Special features at the site
The systemic booking of the delivered goods in the customer system or in the ELSEN Warehouse Management System is done with specially developed mobile scanning stations. These enable direct booking in at the goods by means of a scanner without the need for manual booking at a central workstation.
Zero stock indicator
To avoid zero stock levels in the warehouse, we operate a proactive early warning system at the Koblenz site as a communication tool between the customer and the goods receiving department. Here, data regarding delivery date and urgency are transmitted directly from the material planner to the operative goods receiving department in real time. This ensures that critical materials are booked in and forwarded for further use without any loss of time.
Time slots are reserved in our logistics center for deliveries of goods and recorded in an internal database. In this way, "peaks" can be avoided and truck idle times can be reduced. In order to provide the employees in the incoming goods department with an overall view, the application is additionally visualized via a display board.
Since August 2019, we have been using the tugger train principle to supply production to the nearby plant at our customer's site. With 78 tugger train trips per day, we handle an average of 1,300 orders. The train travels between our warehouse and production every 15 minutes and can pick up 8 pallets per trip.
The tugger train solution with a total length of approx. 20m is a special design that was developed for our customer in cooperation with the Jungheinrich company.
Quality testing and control
During quality inspections, components are checked for external defect characteristics and condition. Here, the inspection spectrum ranges from air-tightness tests (leakage tests) and visual inspections of larger supplier parts to microscopic inspections of very small parts for μ-size. In order to ensure consistent inspection quality with rotating personnel, detailed and illustrated inspection instructions are prepared, which we use to train employees accordingly for the inspection job.
Container management & disposition
Within the scope of container development, we develop and implement customer-specific container variants in cooperation with packaging suppliers.
In Koblenz, we manage a total of approximately 2,500 containers, consisting of 100 different container types. We monitor and schedule container inventory between our customer's production and a total of 17 customer production sites across Europe.
Value Added Services
In our logistics center, we offer our customers a wide variety of packing and testing services. At the Koblenz location, for example, we are able to carry out piece-precise packing.
An excerpt of our Lean standards
Our Info Cube serves as an information and communication tool at the Koblenz site: In addition to the most important key figures, information and quality topics, damage and complaints are also indicated here. The cube is also used twice a week during shift handovers to ensure a flow of information within the team.
At each ELSEN site, certificates, organizational charts, orders and assignments are collected and visualized on a "site board". Occupational health and safety laws can also be found here to ensure compliance with legal regulations and process reliability.
The FFZ boards at each location are also considered to be an ELSEN standard. These are used to display all industrial trucks and their status. In this way, the status of all FFZ can be seen at a glance, which is particularly helpful in a 3-shift operation.
