Music Store in tune with logistics with TGW


As one of Europe’s largest music retailers, Cologne Music Store GmbH has established a reputation among professional and hobby musicians during the last few years, and beyond Germany’s borders, especially in online-retail. A huge range of items and premium shipping service caused the company over proportional growth, which increased the requirements in logistics.

Since May 2011, more than 60,000 products, from guitar picks to digital pianos, have been stored, picked and packed and sent to customers from the new logistics centre. Music Store entrusted Pierau Planung and systems integrator TGW with the realisation of the new logistics centre.

New logistics solution for Music Store

The combination of pallet high bay rack for 14,000 pallets and an automated mini-load offering 15,000 storage positions leads to the ideal storage of the various Music Store products. Goods are picked at pick-by-light workstations and then sent into every directions. Due to Music Store’s permanent growth, further enhancements have been considered in the building of the new logistics centre.
