Our customer

The Johann A. Meyer GmbH can look back on more than 100 years of company history and, with just under 70 employees, is an experienced and high-performance partner for hygiene, cleaning and care products, cleaning machines and catering items. The company is based in Wildau near Berlin and is a supplier to hospitals, administrations, large companies as well as craft businesses and cleaning service providers in and around Berlin and Saxony, but also throughout Germany.

Customer requirements

    • The company needs a warehouse solution to handle their broad product portfolio efficiently and in compliance with all safety regulations.
    • The turnover rate of the products varies greatly, which means that the storage and picking facilities must be designed accordingly.

The BITO Solution

    • Low level order picking

    » BITO implements a carton live storage system at floor level height from where the goods can be picked according to the First-in First-out (FIFO) principle.

    • Brake rollers

    » The flow channels are equipped with brake rollers which ensure a smooth and controlled movement of the products and avoids damages.

    • Pallet buffer levels on top

    » Pallet racking levels for palletized goods are located above the carton flow levels.

    • Shelving

    » BITO Boltless shelving rounds off the storage solution.

    • Push-back pallet racking

    » The storage solution also includes BITO push-back pallet racking.

On-site application

    • BITO Carton live storage levels are used for products that are picked in small quantities and have a high turnover rate.
    • Items with a small envelope are provided in BITO boltless shelving.
    • BITO pallet racks serve as storage area with the buffer stock for the carton live storage lanes.
    • For mass-produced items, such as toilet paper or disposable towels, the company uses pallet racking.

Customer benefits

    • The storage solution has been adapted to the product variety and the different turnover rates of the articles – the overall equipment includes a compilation of different BITO systems. Each reference line is easily accessible.
    • Supply buffers are provided in the immediate vicinity of the order picking levels, saving long travel times to replenish the feed-through channels.
    • The system enables efficient and ergonomic order picking.
    • Brake rollers in the flow channels ensure that even 5-litre canisters run safely and cleanly over the roller tracks without tipping over.
