KNAPP brings new technology to warehouse logistics.
Working with our customers all over the world,
The Open Shuttles by KNAPP find their way through the warehouse safely and quickly. The driverless transport vehicles are successfully operating at the Grene central warehouse in Denmark. In July 2012, Grene decided on a comprehensive expansion and a retrofit of the existing warehouse system to keep up with the growing market demands and to become equipped for multi-channel. Along with the heart of the solution, the goods-to-person picking system OSR Shuttle, the Open shuttles are now independently handling complex transport jobs.
ElGiganten, the leading retailer of Electronics in the Nordics, awarded KNAPP with a contract exceeding the value of 30 million Euro.
In December 2014, wood specialist Egger in St Johann, Tyrol began operating their automated high-bay racking system with picking. SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management including MFS) controls all the processes and material flow as WMS and WCS with direct connection to PLC.
In the past business year 2014/15, Styrian KNAPP AG increased turnover by 20 percent to 466.3 million euros and achieved a profit (EBIT) of 21 million euros. This extremely positive result is part of the long-term growth strategy.
