Salinen Austria

YEAR OF CONSTRUCTION 2008 | EBENSEE/AUSTRIA

Austria’s largest salt producer, Salinen Austria AG, has reacted decisively to the huge increase in demand over recent years and expanded production capacity at the Ebensee site from 750,000 tons of salt per year to more than a million tons. The logistics infrastructure needed not only to be expanded to keep pace with this, but also to be systematically centralized and automated. Rigorous analysis revealed that the optimal solution was a new highbay warehouse at the Salinen site in Ebensee. The associated conversion from multi to singlelevel distribution is aimed at saving up to 40 % in transport costs – which still make up a third of the company’s total costs.
