31. 八月 2015 SSI Schaefer wins order for logistics centre in Saudi Arabia FLOW, Jeddah, one of the most dynamic third-party progressive logistics companies in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has commissioned SSI Schaefer to construct a new logistics centre.

The ultra-modern e-commerce fulfilment centre is being constructed 100 km north of Jeddah in the King Abdullah Economic City, the kingdom's new trading centre. FLOW will run the new fully automatic system as a contract logistics supplier for the IKEA furniture distribution business. The general contractor order for SSI Schaefer includes a five-aisle high bay warehouse (HBW) with a total of 39,000 pallet storage locations for industrial pallets and 2 m long large IKEA pallets. Another five-aisle automated small-parts warehouse (Miniload) provides capacity for the handling of 66,000 bins. In addition, SSI Schaefer is also to supply and install the bin and pallet conveying systems and lifts required for material flow purposes. The WAMAS® logistics software from SSI Schaefer will provide optimum process control, transparent stock management and efficient order fulfilment. “The collaboration with SSI Schaefer – one of the world's leading intralogistics specialists – has strategic significance for us and our customers”, is how Saud Al Sulaiman, Managing Director Flow, explained the background to the placing of the order. “Besides extending our own national sales network, the new distribution centre will play a key role in our strategy of becoming the market leader for contract logistics and e-commerce fulfilment in Saudi Arabia. We have therefore entrusted the project to a strong and reliable partner.” The new distribution centre is expected to start operations by the end of 2016.
