Avnet Inc, one of the world’s largest distributors of electronic components and computer products, operates a central warehouse in Poing near Munich, including a programming centre for Europe and the Middle East. The entire material flow is highly automated and perfectly designed for the special handling of sensitive components. As a logistics partner, the GEBHARDT Intralogistics Group from Sinsheim supported the operator during the implementation.
