The Stuttgart specialists in turnkey intralogistics systems and software implemented an automated mini-load system and a pallet warehouse. GROB derived immediate and clearly noticeable benefit from this solution: The supply of the assembly area has significantly improved, and the processes have become simpler, faster and more transparent.
