Case: Bufab


Bufab France needed to develop its manual warehouse of 5200 m2 where all customer orders were picked from traditional pallet racking. Logistik & Projekt was commissioned to do a preliminary study on introducing Shelf-rack and Flow-rack, with picking controlled from WMS and PDAs. During the course of the assignment, the solution was changed to make the majority of all picking from vertical lift modules. The decision was to install eight Kardex Shuttle XPs.

"The solution was changed and developed during the course of the project. Thanks to a transparent collaboration between us at Bufab and the consultants at Logistik & Projekt, we were able to work our way to the best solution” – CEO Bufab France

Success factors

  • Broad knowledge of different solutions to be able to evaluate different options.
  • Prestigious approach to finding the best solution for the customer.


  • The installation of eight Kardex Shuttle XP takes up 128 m2 but gives a tray area in the machines of 2628 m2.
  • "Color pick" and "pick by light" ensure fast and safe picking.
  • The number of picking hours per day has been reduced by 56%.
