Pooled know-how from a single source. No surprises.

The warehouse

Optimum usage of space for maximum capacity


Capacity miracle
Optimum space concept for maximum storage volumes

High-load concrete floor. Wrap-around concrete base 2.50 m for burglary protection

Easy implementation
Project development and construction work from a single source

Top quality design with economical element concept

Tried and tested
Put to successful use in the moving, haulage and logistics industry


KECO is based on a generously sized warehouse building that utilises the entire space including the remotest corners, making full use of the very last cubic centimetre.

The warehouse is designed to take numerous 20', 40' and high-cube containers without any problems. The ideal design is therefore compatible for many partners. The warehouse concept can be extended and varied in height and length. Up to 7 containers can be stacked on top of each other. The complete system consists of the warehouse, overhead crane with special spreader, crane control, warehouse management and database with SQL interface.


Modern container storage


Robust infralogistics with heavy-duty materials

Simple handling
Containers are taken into storage fully automatically

Minimum staffing costs, optimum usage of space, fast storage and retrieval rates

Conditioned storage
Dark, cool storage environment

Vibration- and shock-free
The containers are taken into storage with millimetre precision and absolutely vibration- and shock-free


Hauliers, removal companies and logistics firms benefit from extremely simple handling that needs no extra staff. KECO operators even benefit twice over: the tailor-made infrastructure permits complete utilisation of the entire space. The containers are positioned with millimetre precision. The system also works fully automatically with extremely low staffing costs. A constant inside temperature ensures safe, clean, dust-free, dry storage, protected from weather exposure in the top quality steel container with passive air conditioning.

20' containers, high-cube containers, refrigerated containers, construction containers etc. can be stored with no effort. Special zones and storage strategies can be defined.


Perfect infralogistics for efficient business

Optimum handling times

The containers are brought into the front zone, where the spreader docks onto the container. It is then taken into storage fully automatically. KECO offers an automatic crane unit in a combined storage system. The crane unit is used for automatic storage, relocation or retrieval of containers. The double girder overhead crane has a span of approx. 22 m to approx. 29 m and can take loads of up to approx. 45 t (20').

Laser-assisted precision and shock-free transport means that the system can also be used without hesitation for delicate goods. Transport within the warehouse is vibration- and shock-free without compromising quality.


Fully automatic. For foolproof handling

High availability

Administration and storage software for absolute control

Operation both local and remote by tablet

Always available
Automated 24/7 operation for constant access to warehouse, goods and data

The warehouse management system links the database, the crane control and the operator. This component is based on software that supports the storage, relocation or retrieval of containers. The software synchronizes warehouse stocks with the crane control and manages the container master data. The visualization feature offers scope for defining container characteristics (colour-coded or with images) together with special zones and storage strategies (e.g. no-go zones or containers with special features as close as possible to the window).
The warehouse management system also shows the status of the crane and prints hand-over/receipt acknowledgements. Swift operation results in short time sequences. The containers can be retrieved from any place at any time.
