New spare parts centre Dingolfing
The realisation of the new dynamic centre is the most important project in parts sales for the BMW Group in 30 years. On a site of 550,000 sqm, completely new logistics structures were created to supply the worldwide trading organisation.
Fast-moving large and medium-sized parts are stored and handled in the ultra-modern distribution centre. Every year, more than 4 million delivery note items are processed in a hall covering 117,000 sqm. This means that 6,000 cubic meters of BMW and MINI parts are delivered to regional distribution centres in Germany and abroad, as well as to importers and 300 South-German dealers every day.
In addition to the highest principle of "profitable growth", the planning focused on service level and lead time. The BMW Group's market and product campaign also meant a new challenge for the distribution of accessories and spare parts. The department was faced with an increase in parts positions of around 50 %, amounting to 260,000 different items.
io-consultants' task was the concept and detail design of all logistical facilities in the new dynamic centre, based on a data analysis, and the generation of the invitation to tender for storage and conveyor systems, and operating equipment.
