LOGISTICS AND WAREHOUSING,
Salling Group A/S has consolidated the distribution of nonfood goods in their largs central warehouse in Århus. On that occasion they have cooperated with Adding for professional project management as well as getting their processes optimised.
Salling Group A/S includes the chain stores: Føtex, Bilka, Netto og Salling, and to manage all nonfood goods the construction of a new central warehouse in Århus was started in 2008. The commissioning began in 2010, where more and more product lines were gradually implemented.
Full automatic warehouse
All operations are highly automated and all storehouses are "manned" by automated picking cranes without manual operation. The palletising for the stores is carried out by the "goods-to-man" principle and is conducted on stationary working stations, where the goods are automatically transported to the employees according to a ceatain sequence.
The entire warehouse is managed by a specifically designet WMS (Warehouse Management System) that controls Bilka's E-commerce as well.
A challenging course
The project is among the largest and most complex logistics projects in Denmark, and during the course of events there have been a number of obstacles that needed to be dealt with. This has required a concentrated and very multi disciplinary effort from Adding.
Rasmus Graversen, Logistics Manager at Salling Group Nonfood states: ”Adding has through a long project course been responsible for managing the project during the commissioning of our nonfood warehouse in Århus as well as carrying our technical tasks. There has been various obstacles as well as a complex coordinating task - like e.g. involving suppliers and internal employees, which Adding has carried out with great professionalism and entusiasm”.
"In addtion to that Adding has specified many of the large and minor changes that have been carried out during the course of events. They have used their solid technical know-how within software, hardware, mechanics and logistical processes, which have been crucial for our efficiency", Rasmus Graversen continues.
