Simon Hegele to build a new logistics centre with TGW
Simon Hegele is an owner operated, long-standing logistics service contractor with over 2,000 employees and more than 90 years of experience concerning complete supply chain handling. One of the biggest business segments of Hegele is the distribution of spare parts. For this area Hegele is going to build a new logistics centre of 50,000 square metres (approximately 538,195 square feet) at Raunheim, near Frankfurt/Main. One part of the logistics centre will be an automated mini-load storage system for cartons and totes, which will handle the spare parts processing for diverse customers of Hegele.
The automated mini-load system consists of a five-aisle warehouse with Mustang Evolution stacker cranes and Twister load handling devices, a pick-up and delivery area with ten goods receiving stations, eight picking and four multifunctional working stations, which will be valuable for the VAS-handling (value added services) and the shipping.
The storage is able to be enlarged to nine aisles. One part of the order for TGW is the warehouse control system CI_LOG. CI_LOG will be repsonsible for the coordination of the installation and the storage organisation and will provide an interface to the existing software of Hegele.
TGW's continuous professionalism and its competency for project processing as well as the numerous technical opportunities to handle and store cartons and totes within the same system were crucial in Hegele's decision for TGW.
