A logistics system for system toys. The geobra Brandstätter Stiftung & Co. KG, manufacturer of Playmobil® is expanding the existing Playmobil® logistics centre in Herrieden, Germany. TGW supports Playmobil® with their future plans and supplies a new intralogistics solution for the 7.5 cm play figures.
In this new building section for Playmobil®, picking and shipping of online orders as well as of retailer business orders will be handled. With an investment of almost 8 million Euros, a new TGW logistics system will be established with extensive KingDrive® conveyor equipment and a STINGRAY shuttle warehouse with three aisles and about 24,000 storage positions supplying the highly dynamic ergonomic picking stations. The existing halls will be interconnected to the new system by additional conveyor equipment. Furthermore, TGW will deliver controls and warehouse management system. The performance of the entire logistics system will be scalable and already considers a potential doubling of performance.
Georg Kirchmayr, President of TGW Logistics Group, is happy about the new collaboration: "With Playmobil®, TGW could acquire a well-known traditional brand that also has a strong potential for growth. We were able to convince Playmobil® with our future safe concept and are looking forward to a successful partnership.”
