Nominated for IFOY Award 2013 in the Forklift Truck Solutions Category: Jungheinrich

For many years the family owned Warimex enterprise, which specialises in the worldwide import and export of household and gift items ranging from cosmetics to kitchenware, handled its logistics activities manually in a rented warehouse in Kehl. The storage area was spread over three floors and there was no warehouse management system, so the Warimex management decided to look for a new and more efficient solution. They commissioned Jungheinrich to build a completely new logistics centre in Neuried near Offenburg with a design that not only optimises front-to-end goods transport and makes the movement of goods transparent but also achieves zero error rates. The project was completed in November 2012 after a construction period of just two months.

Nominated for IFOY Award 2013 in the Forklift Truck Solutions Category: STILL

In order to handle the annually growing turnover of goods while saving storage space and cutting costs, the Heideblume dairy in Elsdorf decided to centralise its external delivery warehouses in 2012 to create an automated logistics centre. The solution chosen by the company, which loads around 190,000 tons of dairy and delicatessen products in Elsdorf every year for dispatch to virtually all the leading German discount and retail chains, was developed by Still GmbH. The provider of forklift trucks and intralogistics systems not only uses conventional driverless transport systems but also automates its own standard trucks. As the latter can be operated both automatically and manually, this ensures maximum flexibility from the point of view of the customer.
