Decoration and Logistics Centre
In 2002, the highly modern and highly automated Decoration and Logistics Centre (DLZ) was taken into operation in Selb for storing, decorating and despatching the entire goods of BHS tabletop AG. By integrating decoration, storage and distribution logistics, it was also possible to reduce stocks and to shorten delivery times. The automatic system for picking and placing items in 120,000 bays, the fully automatic transport pathways and the paperless handling system allows a service level of almost 100% to be met in deliveries to our customers of today. Up to ten million items can be decorated every year, and up to 40 million articles can be dispatched. About 250 employees work in two shifts to ensure that the some 800 pick-and-place operations that take place every hour run smoothly, and that about 65,000 deliveries per year to destinations all over the world reach the customers of Bauscher, Tafelstern and Schönwald just in time.
