Logistics centre: the most modern for industrial supply in Europe

The linchpin of Würth Industrie Service

In the heart of Europe lies one of the most modern logistics centre for industrial supply, the one of Würth Industrie Service in Bad Mergentheim. From here, we supply 20,000 customers throughout Europe and ensure a secure supply of production materials as well as consumables and supplies.

Supply security you can rely on.

High rack storage

High-rack warehouses

Our fully automated high-bay warehouses have a total storage capacity of approx. 190,000 storage places and follow the chaotic principle of warehousing. The storage and retrieval machines move 880 pallets per hour. For a maximum security of supply, the same items are stored in different aisles, since this way the item can be accessed if an aisle should fail.


Robots are an important component of the automation process of the intralogistics of Würth Industri Norge. Currently, eleven different robots are already in use. They are engaged in bin picking, container palletising, tray picking and shipping palletising to support our colleagues. By taking over the physically stressful tasks and through continuous use, they improve the ergonomics and increase the productivity.

Automation through the use of robotics
Multifunctional workstations

Multifunctional workstations

28 multifunctional workstations are located in the logistics centre of Würth Industrie Service. They are characterised by their flexible purposes and are used for order picking, compaction, testing and filling operation. In addition, goods receipt and goods issue tasks can be processed. The activity depends on the current demand. Integrated displays indicate the task to be performed and contribute to a reduction in the risk of errors.

OSR Shuttle warehouse

The OSR shuttle warehouse is a small parts and buffer warehouse. OSR stands for "Order Storage and Retrieval". The warehouse consists of more than 600 shuttles in 22 aisles, which are designed independently and redundantly. Today, the warehouse has a total of more than 400,000 storage locations. Owing to the large number of aisles, an item can be stored in several aisles. This ensures that the item can be accessed even if one aisle fails and thus supply security is maintained.

Bin washing system

Bin washing system

The faultless condition of the bins is also a prerequisite for a reliable supply of C-Parts. For this reason, all our items are guided through the in-house bin washing plant. It cleans the bins of any dust, oils, grease, chips and label residues and dries the bins to remove any droplets, based on the VDA regulation (wipe test). The two-track system has a total length of 14 metres and is suitable for all common KLT container sizes up to the PAL box. The KLT 4315 has a total capacity of 1,000 units per hour. A type-specific sorting is also possible.
