19.1 kilometres of shelving for new goods distribution centre
Automotive manufacturer Opel has opened its European distribution centre for spare parts logistics in the Langendreer district of Bochum. More than 11 million Opel drivers throughout Europe are now being supplied with spare parts from the warehouse, which is the equivalent of approximately 12 football pitches in size. The heart of the warehouse is a Jungheinrich racking system with a total length of over 19.1 kilometres. Multi-slot racks and multi-level compartmentalised racks for storing palletised goods and a wide range of small parts have been installed.

“Our 60 years of experience have taught us that racks are the most basic system component in the warehouse. Without them, there is no warehouse. As a result, we at Jungheinrich invest a great deal of time and energy in providing our customers with the right shelving systems. In Bochum we were able to draw on our many years of experience in the automotive industry to design a tailored shelving system for Opel. To this end, we worked together in partnership right from the very start to plan the storage facility," explains Ralph Matenia, the responsible project manager at Jungheinrich.

Jungheinrich is a leading supplier of shelving systems for warehouses of all kinds. Its portfolio includes pallet storage racks, containers, trays and cartons, through to long goods. As one of the world's largest materials handling equipment manufacturers, Jungheinrich is in possession of wide-ranging expertise on the requirements placed on stacker-operated racks. Jungheinrich leverages the experience it has gained from planning, overseeing and commissioning many thousands of warehouses worldwide to find the right storage solution for every customer. The specific customer benefit is always at the forefront.

The 200,000 square meter warehouse in Bochum/Langendreer is designed for operation with reach trucks, guaranteeing a high degree of flexibility and high availability. Jungheinrich ETM 216 reach trucks have a lifting height of 8,720 mm. By connecting them to Opel's warehouse management system (WMS), the vehicles are able to accurately position their forks automatically at the right height to approach all pallet slots. A special feature is the use of type EZS 350 order picking tractors, which enable Opel to pick the orders of individual customers on several levels in a single tour. By the final stage of expansion, Opel will be deploying some 60 industrial trucks in its warehouse.

Steve Richmond, Director - Logistics Systems, Jungheinrich UK, adds: “Projects of this kind showcase the breadth of working knowledge that Jungheinrich has to offer. Our industry experience coupled with a consultative approach to Opel’s specific needs is what makes this racking system successful. The addition of automated solutions connected to the WMS provides increased efficiency and the ability to optimise the trucks usage within the warehouse.”
