Well insulated through the winter

The construction of our new logistics warehouse continues to progress in the new year. After the roof was closed at the end of last year, it is now the turn of the insulation of the outer shells. In keeping with the Green Logistics concept, LSU Schäberle is also focusing on sustainability here.

With the photovoltaic system, which will be installed on the entire roof area, LSU is setting standards in the field of renewable energies.

Vaccination rate at LSU: at 93%, well above the national average

Already at the beginning of the pandemic in spring 2020, LSU Schäberle focused on the health of its employees with a comprehensive hygiene concept at the workplace. “Only in this way can we ensure long-term safety for our customers in our joint transport and logistics processes”, Thomas Schäberle confirms the decision made at that time to have maintained a comprehensive hygiene concept, distance rules and a mask requirement at the workplace long before the legal obligation and also beyond.
Now, about one and a half years after the beginning and still in the middle of the pandemic, the vaccination and recovery rate at LSU is over 93%. Thomas Schäberle and the entire LSU team are proud of this jointly achieved performance: “This clearly showed that our open and sustained communication on the subject of Corona was well received by our employees and that the willingness to vaccinate was and is very high. Even with 3G mandatory in the workplace since the end of last week, we are safe on the road with this vaccination rate and can continue to offer our customers the quality they have come to expect from us without any restrictions.”

Apprenticeship Year 2022

Even in times of crisis, the transport of goods continues steadily. While job insecurity prevails in other industries, we are looking for new faces even in the current situation.

For the new apprenticeships year 2021, we are again looking for young people and offer apprenticeships as Kaufmann /-frau für Speditions- & Logistikdienstleistungen and as Fachkraft für Lagerlogistik.

Update on the construction

We took advantage of last week’s sunshine to document the construction progress of our new hazardous materials storage facility via drone flight.

Through the 6 fire protection walls already erected, our 7 hazardous material chambers are visibly taking shape. The division of the hazardous materials warehouse into 7 chambers enables the flexible storage of different hazardous materials.

The smart way

LSU and active logistics jointly optimize short distance planning using AI.


Our short distance team around Jürgen Wildenauer is currently working together with active logistics as part of a pilot phase.

The aim is to use active smart tour to simplify dispatch processes, especially on the night shift, and to optimize tours automatically. Our dispatcher Michael Ludwig, who is playing a major role in the project, is also mentioned in this exciting article. You can find the complete article here.

Getting ready 4 future despite Corona

LSU employs industrial and commercial trainees in permanent positions

After successfully completing their apprenticeship as Fachkraft für Lagerlogistik or Kaufmann /-frau für Logistik- & Speditionsdienstleistungen, LSU has employed five young people in permanent positions in the summer of 2021.

“Despite our pioneering role in the field of digitalization, qualified and well-trained specialists are the basis of our long-standing success,” Thomas Schäberle affirms the decision to further expand the Stuttgart location.

We are delighted about the new addition to the LSU family and wish our new colleagues continued success!

LSU implements new Warehouse Management System

Together with our strong partner iFD GmbH Chemnitz, we have successfully implemented our new WMS and thus further expanded our competitive advantage in the field of hazardous materials logistics.

Our family-owned company with locations in Stuttgart understands the requirements of the chemical industry perfectly – after all, we are experts in the storage and transport of hazardous materials and this already in the second generation. We have incorporated this know-how into this forward-looking project and are happy to make our expertise available to you.

The new warehouse management system controls not only our fully automated, oxygen-reduced hazardous materials warehouse but also the manual processes in our other logistics centres.

The following functionalities are covered by our WMS:

  • Inbound goods notification (automated via interface or manual)
  • Goods receipt via tablet and scanner-supported loading/unloading
  • Digital warehouse and stock management
  • Order scheduling, release and outbound via control centre, incl. value-added services (VAS)
  • Picking, consolidation and merging of consignments
  • Automated, detailed invoicing of storage charges and value-added services
  • Covering plant transports between different warehouses
  • Connection of individual customer interfaces
  • Control of individual customer interfaces
  • Management of dangerous goods and dangerous goods-specific master data

Features and highlights of the iFD-WMS hazardous materials module

The specially developed hazardous materials module contains all functions that are essential for the storage of hazardous materials. These include, above all, the observation of water hazard classes, maximum storage quantities and combined storage prohibitions based on hazardous substance classes.

Update on the construction

The construction of our new hazardous materials logistics warehouse is progressing steadily. Now that the foundations for the new high-shelf warehouse are in place, the first 15 m high pillars have already been set. 

From now on, we will keep you regularly informed about the further progress.
