SAP EWM Implementation in Ongoing Operation: SCHÜTZ Relies on Logistics IT Know-how from inconso AG
SCHÜTZ GmbH & Co. KGaA, a leading international manufacturer of transport packaging solutions, is expanding its logistics network at several locations. At its headquarters in Selters as well as Montlingen, Switzerland, the manufacturer of intermediate bulk containers (IBC) has comprehensively modernized its existing logistics. The new logistics center in Selters (Westerwald) was completed in 2017. SCHÜTZ's Montlingen site in Switzerland followed at the beginning of this year. At both locations, SCHÜTZ relies on efficient logistics processes and its long-standing collaboration with the software specialist inconso.

The most recent project targeted the integration of the warehouse management system SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management), which included the go-live of the new logistics center at the Montlingen site in the canton of St. Gallen. It was equipped with an automatic high bay warehouse with double-deep storage and automatic shipping lanes, which are also directly connected to the production line. In regard to IT, SCHÜTZ implemented an efficient and future-proof logistics solution based on SAP that ensures high stock and process transparency. With support from the logistics software specialist inconso, modern dialogs for intuitive user operation based on SAPUI5 were also implemented in goods receiving, shipping and production.

The SAP logistics experts of inconso AG achieved the goal of ensuring full operational capacity in Montlingen starting on the first day. “The first day after the go-live was actually the day with the most truck shipments this week, and all of them could be loaded on time,” emphasized Roland Kalberer, Director of FIBU/CO & Projects Montlingen. Production supply and disposal took place in parallel with the go-live without any disruptions. “We are very satisfied with the software solution and timely implementation by inconso,” adds Kalberer.
