Customer means the best possible inventory management according to the customer’s requirements. In this specific case, it applies to the needs of Mercedes-Benz. This also includes an array of technologies that feature a high degree of modular automation and digitalisation, such as a driverless transport system, automatic pallet preparation, smart conveyor technology and a put-to-light system to avoid incorrect packaging. Climate, meanwhile, refers to the fact that there is a sophisticated sustainability strategy behind the logistics centre, at the heart of which is Germany’s largest uninterrupted rooftop photovoltaic system that extends over the entire logistics centre roof and generates 8.4 million kilowatt hours of solar power annually. This could supply 2,400 households with energy over this period. A holistic heating, hot water and ventilation concept, as well as comprehensive thermal insulation and smart lighting control, complement this environmentally friendly system. Behind the third C – Comfort – is the goal of creating the most pleasant working environment possible for the employees. This is achieved, for example, with an orchard containing native trees and a park with a pond designed as a dune landscape. Generous window elements and roof light strips, as well as moss walls and elements within the interior, also ensure a real feel-good climate.
*Info: The term Completely Knocked Down comes from the automobile industry. It refers to a method of manufacturing motor vehicles in which the components are delivered individually and assembled into a finished vehicle.
