Retrofit-solution during ongoing operation

In a comprehensive retrofit project Körber has improved Schnellecke's logistics center during continuous operation to highest system availability, and made the plant fit for the future.


The existing warehouse was in need of a modernization overhaul, but the 3PL supplier had no downtime and had to upgrade while maintaining operations. Schnellecke Logistics’ challenges included:

  • Capacity of miniload needed to be enlarged
  • Conveyor system could not cope with increased capacity

Solutions Implemented:

Schnellecke Logistics implemented a suite of modernized warehouse solutions to increase efficiency, including:

  • Adjustment MFS
  • Container and pallet conveyor systems
  • Working platform with incoming goods and repacking workstations
  • Maintenance platform at the container conveyor system


New system components and material flow changes have increased throughput by more than 25 percent. Additional benefits include:

  • Throughput increased from 380 boxes per hour to 480 boxes per hour (via small load carrier)
  • Availability of assembly parts for production supply in the automotive manufacturing site guaranteed for several more years
