Intralogistics for fresh goods of the highest quality

The proper and careful handling, storage and distribution of products is crucial for quality, freshness and safety in the food and beverage industry: even a minor error in the production, handling of raw materials, packaging or finished goods can have significant consequences for consumers. The demands placed on manufacturers by international regulatory authorities are correspondingly high.

Simultaneously, the food and beverage landscape is evolving with eCommerce-like dynamics. Markets constantly seek new products, driving faster product life cycles. Distribution channels now accommodate more frequent, smaller orders, and face unpredictable seasonal shifts. Thus, ensuring the availability of top-quality fresh goods under favorable conditions is crucial for meeting consumer demands.

The solution lies in automation!

To effectively meet the rigorous standards set by regulatory bodies like the FDA and KOSHA, and to satisfy increasingly demanding consumers in a competitive market, you're likely already in the process of automating material and goods handling, along with the necessary track and trace documentation.

With Stoecklin, you have a trusted partner offering proven expertise in fully automated intralogistics solutions. We can help elevate your internal storage and conveyance processes to a new standard. Our team of industry specialists will tailor a system precisely to your needs, incorporating modules manufactured to INOX quality standards, particularly suitable for temperature-controlled hygiene, wet, and deep-freeze environments.

Automation is the key to efficiency in intralogistics. It increases precision, speeds up processes and optimizes the use of resources to create forward-looking, competitive logistics.

Modular system solutions

With our modular (high) racking systems, smart operating devices, conveyor systems and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) for your automated pallet warehouse, you get high-throughput, low-consumption and sustainable systems that you can easily adapt and expand in the future.

Shop-friendly picking

Innovative solutions like the Stöcklin CasePicker Solution enable fully automated pallet picking tailored to store requirements, ensuring optimal packing density on loading equipment. This includes cross-docking, directly transferring pallets without buffering or interim storage, enhancing order processing speed and reducing delivery times. The CasePicker prioritizes fast-moving items, efficiently handling sensitive food items even in damp packaging alongside heavier drink containers. It facilitates the creation of intelligently assembled, securely packaged, and store-friendly mixed pallets while minimizing labor requirements and physical exertion.

Furthermore, for end customer orders, we offer a comprehensive range of tried-and-tested forklifts, picking and pallet trucks, along with pick-by-light/voice technologies suitable for various operational environments. These solutions ensure seamless, error-free omni-channel fulfillment for the food and beverage industry.

Full transparency - perfect flow of goods

Complete visibility and seamless goods flow are ensured through the intelligent logOS software suite developed by Stöcklin. This sophisticated system integrates warehouse management, material flow control, and data management, providing comprehensive monitoring and control over your system, inventory, product movements, and storage locations. With logOS software, you can efficiently track shelf lives in a fully auditable manner, automate replenishments, and implement optimized first-in-first-out protocols for each storage area.

By leveraging this software, you can streamline throughput times, optimize inventory levels, and reduce storage costs while maintaining full compliance with FDA/OSHA regulations. The system offers complete transparency of operational data, including batch or serial numbers, ensuring regulatory compliance and operational efficiency at all times.

20% less electricity costs thanks to Green Logistics

In all aspects, we prioritize green logistics, employing intelligent energy management strategies and solutions that can lower electricity usage in your warehouse by as much as 20%. Our initiatives range from utilizing patented lithium-ion batteries and implementing fast-charging techniques to adopting low-wear, low-consumption approaches. We also focus on energy recovery, including the capture of braking energy, and implement intelligent route planning, which includes double-change calculations for our MASTer and BOXer storage and retrieval machines.
