With the new logistics facility the throughput times in the yarn store and raw material storage should be kept to a minimum. Thus the Getzner Textil AG wants to create a competitive advantage in a market where speed is a determining factor for success.
Storage system for yarn - In 2002 together with Getzner Textil AG the Gilgen Logistics realized a new logistics concept, which consists of a fully automatic high bay storage system with two stacker cranes, not aisles bound, and the specific soft-/hardware. With this new storage system the throughput time was limited on a minimum.
Storage system for raw material - In 2011 the Gilgen Logistics was assigned for the new building of a high bay storage system for raw material. The system consists of a high bay stacker crane, double mast aisle bound, the pallet rack, the conveying system for palettes with the incoming/outgoing stations, commissioning area, Warehouse Management System WMS and visualization and the annual maintenance.
