A company that expands its product range in the electronics sector often faces complex challenges. Cost efficiency and speed count more than ever, and choosing the right logistics strategy often crowns the success. Electrical wholesaler Fega & Schmitt has been using Kardex Remstar dynamic storage systems in its central warehouse in Heilsbronn for the past year. Items order once a month are stored in two Shuttle XP Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs) 30 meters high, saving space and enabling fast access to an extensive range of products.
With its wide range of electrical products for the installation sector – consisting of 40,000 items in stock and available within 24 hours – as well as cable and testing equipment for light installation or data and network technology, Fega & Schmitt, based in Ansbach, also sees itself as a partner to the transformation of the energy system. From its central warehouse near Nuremberg, the wholesaler can deliver goods to electricians, solar power specialists and building sites in its core region, which stretches from central to southern Germany, within 24 hours. One of its special services involves the production of individual wire gauges for all cable types and lengths together with the required insulation.
“People who compare small items in the electrical wholesale business often go for the lower-priced product,” explains Bernd Eberlein, head of logistics at Fega & Schmitt in Heilsbronn. The logistics specialist has been responsible for planning, picking, shipping and distribution at one of Germany’s leading electrical wholesalers for more than ten years now.
“There were plans to expand our range of small parts in 2014, but we had limited space available. Accordingly, we had to come up with something and the only way was up,” says Eberlein. Two 30 meter high Shuttle XP 500 VLMs from Kardex Remstar have been supporting intralogistics processes in Heilsbronn. The idea was to use a space saving storage concept to expand the product range within the limited space available. Up to 3,000 different items can be stored in each VLM. The company is already looking to the future with its expansion: There are plans for another six VLMs.
More than 16,000 order lines are processed in Heilsbronn every day. The journey around the central warehouse begins when the customer’s order is received. The order is scanned and forwarded via modern conveyor technology to the various storage areas, where the orders are then picked.
Picking carts are used to link the Shuttle XP with the other sections of the central warehouse. With very little effort, operators are in a position to prepare batch orders for shipping. Frive orders make up a batch and they can be processed simultaneously at one packing station. 500 orders are processed out of both Shuttle XPs daily.
Power Pick Global inventory management software is linked to the ERP systems and prioritizes the order sequence. With the software-assisted logistics strategy, it is now possible to classify the items precisely from A to Z and slot items accordingly. “Employee’s actions at the Shuttle XP can be traced within the software, providing the kind of access protection that isn’t available with open static shelving. In addition, the small parts are better protected from dust and dirt when stored in the Shuttle XPs,” says Eberlein.
Increasing worker productivity by eliminating the need to walk long distances to pick orders has improved order cut off times. Orders can be placed until 7pm and still be available for next day delivery within the core region. Since the dynamic storage systems from Kardex Remstar have been implemented, it has already been possible to add another 3,000 items to the product range. There are plans to expand the product portfolio up to 6,000 items. The addition of six more Shuttle XP VLMs over the coming years will gradually enhance the successful logistics strategy in this area of the Fega & Schmitt facility.

Hannibal Industries, Inc. released a video covering the implementation of its Pushback Rack System in M.G. Produce’s warehouse located in Vernon, Calif. Baltin Rack, a distributor of Hannibal Industries’ products, worked closely alongside Andrew Kirby, the inventor of Hannibal’s patented TubeRack, to provide a unique solution to M.G. Produce’s warehousing needs. To view the video, go to: youtu.be/DdwIP5EY0dk.
“Our new video on this case study serves to clearly explain and demonstrate the competitive benefits Hannibal Industries’ Pushback Rack System brings to a warehouse,” said Steve Rogers, executive vice president at Hannibal Industries. “We are proud of the results we were able to deliver for M.G. Produce working alongside our partners at Baltin Rack, and we look forward to working more with them on design projects in the future.”
M.G. Produce of Vernon, Calif. has grown to become the largest domestic and international supplier of Asian fruits and vegetables for North America. To keep up with its rapid growth, the company moved into a 70,000-square-foot, custom-built state-of-the-art warehouse designed by Baltin Rack.
“Pushback Rack is very easy to use, and it has saved us a great deal of space,” comments Sueng-min Yoon, founder of M.G. Produce. “It increased our warehouse space by 30 percent while reducing our labor costs by 20 percent – and that is quite an accomplishment!”
The core element of the warehouse design is Hannibal’s unique Pushback Systems that are manufactured using heavy-duty structural tube support rails along with encapsulated flanged wheeled carts. The benefits to M.G. Produce include:
• The tubular rails offer an economic strength to weight ratio, up to 3,000 pounds capacity.
• Produced in Hannibal’s nearby Los Angeles factory, the structural steel construction ensures long life in tough warehouse environments.
• The unique 2-6 deep design provides trouble-free operation and extensive built-in safety features.
• The flanged wheel design with tube rails prevents debris from being caught in the system, ensuring continuous smooth rolling action and cleaner environment – ideal for fruits and vegetable storage.
• Pushback Systems have a lower profile than other cart type systems, allowing extra life clearance and the possibility of an extra level of storage. They also feature a high-quality powder coat finish.

