27. 四月 2016 SSI Schaefer named ‘Best logistics brand’ in the ‘Containersʼ category At an awards ceremony held on 20 April 2016, SSI Schaefer was declared the ‘Best logistics brand’ in the ‘Containersʼ category.

For the first time, German logistics magazine LOGISTIK HEUTE has joined forces with Bundesvereinigung Logistik (BVL), a German logistics association, to identify the top logistics brands according to readers and experts. From November 2015, LOGISTIK HEUTE readers, BVL members and other interested parties were invited to cast their votes. The goal was to discover which company is rated ‘best logistics brand’ by supply chain managers, heads of logistics and other industry experts. A total of 170 brands were evaluated in eleven categories.

As Klaus Tersteegen, Managing Director at SSI Schaefer in Neunkirchen, Germany, comments, “It is an honour to be named the top logistics brand in the ‘Containers’ category. Boxes and containers have always been integral to our success as a company. They form the basis of our portfolio of intralogistics products and solutions, and our underlying modular design strategy. We are pleased that our customers continue to rely on our container systems, and on the SSI Schaefer brand.”

SSI Schaefer is firmly established in the containers segment. In 1937, Fritz Schäfer founded a company of the same name, specialising in the mass manufacture of sheet metal products. It began by producing transport containers. In 1950, the company achieved a breakthrough with the launch of stackable containers for milk bottles. A further milestone was reached three years later, on the development of the Lager-Fix container – a stackable container with an access opening at the front. Containers were at the heart of the first intralogistics systems designed by SSI Schaefer. Shelf sizes were aligned with the dimensions of the containers, and the company’s modular design strategy emerged. SSI Schaefer has continued to expand its range of products, and now manufactures manual, semi-automated and fully automated systems, plus corresponding software. Having started as a one-man operation, SSI Schaefer is now the leading global supplier of warehousing and logistics systems.

On 20 April – the day before the BVL’s nationwide ‘Supply Chain Day’ – SSI Schaefer received its award at a ceremony at the Berlin offices of Bertelsmann, the German broadcaster and publisher. A further ‘best logistics brand’ vote with eleven new categories will be held in 2017.
