Beurer Logistics Centre celebrates anniversary
The Beurer Logistics Centre in Uttenweiler has been an integral part of Beurer GmbH for five years, and will celebrate its anniversary on 19 April 2017. Since its opening in 2012, the storage area has been expanded by 5,850 m² and today covers a total area of 16,380 m², comprising 21,000 pallet storage spaces. Over the last five years, the number of overseas containers unloaded each day has doubled.
Today, 80 employees and five trainees handle the logistical challenges. Each day, approximately 33,000 products in around 600 packages and on 250 pallets are dispatched across Europe, while six 40' containers arrive at the Goods Receipt department each day – twice as many as was possible five years ago.
Over the last five years, replacement parts shipping and a portion of the customer service goods have been relocated from the headquarters in Ulm to the Logistics Centre in Uttenweiler, 50 km away. This enables Beurer to continue adhering to the high quality standards with regards to replacement parts and customer service goods in the future. A further development is the expansion of the photovoltaic complex and with it, an investment in renewable energy as a way of boosting our eco-friendly credentials.
