Sonova (Phonak) was honoured at the Swiss Logistics Award 2013 for its future-oriented logistics solutions: The prize was awarded for the development of an innovative storage system (MIA), which uses a transport system (Servus) to handle all goods movements and processes over four floors fully automatically.
The primary goods movements cover:
- Goods inwards and incoming inspection to the storage of raw materials, components and finished goods in the warehouse.
- Production supply and connection between the individual production stages to the storage of the finished products.
- The order picking of finished products for the distribution companies of the national organisations, as well as semi-finished products and components for the production sites in Asia.