Millwood, Inc. debuted its Liberty Technologies branded Series 800 stretch wrap system in booth 1735 at the recent MODEX event in Atlanta April 4 – 7.
This conveyorized, fully-automatic, high speed rotary arm stretch wrap system is equipped with dual film carriages that allow for optimal pre-stretch levels of up to 300 percent and wraps more than 100 loads per hour.
It comes equipped with two state of the art technologies: FAST (Force Anticipation Stretch Technology) and Film Consumption Analysis.
FAST is an innovative film feed system that precisely delivers stretch film to the load based on actual load dimensions. This advanced technology prevents film breakage due to stretch film defects and product load puncture hazards and provides a wide range of force to load applications on heavy or light loads, preventing product defamation.
Film Consumption Analysis is a stretch film monitoring system that provides an accurate reading of the film applied to the load. It indicates the stretch film utilized on the existing roll, provides a history of film consumption and pre stretch levels on the last 30 pallet loads and manages the total film used and load containment.
This system comes with a true “No Thread” film carriage and cut and wipe down system, providing for a total automatic system.
It’s designed to wrap A, B and C loads of all sizes, weights and heights and will keep up with the most demanding production rates.
“The FAST (Force Anticipation Stretch Technology), Film Consumption Analysis, process rates and warranties are what set this system aside from the rest,” said Rich Evick, Millwood, Inc. Director – Engineered Systems. “Show attendees do not want to miss the opportunity to see and learn more about this system. There’s not one like it at the show,” Evick added.
This system is available on LibertyDirect.com, our ecommerce website with easy ordering for all types of packaging products and material handling systems.

Millwood, Inc. unvieled new features and products that have been added to its ecommerce site, Liberty Direct, recently at MODEX in Atlanta.
Liberty Direct, which allows customers to quickly and easily order packaging and material handling products, supplies and thousands of machine parts – all with the click of a button – was on full display in booth 1735.
“We recognize that our customers are busy. They are continually looking for convenient ways to quickly order products and parts,” said Millwood, Inc. Director – Corporate Marketing John Moore. “Liberty Direct fills this niche by allowing our customers to view instruction manuals and parts list for the packaging or materials handling products they have. Once they specify the correct part or product, they can then order directly online.”
We’ve added three new features that will allow for an easier and more positive experience for our customers.
Customers have been able to order using purchase orders or by providing a credit card over the phone, but now they can pay with a credit card without having to call and speak to one of our inside representatives.
Shipping rates can, now, also be calculated for pallet orders during the checkout process, which will give our customers a more accurate total prior to submitting their order.
The most exciting feature we are proud to announce is the live chat plugin that has been installed. This will allow customers to speak with our chat support team Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST to answer any questions or concerns regarding usability, order status, product information and more.
“Again, we are trying to make the system as easy to use as possible. By adding online credit card transactions and automatic shipping rates for pallets, we are maintaining this objective,” Moore said.
A growing demand for small pallet and other packaging material orders has led to the addition of pallets, stretch film, and various other products to Liberty Direct. Customers can now shop for these items from anywhere at any time at their convenience.
Several new hand films were added in an effort to meet the needs of all our customers. The films range in gauge and length and are used by several customers for different applications.
All of this and more will be expanded upon by one of our team members at certain times during MODEX April 4-7 in booth 1735 through several interactive mediums.

