Berlin, 3 February 2021 – The battery manufacturer BMZ Group has commissioned PSI Logistics GmbH with the delivery of the Warehouse Management System PSIwms. In the future, this will optimize intralogistics processes in warehousing and production supply.

For the high-tech production of lithium-ion batteries, BMZ Group operates three production units and a central logistics center with 10,000 pallet spaces at its headquarters in Karlstein near Frankfurt/Main. The production supply and disposal is carried out with six tugger trains via inbound/outbound stations in the logistics center and the three production units.

After implementation, PSIwms takes over the process control in the goods inbound and outbound areas of the logistics center and the three production units. For the complex intralogistics processes for the on-time, time-critical equipping of the production with components for the batteries, PSIwms also manages a narrow and a wide aisle warehouse as well as a single-aisle tray warehouse.

In addition to four pick-to-light picking, repacking and packing workstations, the software system coordinates the route train transports in particular. The logistics control station ensures end-to-end process transparency. In addition, the ERP system, the material flow calculator for the tray warehouse and a test system for battery and accumulator testing will be connected to the PSIwms.

The replacement of the previous warehouse management system is scheduled for the first half of 2021. The “billing” and “multi-client capability” modules of PSIwms, which will also be installed at that time, will offer BMZ the option of temporarily renting out part of the warehouse and storage locations and expanding the business areas to include third-party logistics.

Based on its own software products, PSI Group develops and integrates complete solutions for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy networks, energy trading, public transport) and industry (metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). PSI was founded in 1969 and employs more than 2,000 people worldwide.
