The warehouse Poing 1 has a total storage area of 27.500m² with 157.000 stock locations in the shelf area and another 12.000 locations in the pallets area.
The warehouse Poing² was built in 2011. The warehouse consists of a total area of 32.000m² (expanded by 7.500m²) with 289.000 storage locations in the shelf area and additional 45.000 locations in the Autostore.
The Autostore is a unique worldwide-patented warehouse system proven to be the ideal small-goods handler. With standardised boxes stacked in a cube, it is the most space-efficient goods-to-man system on the market. Besides that, there are 31.000 storage locations in the pallet area. The warehouse also features a sequencer, whose task is to collect all the individual items of orders and shipments, sort, store, save and perform together. The sequencer's performance is far above the current industry standard: twelve independent shuttles in three equally independent lanes allow 1200 called games per lane. Sufficient for each job density and a significant relief for picking.
