For many years, we have focused on complex solutions going beyond the mere handling of forwarding and/or warehousing and picking jobs. For Heinloth – the logistic experts, "Solutions" combines the interaction of forwarding and warehousing activities with downstream services, such as delivery to and setup at the point of sale but also inventory monitoring with automatic restocking pursuant to the parameters agreed.
Solutions – For us, this means offering you a complete, customized one-stop solution, comprising transhipment, storage, transport, conveying the goods to the point of use, setup and commissioning, as well as taking back and disposal of old products and packaging material.
To meet these tasks, we use special equipment such as vehicles with lifting platform or truck-mounted forklifts, manned by specifically trained staff, and specifically trained assembly personnel. For the tiles and natural stone industry, we use special transport frames to ensure a low rate of damage and maximum load security.
One of the services we are offering is the bundling of your imports from various European countries in our transhipment warehouse, followed by a consolidated delivery to the specialist shop.
Furthermore, we do the inventory management and monitoring for your production materials or the raw materials required in your production, and initiate restocking of these materials in compliance with the parameters specified by you.
As a lead logistics provider, we supplement and optimise your supply chain with highly efficient solutions and state-of-the-art warehouse and delivery concepts.
To optimise all aspects of your value chain, we offer not only the classical forwarding and warehousing business but also various product- and process-related activities and a series of value added services.
In the context of our value added services, in April 2019 we put our measuring machine into operation for rewinding and cutting cables based on customer specifications. The orders are transferred by the customer in real time to the warehouse management system (WMS) which reports back after the order has been completed.
The calibrated laser measuring system works with a (measuring) tolerance of only 0.04%, which corresponds to a maximum deviation of 4 mm at 10 meters. Drums up to a maximum diameter of 2.5 meters and a maximum weight of up to 8 tons can be processed here. The diameter of the cables to be processed there can vary from 0.4 cm to 8.0 cm. Strain relief can be activated for sensitive / thin material. The plant, one of the largest and most modern in Europe, is designed so that hoses or flexible pipes (empty pipes) can also be processed.
The focus of the design of this system was to reduce the necessary handling of the drum to a minimum and to subject the cable to minimal stress during the running process.