Westfalia Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of logistics solutions for manufacturers and distributors since 1992, announces the opening of The Glenmore Distillery’s new distribution center, which features the company’s warehouse automation technology. With Westfalia’s automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) and Savanna.NET® warehouse execution system (WES), the 223,000 square-foot distribution center is more efficiently storing, retrieving and managing pallets of finished goods.
Occupying 136,836 square feet inside the Owensboro, Kentucky, distribution center, Westfalia’s high-bay AS/RS contains four tandem storage and retrieval machines (S/RMs) which operate in four aisles. Storing pallets seven levels high, the two outside blocks hold between one and eight pallets deep, while the middle blocks hold up to 10. Each crane can induct/output 90 pallets of finished goods per hour, with a total of 360 pallets moving within the system. The AS/RS contains 52 pallet staging lanes, holding up to 416 pallets. The system also includes an automated layer pick system from Cimcorp, capable of moving 150 layers per hour and storing 255 SKUs. Westfalia’s Savanna.NET® WES powers the AS/RS and layer picking system, providing optimal control of material flow, order picking and inventory management.
“We’re pleased our business has grown enough to support such a highly advanced distribution center,” said Chris Stout, plant general manager, The Glenmore Distillery. “We look forward to being able to serve our customers in a more efficient manner and being prepared for potential future growth.”
A $45 million investment, construction of The Glenmore Distillery’s distribution center is part of parent company Sazerac’s $71 million investment in the state of Kentucky at its three distilleries. Westfalia’s AS/RS is also featured in a new Buffalo Trace Distillery facility, which opened in July 2015.
Dan Labell, president, Westfalia Technologies, said, “With a growing, diverse number of SKUs, seasonal products and complex orders, beverage alcohol distributors can most effectively manage inventory and material flow with automation technology. Westfalia’s AS/RS, integrated with our Savanna.NET® WES, will help The Glenmore Distillery achieve these benefits, while providing additional operational efficiencies, cost savings and a competitive advantage.”
About The Glenmore Distillery
The Glenmore Distillery has been a fixture in the Owensboro Community since the late 1800s. Originally called the Monarch Distillery, James Thompson re-named it The Glenmore Distillery after the Glenmore Castle near his birthplace in County Derry, Northern Ireland. During Prohibition, The Glenmore Distillery was fortunate enough to be one of four distilleries in the country allowed to operate on a limited scale for medicinal necessity.
Surviving tragedies such as flood and fire, the distillery went on to fill its two millionth barrel of whiskey in 1946. In 1973 it was producing 540 barrels a day. Although distilling operations ceased in 1973, bottling and warehousing continued at The Glenmore Distillery.

This new version contains cost saving features and advanced algorithms that improve order picking as well as pallet and roll container building.
Dematic iQ has always helped solve the labor, transportation and productivity challenges that the grocery industry faces every day. Today, Dematic is making it faster, simpler and less expensive for grocery retailers to get product onto store shelves.

Automation Plus, a Division of CSF Incorporated would like to announce an additional product to the Pallet Return Device (PRD) product line. Not only can the PRD be used in DC pick modules, now it can be used anywhere that empty pallets are stacked, saving the need for intense manual labor or expensive machinery.
The stand-alone PRD works well in:?
--General warehousing facilities
--Food and beverage plants?
If empty pallets are stacked in a facility, the PRD should be there to manually assist!
The PRD incorporates a unique method for stacking empty pallets. The PRD enables a new method, wherein the operator lifts the pallet over a pivot point thereby creating a mechanical advantage to remove the back strain associated with lifting pallets.
The PRD uses a “carriage” to help guide the empty pallets. This feature produces a perfect stack every time, thereby eliminating the need for the fork truck driver to reshape a stack of empty pallets. Additionally, pallets stacked neatly one atop the other removes the hazard associated with falling pallets. A falling pallet or dropped stack is rare, but when they do fall (particularly from high locations) it can be a serious situation.
A single pallet can weight anywhere from 30-70 pounds. The PRD incorporates a shock absorbing device that provides a smooth transition from the load position to the unload position. In use, the operator loads the carriage. When the carriage is full, the operator simply releases the load, and lets the shock absorbing device safely guide the stack to an unload position. Once positioned, the pallets are rolled forward to a raised outbound location which releases the pallets from the carriage. The operator then slides the carriage back, tilts it to the load position, and it’s ready to receive more empty pallets
