulfill customer orders and ensure on-time delivery,” says Oliver Blum, Corporate Director Supply Chain at Endress+Hauser. The Wörrstadt center offers 60 percent more space than the previous logistics center.
The dedication ceremony was held at the end of September together with Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, project developer Panattoni and general contractor List Bau from Bielefeld, Germany.
