AMAG, Switzerland: Motor vehicle parts warehouse automation
AMAG Automobil- und Motoren AG is Switzerland’s leading car importer and dealer operating repair centers across the country for major brands including Volkswagen and Audi. To adapt quickly to customers’ increased demands and recognizing the need to have parts available within six hours of order placement, AMAG used Swisslog as general contractor to establish Switzerland’s largest automotive spare parts warehouse. Swisslog handled the planning of this warehouse logistics automation project which was implemented in several phases.
Storage capacity doubled
The highly efficient automated warehouse logistics system ensures AMAG benefits from:
- Fewer interfaces, using a single partner for planning, implementation and service
- Double the storage capacity
- Faster internal flow of goods
- Seamless transparency, control and delivery accuracy
"Together with Swisslog we created a distribution center that is perfectly equipped for future challenges. We can handle order throughput times of only one hour even with higher volumes."
