WITRON’s logistics podcast

WITRON’s logistics podcast is published once a month and always focuses on different logistics aspects. We report on customer projects, on our strategy, but also on developments in the industry. Sometimes, texts, interviews, or infographics also emerge from the podcast. We share knowledge.

If you want to be part of our podcast, please feel free to contact us. We are always on the watch for interesting topics from retail, industry, or logistics. Our episodes are available at all known podcast catchers like Apple, Spotify, or Google, or on our website.

The lack of skilled workers is affecting fresh produce warehouses all over the world. “Many of our customers can no longer find pickers”, explains Daniel Kick from WITRON. He works at WITRON’s Logistikhof and has been designing innovative and highly dynamic logistics centers for customers in Europe, North America, and Australia for more than 15 years in the team around company founder Walter Winkler. Hear more about the future of fresh produce logistics in the podcast.

News from the ideas room

In WITRON’s ideas room, you will find many different topics around logistics. For us, the ideas room is a knowledge platform. It was launched in 2019. There, our guests discuss about technology, processes, digitalization, and management topics with the editorial staff or WITRON managers. Scientists as well as many international customers of WITRON talk about their experiences. Migros, Asko, or Spar report on their logistics strategies.

In addition, suppliers are also always part of the round table discussions. The posts are enriched with podcasts, infographics, videos, and surveys. The ideas room is thus a multimedia platform for retail logistics that does not yet exist in this form. If you would like to be part of the ideas room yourself, please contact our marketing department. We are always looking forward to exciting logistics topics. Important to us: The focus is not on products, but on strategies and technologies.

Almost twenty years ago, WITRON presented the first OPM solution. Now, the Parkstein-based company is continuing its success story: The fully automated Flow Picking Machinery (FPM) uses OPM technology but works without stock and builds store-friendly pallets just-in-time for customers. The system received the prestigious French “Rois de la Supply Chain” logistics award and was described as a paradigm shift in the supply chain of automated fresh produce logistics. FPM thus delivers significant customer benefits with regard to skilled labor shortage (ergonomic work processes), store service (high product quality), as well as sustainability (less surplus stock, less waste, optimum truck utilization, and CO2 reduction due to densely packed store pallets).

For many years, Thomas Kerkenhoff was responsible for logistics at EDEKA Rhein-Ruhr Stiftung, with its network including the two highly automated distribution centers in Hamm and Oberhausen - and he is a man of clear words: “In order to operate a facility successfully and economically in the long-term, you need a very good team, both at your logistics partner and on site that is constantly working on the enhancement of the mechanical components and the software. But this only works if you also have a partner who has already implemented a large number of systems in the industry worldwide, and thus has extensive experience, know-how, and references.” Kerkenhoff knows what and who he is talking about. He has been a WITRON customer for more than 15 years.
