In March 2017 Geberit has put the extension of the logistics centre in the German city of Pfullendorf into operation.
The honeycomb warehouse is home to 1,800 honeycombs, which are used as shelf spaces for Geberit pipes.
With the expansion of the logistics centre Geberit developed a completely new concept for the storage, order picking and shipping of the long goods.
The technology used, such as the glove scanner, enables employees to carry out their work efficiently, safely and in an ergonomic manner.
The flexible logistics system and logistics know-how make it possible to quickly respond to the ever-changing logistics requirements.
The material flow at the logistics centre is designed so that human labour and the degree of automation are in perfect harmony with one another.
The flexible way in which the modern workstations are organised is essential in order to be able to respond to customer requirements.
Geberit uses highly efficient and interlinked workflows. For example, three steps – picking, packing and consolidating – are carried out in a single process.
