The EDEKA group of companies in Northern Bavaria, Saxony and Thuringia, with headquarters in Rottendorf, is one of seven regional companies in the EDEKA corporate network. It supplies about 1000 retail markets in Northern Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Thuringia, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt. These markets offer their customers an extensive assortment of food, fresh items and drugstore products. In keeping with their motto “We love food,” they emphasize quality, selection, service and freshness in their retail business.
A high-performance logistics concept is an indispensable prerequisite for the corporate group to be able to send off goods deliveries punctually. To ensure this, EDEKA had for some years already been using roll carts with lead batteries to receive products arriving in incoming goods. As part of continuously streamlining these processes, they were searching for the successor solution or a suitable alternative. Since ACD is also known as a supplier in other areas, they quickly came upon the MAX mobile workstation.
