Future-oriented logistics solution in the growth sector of home shopping.
With a total investment of over 35 million euros, DHL has set up the dispatch warehouse for the home shopping station HSE24 with 250 workstations at its site in Greven.
The highly automated logistics centre was developed by SSI SCHAEFER Giebelstadt as a general contractor for Deutsche Post AG.
In a four-aisle high bay racking system, up to 25,000 different articles are stored from LCD televisions or massage brushes through to clothing. The customer orders are sent via a dedicated line to the dispatch warehouse with over 21,000 m2 order picking area on three levels.
Here between 20 and 40 thousand packages are dispatched each day, primarily one item orders; they are order picked, and transferred to the DHL packages centre after passing through dynamic scales and volume checks. The logistics concept realised has set a new milestone for speed, flexibility and quality of logistical processes in mail order.
