Wacker has opened recently a new logistics facility at its production site in Amtala near Kolkata. This warehouse will be operated by Wacker Metroark Chemicals (WMC), a joint venture between Wacker and Kolkata based Metroark. The new logistics center compliments WMC’s existing network of warehouses located in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata.

Amtala/India – The high-bay warehouse has a capacity of about 5,000 pallet spaces and utilizes ten layer racking. It uses Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) forklifts that are wire guided to retrieve goods. The SAP warehouse management module ensures improved insight into the inventory and storage locations. Scanners will keep track of various transactions in the warehouse. Thus, the inventory information is made available to the operators in real time via a computer interface attached to the VNA.
