Future-proof thanks to expandability
Lehner has initially ordered five picking stations. "But there is always the possibility of adding seven more," says Lüthi of Swisslog, pointing out that the investment in the new technology is especially future-proof. "Lehner is benefiting from the ongoing boom in e-commerce and we are delighted to be able to support the Swiss mail order company's growth with our technology. Part of the far-sighted concept is to plan in buffers for future expansion." The capacity of the current system could also be expanded by adding more robots as needed. "Thanks to these optional extensions, we are very flexible," beams Michael Hirschi of Lehner. "If business fluctuates or we have to deal with peaks in demand, we are well prepared with our new dynamic logistics system."
