Logistics center with high-bay warehouse

With a new compactly-built logistics system, optimized use of space and intelligent material flows, Körber lifted Greiner Bio-One’s intralogistics to a new level


The existing high-bay warehouse dating from the 1980s could no longer cope with the dynamic development of the company’s business in the last few years. The company’s challenges included:

  • Storing goods were held at additional locations
  • Extended capacity and greater efficiency were needed

Solutions Implemented:

Greiner Bio-One completed a retrofit of the existing plant to ensure that it could keep up with increasing demands. The company implemented:

  • Stacker cranes and conveyor system including control and interface
  • Camera systems on board the stacker cranes
  • Stages in the picking area
  • Crossovers for conveyor systems
  • Automation Solutions


The new technology lifted Greiner Bio-One’s intralogistics to a new level, providing a variety of benefits:

  • Doubled capacity of pallet storing
  • Efficient layout of existing company building
  • Warehouse performance increased by a factor of five
