Redesign of the Schweinfurt warehouse - Goods To Man

SKF has upgraded its logistics structures in the Schweinfurt warehouse.
The picking principle Goods to Man (G2M) was implemented. (2019)

Our SKF Warehouse in Schweinfurt has been through a 2 year long redesign and ramp up. We are combining existing technologies within the material flow, in new ways, applying a Goods to Man-approach (the opposite of Man to Goods, where the picker drives to the rack and picks out the goods). The warehouse holds16 fully automized forklifts operating in very narrow aisles doing outbound and inbound transportation. And13 wagons on a monorail, acting as binding element between pick/pack area and storing area. The warehouse also features real time visualization of the material flow, in about 18,700 storing locations spread over 18 aisles.

SKF has been a leading global technology provider since 1907, and our mission is to be the undisputed leader in the bearing business. We offer solutions around the rotating shaft, including bearings, seals, lubrication, condition monitoring and maintenance services. Today we are around 44,000 professionals working in 40 different industry segments in 130 countries. For more than 100 years we have helped shape the modern world as we know it today. We were there for the first moon landing, in the cameras used to take pictures from the surface. The bells in St Peters Square also ring because of us. Today, we are working closely with leading innovators. Wherever the world moves in factories, on the road or towards the future you will find us there. Read more on
