Ground-breaking ceremony for new Würth warehouse

Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG, parent company of the Würth Group, is building a new transshipment centre directly on the A6/Kupferzell exit in the Hohenlohe industrial park, with the ground-breaking ceremony taking place on June 25th. 

The aim of the optimized logistics strategy is to avoid delivery splits and to bundle the items per order so that the customer receives exactly one package or shipment. Around 20% of all orders from the new warehouse go directly to other European countries: stocking the warehouses of Würth subsidiaries, shipments directly to end customers who are based abroad.

This main transshipment base brings Würth closer to the destination in the overall logistics process while at the same time transshipping less. "With this conversion of the entire logistics structure, we are able to provide the customer with a wide range in exactly one delivery. This is a real milestone in our logistics management,” said Thomas Wahl, Managing Director of Logistics at Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG. "This reduces the number of packages at the customer's as well as the filling material."

The investment sum for the new warehouse and the associated redesign of the logistics process amounts to around 73 million euros and requires a corresponding freight volume. In the final phase, around 300 employees will work in two shifts in the new logistics complex.
