Optimising the Klöpferholz regional warehouse
Klöpferholz is Germany’s largest wood wholesaler and importer. With 26 locations and 550 staff, the historic, Garching-based company is able to supply over 30,000 products nationwide as a full-line provider.
alphalogs optimised operational processes at the largest facility in Wolnzach, Bavaria. The contract included drafting, tendering and introducing a warehouse management system with forklift control for all the facility’s product ranges. Despite seasonal peak period at the Wolnzach site, the new logistics processes started up in April 2011 without any problems. Thanks to careful project follow-ups by alphalogs, the Klöpferholz staff quickly familiarised themselves with everything. And just four weeks after start-up, Klöpferholz was able to record a higher productivity rate than ever before. Plans are in place to introduce this setup at all Klöpferholz facilities across Germany.
