The largest cement plant in the Salzburg region invests in the most modern transport logistics: With the BLS logistics control system from BERTHOLD, Leube is relying on leading and future-proof technology.
Quality cement products and consistent investment in the most modern technologies secure a strong market position for the Leube Group.
In April 2021, Leube took a further step towards a secure future with the commissioning of one of the most modern dispatch automation systems: Goods deliveries and deliveries of raw and auxiliary materials for the cement plant in St. Leonhard are to be processed in an automated manner.
Leube was looking for a comprehensive system that is safe to operate, encompasses all processes and can demonstrate maximum practical suitability.
Mature technology with industry knowledge
The decision was made in favor of the BLS logistics control system from BERTHOLD, which fully meets all requirements and can be seamlessly integrated into the cement plant. Numerous reference applications testify to the high practicality of the system.
In addition to the mature and tried and tested technology, Leube also has access to the full expertise of the experienced technicians from BERTHOLD, which is brought into the project from the start.
In close cooperation with the employees of LEUBE, a BLS system is created that is precisely configured to the requirements
The BLS logistics control system
