AG Logistics Services has taken a new step forward in the innovation of services for Kraft Heinz in the supply chain field, thanks to the K.Handle Layer Picker. AG Logistics Services has chosen Körber to automate its new distribution center in Ede, in the Netherlands. The implementation of Körber’s innovative solutions will enable AG Logistics Services to optimize their customer’s experience and ensure its flexibility, while also supporting the strong growth of its production services.
Körber will therefore supply and implement a powerful combination of supply chain software, material handling systems and automation solution for the new distribution center. The Layer Picker, which is perhaps the most important and interesting tool developed by Korber, will allow AG Logistics Services to respond quickly and efficiently to the needs of its customers, such as Kraft Heinz. AG Logistics Services is thus able to store the products delivered directly in the picking areas, thereby reducing its order of complete pallets and facilitating the repackaging process thanks to the palletization of mixed pallets by gripping layers, and all at a lower cost.
AG Logistics Services’ new distribution center is scheduled to open in summer 2021. Most of the distribution center will be exclusively dedicated to Kraft Heinz supply chain services, whose products are shipped tailor-made from the site to all food retailers from the EU and the Netherlands.
