The Rhenus Group is constantly reviewing the current situation regarding the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 to ensure the continuity of the supply chains. A separate website has been created for customers with all the information collected on the status quo of business operations.
High, higher, Rhenus. The automated Schubmaster RAE 200 from Toyota Material Handling has been stacking countless goods onto shelves in Rhenus’ multi-user warehouse in Dortmund since autumn 2018. Standing at eleven metres tall, the fully autonomous forklift can store or retrieve up to 30 pallets per hour.
Since June 2018, several autonomous robot trolleys have taken over the majority of walking routes in the 50,000-square-metre warehouse in Swarzędz near Poznań, Poland. They support employees when it comes to picking orders for articles of clothing.
Rhenus is using a digital solution called ‘Motion Mining’ to anonymously record employees’ movements at selected European sites via simple sensors and Bluetooth technology. The Motion Mining algorithm detects movement patterns and provides information about how processes could potentially be redesigned.
