The health and beauty retailer dm markt GmbH offers its customers an extensive range of products ranging from beauty and health, baby and child products, household supplies to photo services and pet food as well as numerous seasonal offers.

For dm, the smooth and rapid management of goods plays a crucial role in business success. To ensure a perfect cooperation with its partners and suppliers, the health and beauty retailer decided to engage SSI SCHAEFER and take advantage of its state-of-the-art IT solutions as well as its broad range of services.

SSI SCHAEFER as general contractor

The modernisation project was realised by SSI SCHAEFER in two phases:

  • Phase 1 included the entire container conveyor technology including eleven order picking and four repacking stations, five automatic small parts store aisles as well as six "high-speed order pickers" as high performance order picking buffers.
  • Phase two focused on the complete pallet conveyor system including a fully automated five-aisle high bay warehouse for single and double-deep storage; at the same time the conveying system was linked to the existing electrical overhead conveyor.
