A fully automated warehouse for BMW is currently being built in Dingolfing. It creates space for 70,000 mesh boxes.
The growth in BMW Group’s aftersales logistics is visible in Dingolfing from afar. A 35-meter high and ultra-modern high-bay warehouse is currently being built on the area of the dynamic center (Plant 02.70). To meet the increasing global demand for original BMW, MINI and BMW motorcycle spare parts and accessories, up to 70,000 mesh boxes will be stored there from the end of 2020.
In these there are traditionally spare parts such as control units, brake discs or floor mats, which can be delivered to regional warehouses around the world on customer request. The high-bay warehouse is fully integrated into the existing building structure, and BMW employees are responsible for its operational operations.
The modern high-bay warehouse is part of the expansion of the dynamic center and could be realized without additional space consumption. The fully automated high-bay warehouse offers ten times the storage capacity compared to a conventional warehouse.
Overall, the BMW Group has invested a low double-digit million amount in the new building, thereby securing the long-term viability of the Dingolfing location.
