Energy-Efficient Logistics

In our logistics centres, we mainly rely on automated logistics systems. In Gelsenkirchen, for example, this allows us to save around 75% of the space required by a purely manual warehouse.

We also use energy-efficient components and drives (active shutdown of conveyor technology when not in use; use of braking energy of the stacker cranes).

Thanks to savings in light and heat as well as process energy, we consume up to 1,500 t CO2 less per year in our automated warehouses than in a comparable manual warehouse.
