Expansion of the logistics centre

THE
GOAL:
MORE POWER

Musikhaus Thomann, a family-owned company, expanded its existing logistics centre at corporate headquarters in Treppendorf, Germany in 2018. For an investment of 27 million euros, the number of shipments was increased by up to 50 percent and the order processing time was reduced to 28 minutes. This enables the Musikhaus to supply its 12 million customers around the world optimally and in the shortest possible time.

"WE WERE BRUSHING UP AGAINST OUR LIMITS WITH THE OLD SYSTEM. THE OBJECTIVE WAS TO BOOST OUTPUT BY 50%."
