A bold approach to logistics for Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG

Logistics For Printing Machines BC

Logistics in the engineering industry are subject to major fluctuations in volume. By providing tailor-made concepts for each individual customer, LGI can offer flexible solutions to this challenge. And not just that: by working together with Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, LGI has evolved from its origins as a traditional logistics services provider to become a highly specialist business partner. How did it do that? Let’s have a look at LGI’s business case for Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG…


Services: from traditional logistics to complex value-added services

  • Traditional logistics services: collection, storage, picking and provision of machine components
  • Traditional transport services: shipment planning and dispatch for machine parts
  • Just in time & just in sequence: timely supply of parts to all assembly areas, and provision of parts for every step in the assembly sequence, from the assembly of printing machines to their delivery
  • Sophisticated solutions for supply: Kanban method for assembly stations
  • Tailored IT solutions: stock management based on customer’s existing IT system, and paper-free picking with handheld terminals


Benefits : outstanding flexibility thanks to clearly defined responsibilities

  • Outstanding flexibility: LGI can handle even extreme fluctuations in volume with ease, thanks to its shorter communications paths, faster reaction speeds and solution-oriented methods of approach
  • Clearly defined responsibilities: a single, dedicated contact person and clearly assigned jobs helps every task run smoothly
  • Individualized logistics solution: this concept has proven its worth over 10 years, because LGI has customized it to meet the specific needs of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG
  • Lean management philosophy: thanks to our own specially developed lean management system, the “LGI Operating System”, we can continually adapt our processes to meet new challenges
  • Everything’s under control: permanent stocktaking ensures inventory security
