Innovative fashion logistics – BSS realizes a shuttle warehouse for Meyer & Meyer in Peine

Meyer & Meyer
Meyer & Meyer, the leading international provider of fashion logistics with a long family tradition, offers its customers full support along the entire value chain and sets new, future-oriented standards with a holistic “From Sheep to Shop” approach. This includes the consistent use of the latest intralogistics, adapted to constantly increasing customer requirements. Since autumn 2018, Meyer & Meyer has taken over the complete distribution logistics for the 183 stores and e-commerce customers of Adler Modemärkte AG in Germany and Austria.
The existing goods distribution center at Peine had to be expanded to include a powerful intralogistics system.

New, convincing concept

BSS Bohnenberg GmbH from Solingen won over with a shuttle warehouse concept and was commissioned in spring 2018 to implement the expansion planned by Meyer & Meyer.
The core element was a 3‐aisle shuttle‐system with a height of 12 meters, a length of 65 meters, and a capacity of 20,500 parking spaces. This highly dynamic and energy-efficient solution won over, through optimal use of space and land and a high throughput, guaranteed by 33 storage vehicles as well as 3 devices ‐ and 6 container lifters.

The fully automated warehouse for double-deep storage of cardboard boxes and folding boxes with flat-packed goods was connected to the conveyor technology also supplied by BSS on two levels. While the lower, long-established conveyor technology level takes over the incoming ‐ and outgoing goods flow, the conveyor technology installed at the stage level is connected to the picking ‐, packing ‐, and return areas.

BSS also supplied the entire automation technology, the visualization, and the material flow computer, tailored to customer requirements. The plant was built in three construction phases and gradually put into production.
