Central Geberit Logistics: the expanded logistics center in Pfullendorf starts operations

Geberit has significantly expanded the existing logistics center in Pfullendorf, South Germany and the extension building just began operations. In order to drive the centralization further forward, Geberit invested 40 million Euro in the capacity expansion. A concept for storing tubes with a length of up to 6 meters as well as new automated work areas and workplace types were also implemented. Miebach Consulting supported the project as general planner during the concept planning, implementation and go-live phases. Due to these site extensions the Geberit group is able to supply their customers in a highly efficient and reliable way. The flexible logistics system and in-depth logistics know-how allow for quick reactions to the ever-changing logistics challenges. Thus the logistics center is now consistent with the company's growth course. "Six years ago Miebach Consulting began supporting us during the planning and implementation phase of our central warehouse. They convinced us again with exceptionally good expertise, efficient interdisciplinary interface, and project management in the extension project. Thanks to the good collaboration of all parties the project was implemented successfully within time and budget limits", says Ralf Braun, Head of Logistics - Geberit Logistik GmbH. Hendrik Weiß, project manager on the part of Miebach Consulting, adds: "The success of the extension building depended on a high level of communication and coordination between the different trades and the logistics areas for pallets, containers and long goods. As general planner we functioned as central contact within the project and managed to minimize the project risk as well as to achieve an optimal overall solution". Focus on efficiencyRegarding the flows of goods, the logistics center is located in an ideal spot for supplying their customers in a most efficient way from both economic and ecological point of view. For this purpose, the goods are being pooled in the production plants and transported to Pfullendorf in trucks. There, automated and coordinated processes are responsible for consolidating the deliveries of goods and supplying the customers reliably on time. All processes were optimized and adjusted to the needs of customers, suppliers and Geberit plants as well as to internal workflows. Long goods newly sent from PfullendorfThe expansion of the logistics center also allows for dispatching all products of Geberit Mapress piping systems from Pfullendorf. A whole new concept for storing, commissioning and dispatching has been developed. The overall concept also includes an automated small parts warehouse, a new high-bay warehouse, a process surface area with fully automated workplaces and the extension of the dispatching area. Thus the logistics infrastructure is located on a total area of 60.000 square meters.
