Alstom is a German manufacturer of railway technology and also offers maintenance, repair and modernization services for a wide range of rail vehicles. A long-standing and experienced partner – Deufol – is responsible for the management of your logistics centre.
Alstom is the only manufacturer of railway technology in Germany to offer maintenance, repair and modernisation of all types of rail vehicles and their components. This applies not only to the series of all manufacturers, but also to their transport information systems.
More than 90% of the high-speed trains running in Germany are equipped with ETCS (European Train Control System) from Alstom. Alstom employs around 3,000 people at its six German locations.
Deufol has been a partner of Alstom for many years and is entrusted with the management of the lottery centre. Here, Deufol processes all procedures, from the administration of the goods and inventory management to shipping.
For its location in Salzgitter, Alstom planned to build a complete new logistics centre, which would improve logistics processes in three halls covering 30,000 m2 and replace the old external warehouses. Alstom attached particular importance to the economic processing and optimal supply of the production halls on the factory premises.
SCHULTE Lagertechnik was able to impress its client with excellent service and a comprehensive offer, and was thus involved in the planning of the new Alstom logistics centre from the very beginning.
Numerous drawings, a fully elaborated concept and continuous support during the construction phase were just as much a part of the project as punctual delivery and professional installation of the system.
The tight time window until the planned handover of the new logistics centre posed a particular challenge. Thanks to its short coordination routes and production directly on site in Sundern, SCHULTE Lagertechnik was able to meet this requirement without any problems – despite the additional production of special racks with grating walls for the storage of long goods.
Within six weeks, the plant was assembled on site and thus completed on time.
