Schnellecke Logistics Spain: integration of people with impairments
Since 2012 Schnellecke Logistics España has been working together with Can Casas, a project for the integration of people with impairments.
So-called CKV cases are needed for CKD shipments. The problem is that they have a relatively high volume and therefore cause high costs when delivered to the site. That is why Schnellecke España decided, in coordination with the manufacturer of the cases to assemble them on site.
This created jobs that can also be performed by people with various impairments. Three times a week the team at Can Casas comes to Schnellecke with five people each time. They take on the assembly of the cartons as well as partition inserts when compartments are necessary.

Schnellecke Logistics Duisburg: employment of people with impairments
Sixteen people with impairments have been employed at Schnellecke Logistics in Duisburg since 2015. As part of a team they package automobile parts for CKD shipment. Schnellecke is aiming to fill a total of twelve such positions. The employees, the majority of whom are mentally impaired, work five hours per day and are brought to work in the morning by a shuttle service and picked up again in the afternoon. Schnellecke set up a special workplace for the new employees. There, the employees also package high-quality parts. It is ensured that the material is easy to handle and changes every once in a while so that the work does not become too monotonous.
