Volkswagen, located in Puebla, Mèxico, has over 15,000 employees working in a three-shift operation to produce approximately 1,500 cars per day, including the Jetta, New Beetle, Golf Cabrio and Beetle/Sedan. The production expansion of over 60% from 1991 to 2001 due to new models and versions required the development of new, efficient logistics concepts. Out of the eight providers, SSI SCHAEFER was awarded the contract.

SCHAEFER’s sophisticated design along with its trusted technology which provides an excellent price/performance ratio won over the decision-makers at Volkswagen. The innovative logistics center optimizes the processes throughout the warehouse which include space and labor savings as well as eliminating duplicative functions and unnecessary industrial trucks and HGVs.
