Innovative warehouse technology
In October 2012, the new Redcoon logistics centre in the central freight terminal of Erfurt’s industrial estate took up operation. Construction work on the new centre was completed in just ten months – because when it comes to Redcoon, everything has to be done fast! Redcoon Logistics GmbH offers 53,000 m² warehouse storage area over several levels. 48 lorry ports ensure goods can be delivered and loaded quickly. Up to 30,000 parcels can be dispatched per day. A fully automated small components warehouse, automatically controlled conveyor technology and pick-by-light order picking from so-called towers combine to make the shipping process as efficient as possible. Major investments have also been made in an ultra-modern IT infrastructure, a server and a productivity monitoring system.
Creating an optimum infrastructure for the mail order business was one of the most important criteria for choosing the central freight terminal location in Erfurt. Thanks to its central location in Germany and ultra-modern warehouse technology, Redcoon parcels now reach their customers even faster: anything in stock which is ordered by 6 p.m. is dispatched the same day!
