First phase of Coop’s huge logistics centre completes

The first phase of the development of a huge logistics centre for Swiss food company Coop has been completed by TGW Logistics.

A general products warehouse, based on a 110,000 sq km site in Schafisheim, Switzerland, is now fully operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The development began in June 2013.

The new warehouse sees about 13,000 toller containers and 2,000 Euro pallets of flowers, plants, fruit, vegetables, dairy, confectionery, bakery and general products are picked and shipped each day.

“An important milestone has been reached and the acceptance of other phases of this huge development will follow, such as the Empty Packs Centre, Bakery, Cooling Machine and Freezer Logistics,” says Harald Stallinger, managing director at TGW Systems Integration. “The teamwork between our employees, the planners, suppliers and the entire Coop team has been excellent. We can all be proud of our achievement.”
