Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/22/2016 -- The international pharmaceutical and medical supplies company B. Braun recently acquired an automated logistics center from a third party supplier and is relying on viastore to modernize the facility. The aim is to adapt the new logistics system to B. Braun's processes and safety requirements. Key to this will be a new warehouse management system (WMS) software, a new control system and improved workstation ergonomics.
B. Braun is investing in the expansion of its production capacities and in the automation of processes. B. Braun expects the new logistics center to bring about further efficiency increases and cost savings.
The logistics center, which is designed for the storage and order picking of complete pallets as well as of cartons and individual items, already features a high degree of automation. The unit-load pallet warehouse, connected with a two-story conveyor system, the carton sorter, the shuttle systems and the storage lifts are now all controlled using the viadat warehouse management system software which is directly connected to the ERP.
