Consafe Logistics upgrades Scania Parts Logistics High Bay warehouse in Sweden

Scania Parts Logistics Sdertlje, Sweden has chosen Consafe Logistics as main contractor for upgrade of their High Bay warehouse solution. The company is modernizing its warehouse to increase efficiency and enhance their product availability.

Scania Parts Logistics is responsible for distribution of spare parts within the Scania organization. Scania Parts Logistics network is one of the most advanced in the world. They offer high availability for all Scania Parts, which can be delivered to just about any point in the world within 24 hours at the most. Today the high bay warehouse in Sdertlje handles more than 30 500 pallet positions and about 25 000 part numbers.

It is the old existing High Bay system with 12 automatic cranes that will be upgraded with a modern SattStore WMS solution. The project also includes online picking at pick stations, radio data terminals and an interface with Scania ERP-system.

The existing AGV system will be replaced with radio data terminals and the conveyor system will be adapted to handling with manual forklift trucks instead of AGVs.

Consafe Logistics warehouse management solution, SattStore controls the High Bay cranes, format stations and the picking assignments at all pick stations. SattStore WMS will be integrated with Siemens PLCs and with Scania Host system (ERP) thru WebSphere business information message broker.

We choose Consafe Logistics for their experience and deep knowledge of system solutions.

With their standard product SattStore WMS we now have a flexible software platform for future modifications that we already know at hand, says Tommy Carling at Scania Global Purchasing.

All improvement are planned to be ready in the autumn of 2005.
