Same Deutz-Fahr Deutschland GmbH in Lauingen supplies its assembly lines with a total of 4 factory train load trains from NEUMAIER. Same Deutz-Fahr already decided at planning stage of the new plant, which was built two years ago, to do the assembly line delivery via Factory Train load trains. What used to be laboriously transported to the assembly line by forklift trucks is now carried out efficiently and safely with NEUMAIER Factory Train load trains.
The challenge and the solution was that the Factory Train load trains could transport different trolleys without any modification effort. Michael Götz, Warehouse Manager at Same Deutz-Fahr Deutschland GmbH, is absolutely convinced by the Factory Train load trains: “By using the Factory Trains we were able to significantly increase our efficiency. We can deliver more parts in less time. We have less forklift traffic in out assembly hall. We were able to reduce the traffic by approx. 75 percent. This means, that the safety for our employees has increased significantly and the transport damages that we used to have in the past have decreased significantly due to the use of the Factory Trains".
