International automotive parts supplier HELLA has ordered an automatic mini-load warehouse from TGW Logistics for a new intralogistics centre in Shanghai – the first order to be placed in China since the opening of a TGW production unit in the country.
HELLA specialises in innovative lighting systems and electronic equipment for vehicles and has worked in the automotive and aftermarket industries for over 100 years. The new centre will help enhance the family-run global operator’s production capacities and production times significantly and will enable the business to accommodate future growth.
TGW will supply a six-aisle mini-load warehouse with around 120,000 storage locations, operated by six Mustang storage and retrieval machines. The lightweight construction design of TGW’s Mustangs, combined with the standard use of energy recovery modules and an energy consumption oriented axis control, makes the machines extremely energy-efficient compared to other providers.
