Liebherr – compact storage of components and spare parts

The construction machinery manufacturer was faced with the challenge of finding a space-saving storage concept for its extensive inventory while also ensuring that parts for orders were picked on time. In addition, it needed the option to increase storage capacity at short notice.


  • Space-saving storage of an extensive range of small and medium-sized parts with fast picking times
  • Existing high-bay shelf storage space to be used solely for large parts in future
  • Parts picked precisely and on time
  • Option to increase storage capacity flexibly and at short notice
  • Free up more room for production


  • Highly dense storage in shuttles: 1,185 m² of storage space on a 68 m² footprint
  • Besides small parts, components weighing up to 15 kg are also stored
  • Load placed on existing high-bay shelf storage system eased by 30 percent
  • 35 percent of the former storage space has been freed up for production as a result of the space saved
