Goal:
Centralization

In 2018, the freezer specialist Nordfrost decided to invest in a centralized distribution center for the region of western Germany. As a central hub, the newly constructed building in Herne, North Rhine-Westphalia will take over the supply of customers from the entire region. The distribution center is designed for high picking capacity and quality. Several thousand packaging units per hour can be processed in the DC, to a large extent in an automated process.
