Bohle – One of Europe's largest glass warehouses modernised by BSS

Bohle AG in Haan is a ISO9001 certified company in the areas glass art and glass processing products and operates one of the largest glass warehouses in Europe. BSS was employed as general contractor and system provider for control and computer equipment for the modernisation of the central warehouse with automated small parts storage and high bay storage served by reach trucks. The double-depth automated small parts storage contains approx. 13,400 container locations and 100 pick-by-light displays for fast-moving items. Oversized items are picked from cantilever shelves in the large item despatch area.

The WMS with multi-client capability also includes a multi-picking order picking station for parallel processing of 4 customer orders while taking into account all items in circulation. The special feature of the multi-picking station is that the PBL-controlled pickings at the back of the employee are integrated into its dialogues. A shipping volume of 300 orders with 1,500 items is achieved in 8 hours on 6 packing stations with an automatic strapping machine.
