Kurtz Ersa Central Warehouse

888,888 movements!

The people in charge of the Kurtz Ersa Central Warehouse in Wiebelbach were delighted at the middle of the year: just over a year after the official commissioning of the new highly automated logistics system on 25 June 2018, head of logistics Matthias Hofmann was able to hand over an anniversary shipment with the 888,888th warehouse movement.

The addressee was a major Chinese customer, and Ersa General Sales Manager Rainer Krauss took over the symbolic handover. In Chinese culture, the number “8” is a special lucky number associated with prosperity. With China as the largest single market for Kurtz Ersa, the Group´s internal logistics also maintains intensive relations with China. From Wiebelbach, the Southeast Asian service and sales locations as well as the production plant in Zhuhai are supplied on a weekly basis, and numerous consignments for Chinese end customers leave the modern central warehouse every day.

“We are very satisfied with the performance of the entire plant,” says Matthias Hofmann, Managing Director of Kurtz Ersa Logistik. In addition to on-time delivery to customers, important goals, such as a very high adherence to delivery dates for deliveries to domestic production plants and a significant reduction in the picking error rate, were already achieved shortly after commissioning in the summer of 2018. Currently more than 3,000 delivery items leave the new location in Wiebelbach every day. The logistics team will probably process and document the millionth movement in the third quarter – let´s move!
