Projects from PureLoX
As one of the largest multi-channel booksellers and the best-known book retail brand in Germany with 83 percent (BrandIndex 10/2014), Weltbild offers customers a special shopping experience via online stores, direct marketing, its own stores and social networks. Online at weltbild.de, jokers.de and buecher.de, in social networks, in catalogs and in the approximately 135 stores, many millions of Weltbild customers can choose from over ten million articles In addition to book retailing, Weltbild is expanding its business in the non-media sector and is focusing in particular on innovative and self-developed products.
In Bor, Czech Republic, near the German border, the Weltbild Group built its newly designed logistics center and successfully put it into operation on schedule at the beginning of 2017.
The management commissioned PureLoX SOLUTIONS in sub-projects to provide support with important service modules from conceptual design to commissioning for all aspects of the warehouse management system. “The central project challenge was to redesign the process design for our logistics center in Bor in a new and efficient way and to get it up and running on time. This also included the parallel, professional training of the logistics staff on site,” says Fritz Weise, Project Manager – IT – Weltbild, explaining the project requirements for the logistics specialist. “In conclusion, we can say that we commissioned the right company in PureLoX,” he adds.
PureLoX SOLUTIONS’ holistic process expertise has proven its worth. From analysis and planning, conceptualization and design of the processes through to implementation, commissioning and the HyperCare phase – PureLoX ensured smooth processes and suitable solutions across all project phases.
“Taking into account the existing infrastructure and systems, e.g. the viadat warehouse software already in use, we optimized existing processes and integrated new processes. This included, for example, the introduction of paperless processes accompanied by tests, documentation and training, as well as topics such as intelligent consolidation,” explains Stefan Wirscheim, Logistics Consultant at PureLoX.
The Weltbild Group has set the course for its own strategic objectives with the logistics center in Bor, which was redesigned in collaboration with PureLoX SOLUTIONS: to ensure modern, competitive and reliable delivery of Weltbild products to its customers.
