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.

News on the construction of our new hazardous materials warehouse

After the deconstruction of the former office building at Motorstrasse 7 went smoothly, the earthworks could begin at the beginning of 2021.
At the same time, our new high-shelf warehouse is growing from the existing warehouse, which will be sustainably integrated into our new logistics centre.
The new office complex that is being built, which can already be clearly seen, connects both storage areas and will be the administrative center for one of the most modern and safest hazardous materials warehouses in Germany.

40th anniversary at LSU

On May 01, LSU Schäberle had the pleasure of celebrating the first 40-year anniversary in the company’s history together with Hans-Dieter Weber.

Mr. Weber has founded his long and successful career at LSU on 01.05.1981 with the apprenticeship as forwarding agent. As department manager Euronational transports, he has held an important key position in the forwarding company for many years. “We are proud to have been able to count on such a loyal employee for 40 years,” says Heinz Schäberle, who founded the company in 1973, about his first trainee at LSU.

We look forward to many more successful years together with Mr. Weber at LSU.


Thomas Schäberle remains a member of the DIHK Transport Committee

We are pleased that Thomas Schäberle has again been appointed by the Executive Board of the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce as a member of the DIHK Transport Committee. The nomination was made for the committee period from 2021 to 2024.

Mr. Schäberle will represent the Stuttgart Metropolitan Region and bring his input from this important economic region to the committee.

LSU: mattress donation to homeless shelter
