Klingele Papierwerke is investing in the extension of its logistics centre in Werne
Klingele Group, one of the leading independent manufacturers of corrugated base paper and packaging, is planning to extend the logistics centre at its Werne site, Germany.
Construction can begin shortly following approval of the planning application; the inauguration is planned for the end of 2018. The new warehouse covers an area of 15,000 m2. Together with the existing storage areas, the logistics centre will provide space for approx. 20,000 pallets in the future. In addition, five new jobs will be created. The dynamic business development at Klingele and customers’ high demands with regard to fast and error-free deliveries made it necessary to invest in extended logistics capacities. The existing warehouse with an area of approx. 13,000 m2 was no longer adequate and will be used partly as a production area in the future. Klingele will present the extension of the logistics centre in detail to residents and interested parties on its open day, 23 June 2018.
The new finished goods warehouse will be equipped with RFID technology: this enables accurate warehouse management by bay location, offers excellent stock reliability in conjunction with warehouse management software and reduces the internal logistics error rate to almost zero. The advantage for Klingele: goods in the warehouse can be found quickly, incorrect shipments are avoided and lorries can be loaded in less than 30 minutes. This means that Klingele can supply its customers much faster and significantly increase its handling of goods in the warehouse. Klingele has successfully implemented the same logistics concept at its Delmenhorst site.
