New 6-aisle high-bay warehouse with link-up to production, picking and shipment at Milchwerke Berchtesgadener Land


The Milchwerke Berchtesgadener Land Chiemgau eG is wholly owned by 1.800 regional organic and mountain farmers. Day and night 320 employees are creating dairy products from the fresh milk delivered by the cooperative dairy farmers.

High product quality of dairy and fresh service as well as a consequent philosophy of origin allow for an average annual turnover of 189 Mill Euro generated not only by traditional food trade and wholefood shops but not least by hotel and hospitality, too. In order to cope with permanently growing production quantities Milchwerke Berchtesgadener Land realizes now the third fully automatic high-bay warehouse with direct connection to the production and to the other two warehouses. Hörmann Logistik is pleased to be awarded for realization of the new warehouse including rack steel constructions, roof and wall sheeting, S/R-machines, sprinkler system, conveyor system, fire doors, high-speed doors, coilers and labellers including visualized control and warehouse management.

The new 6-aisle high-bay warehouse is subdivided in two temperature zones (4°C und 15°C). The new picking and shipment area is also directly connected to the new warehouse. The production puts the goods on Euro pallets reading in their bar bodes. The pallet conveyor forwards the goods to the monorail conveyor being upgraded at some critical points of the existing plant and fully new installed at the new warehouse. Adjacent to the new warehouse Milchwerke Berchtesgadener Land realizes a new functional building connecting four levels with vertical conveyors and overhead monorail conveyros. The new highbay warehouse is equipped with 6 highly dynamic storage and retrieval machines for storage of dairy products in the relevant temperature zones. The S/R-machines feature the HiLIS_Eco-power management system with intelligent energy balancing reducing the power consumption by at least 25%.

The required retrieval performance of 250 pallets per hour is a particular challenge of this project necessitating intelligent control mechanisms having proved their effectiveness in material flow simulations. The monorail overhead conveyor retrieves goods from all warehouse areas and makes them available at the shipping lanes in the required sequence.

Milchwerke Berchtesgadener Land commenced construction of the new warehouse in July 2012 with commissioning of the new high-bay warehouse being scheduled for end of 2013.
