Sustainability and automation

Migros Verteilbetrieb AG places the utmost importance on sustainability. For the shipping of goods from the warehouse to the store, it uses the OPM storage and picking system from Witron. The system ensures fully automated, space-saving and careful placement of the retail units on load carriers from WALTHER Faltsysteme.

Reusable trays on conveyor belt

Customised trays for fully automatic order picking

We developed special trays for this type of system, which are also used at Migros Verteilbetrieb AG.


In the warehouse, movement, loading, and storing of the trays is fully automatic. The smooth picking process is achieved by four in-mould labels with an additional side identifier so that the goods are optimally placed in terms of weight and dimensions. Then the goods are lifted off the tray with spikes, pushed onto the appropriate load carrier and transported to the stores.
