G. Umbreit GmbH

G. Umbreit distributes books, periodicals, and newspapers.

Industry: Wholesale Distribution

Location: Germany

Challenges:

Umbreit chose to further automate its central warehouse at the Bietigheim-Bissingen location and at the same time expand its portfolio in the business area of the intermediate book trade by offering additional logistics services. Challenges of this project included:

  • The need for additional automation solutions
  • The demand for more robust logistics services

Solutions Implemented:

G. Umbreit set up a sorter and a sorter controller, connecting the new components to the existing system. It implemented:

  • Feed sorter with six workstations
  • 60 terminals
  • Two NOK terminals
  • Conveyor system

Benefits:

The centerpiece of the intralogistics expansion is the individual distribution of book titles by a sorter that addresses the delivery requirements of the various stores and adjusts the distribution for each individual shelf. Additional benefits include:

  • Capacity increased to 6,000 books per hour at up to 3kg
  • Low system maintenance requirements
