and is linked to another by the automated

guided vehicle (AGV). Raw materials from

the dry range and packaging materials are

stored in the new automated high-bay

warehouse. The adjacent production hall

is supplied from the HBW by means of a

driverless transport system (AGV). The highbay warehouse with 4 aisles stores Euro or

industrial pallets on 6 levels. Thanks to the

4-place field storage, either 4 Euro pallets

or 3 industrial pallets can be stored in one

storage location.

OUR APPROACH

'We approached our customer by starting

with a workshop to discover their needs

and objectives, and then designed with

the customer a concept perfectly meeting

their expectations,' shares Swisslog's Sven

Borghoff who supported Rapunzel the

requirements and design phase. 'We studied

the existing data flow of material and

evaluated possible future areas of demand.

Together with Rapunzel we analyzed the

local situation, delivering a solution proposal

that satisfies current and future needs of the

business.'

FOCUS ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND PEOPLE

'I am proud of our consulting team in

Germany, as they easily found a common

language with Rapunzel's management and

team members. It is an honor to serve a

dynamically developing family enterprise,

with a long history in the bio-food segment,

and whose values are deeply embedded

in trusting people and caring for the

environment. I am particularly happy that

they have put their faith in our people.

I truly believe that through innovation,

Rapunzel will create a safe and efficient

workplace for its employees, while scaling

up the business.' states Antonio Trioschi,

Swisslog CEO.

Rapunzel will start their operations in the

raw material warehouse in June 2022. This

will mark another successful deployment of

projects with environmentally-oriented and

eco-conscious food and beverage producers

that Swisslog wishes to support.

We have already supported BioPartner,

Weiling and Alnatura and we welcome

supporting more fair and sustainable

businesses with their growth.

'Swisslog's know-how and appetite to

appreciation for innovation, put them

at the top of the list and made the

choice an easy one.'
