Jungheinrich Automates Spare Parts Logistics for Liebherr
Together with Jungheinrich, Liebherr-Werke Ehingen is building a new central spare parts warehouse at its headquarters in Ehingen, Baden-Württemberg. Liebherr plans to take over worldwide spare parts sales on June 2023.
At the heart of the logistics solution, which Jungheinrich is delivering as single provider, is an automated six-aisle high-bay warehouse (HBW) for pallets in a rack-supported structure with 18,000 rack storage locations – including in the roof and wall panelling. It has a length of 80 meters, a width of 75 meters and a height of 30 meters. In addition, it has a two-aisle, threefolddeep automated miniload shuttle warehouse (MSW) with rack storage locations for a total of 40,000 bins.
These two storage types will provide the good utilization of space for Liebherr’s spare parts distribution and at the same time improve handling performance. With the commissioning of the warehouse, the company intends to set new standards in terms of quality, functionality and safety and to ensure the consistently high availability of its machines worldwide.
