At its headquarters in Tumba, near Stockholm, Swedish Lorry Parts stores high-quality machinery parts. They are shipped from there to customers in Sweden and throughout the world. The company is committed to keeping 95 percent of all parts in stock and shipping them on the same day as the order is received. Such prompt delivery times require fast and accurate retrieval operations, which is why Swedish Lorry Parts has opted for Kardex Remstar’s Shuttle XP system.
Swedish Lorry Parts and Kardex Remstar have maintained a successful partnership for a number of years. The company equipped its workshop with a Shuttle XP unit back in 2009. As demand increased, Swedish Lorry Parts expanded the number of Shuttle XP units in its portfolio to the current level of ten – soon to be twelve. The system’s scalability makes it the ideal solution for growing demands.
The semi-automated storage solution has made it possible to cut retrieval times by 66 %. This consistently high level of precision is guaranteed by the use of "pick-to-light" assistants and Power Pick Global warehouse management software. Another advantage of the Kardex Remstar system is that it considerably reduces the amount of space required, thereby making more room for the growing inventory. At the same time, the integration of the incredibly flexible VLM BOX significantly increases the capacity of the units. In addition, employees benefit from a much improved working environment thanks to the ergonomic retrieval of parts.
Kardex Remstar develops, manufactures, and maintains dynamic storage and retrieval systems. The company is a leading provider of storage systems, order picking software, and life cycle services. Customers from all industries use solutions from Kardex Remstar to organize their intralogistic processes in a simpler and more transparent manner as well as to save space and cut process costs. Kardex Remstar customers come from a broad range of industries, such as automotive, electronics, chemical/pharmaceutical, retailing, mechanical engineering, or health care.
Kardex Remstar has two production sites in Germany (Bellheim and Neuburg). To date, the company has successfully installed around 140,000 dynamic storage systems across the globe. With an extensive sales and dealership network, Kardex Remstar is active in over 30 countries and employs around 1,200 people worldwide.
