A merger between Dutch food retailers PLUS Retail B.V. and COOP has created the third largest full-service food retailer in the Netherlands, spurring an expansion of the PLUS DC in Oss, NL. with Witron Integrated Logistics Order Picking Machinery.
Witron's newly developed Goods-To-Person solution (GTP) integrated into their OPM concept, makes it possible to pick and consolidate food items in an ergonomic, cost-efficient, and store-friendly manner directly onto pallets & roll containers.
One virus, twelve weeks of “peak season” in food retailing, seven days per week, three shifts per day, 20 percent more workload. While many industries had to “lock down”, food retailers and logistics service providers were faced with new challenges.
WITRON celebrates an anniversary in 2020. The company from Germany has been present on the North American market for 25 years. Karl Högen has accompanied WITRON as CEO North America on this journey for 13 years and looks back with us.
