Segezha Packaging digitalizes warehouse management activities at its production plants in Germany and Denmark


Segezha Packaging, which is consolidating the European paper packaging production facilities of the Segezha Group, will continue implementing digital industrial technologies in its production processes.

As a part of this transformation process, a special SAP module for warehouse management was integrated at Segezha Packaging production plants in Germany and Denmark. The development and implementation was successfully completed by the German Serkem.

The new module allows to perform any warehouse operation, including the arrival of raw materials, processing along the technological chain, storage and shipment, via any operator mobile device (tablet PC or smartphone), and to place the corresponding information in the general database. Furthermore, the integration of barcode scanners will significantly facilitate the information workflow, including information on the shipments status within the facility.

“At both our production facilities in Germany and Denmark warehousing operations have been fully integrated with SAP, and will now be performed quickly and transparently”, says Michael Amann, Manager for the Development and Support of Business Systems at Segezha Packaging. “A simple and intuitive operation algorithm will not require any special knowledge of the SAP platform. Error probability has been reduced to a minimum, because less data will be entered manually.”
