Rewe International is introducing Körber’s K.Motion warehouse management system (WMS) at 40 European locations. Rewe International, headquartered in Wiener Neudorf, operates around 4,000 stores in Austria, Italy and eight Eastern European countries. Körber, the Constance-based conglomerate, supplies numerous solutions for optimising intralogistics processes through its Supply Chain division. From the retail sector dm, Tchibo, Douglas, Mango, and Intersport Deutschland use solutions from Körber.
With the logistics solution K.Motion, Rewe International considers itself well prepared for upcoming challenges in the retail sector. “This is enabled, for example, by the modern Business Process Engine of the WMS, which allows business processes to be adapted flexibly and immediately without additional effort. With the software platform developed by Körber, we are well prepared for both upcoming automation projects and expected corporate growth,” explains Manfred Mülleder, WMS Project Manager at Rewe International.
Complete roll-out planned by 2028
The warehouse management solution is to be rolled out in two stages: In the pilot phase until mid-2025, Körber will implement the WMS at five locations for dry and fresh assortments as well as cross docking. An integration into the existing ERP system of Rewe International is also planned. The other 35 locations will be converted by Rewe International with support from Körber. The roll-out is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2028.
