Unilever expands logistic center with BSS

The existing Unilever logistic center in Buxtehude is extended until the end of 2013. BSS was awarded to implement the intended changes in to reality.

Already in the spring of 2007, Unilever decided to award the planning and implementation of the central warehouse for raw materials and finished goods in Buxtehude to the BSS Materialflussgruppe. The heart of the storage system is the 18 m high and 100 m long pallet high bay warehouse. With approximately 10 000 pallet locations it provides space for the storage of 3000 various raw and 500 packaging materials for the production of personal care products as well as finished goods.

After previous extensions BSS has now been commissioned to provide the complete logistics facility for the new central palletizing and the automatic supply of the production lines.

Although the existing pallet conveyor system and the material flow computer are extensively extended and BSS delivers a driverless transport system with 10 vehicles for the automatic supply and disposal of the entire production.

The use of the new logistic facility is planned for the end of 2013.
