Conrad Electronic SE

As an internationally operating company, Conrad is present as an omnichannel provider for technology and electronics with national subsidiaries in 16 European countries. Founded in 1923, the family-owned company, which is still owner-managed today, has gradually grown from a specialist mail order company for electronic components to a professional sourcing platform for technical operating needs. Conrad uses state-of-the-art logistics processes to supply its customers in more than 150 countries. The logistics centre in Wernberg-Köblitz, which is only a few kilometres away from company headquarters in Hirschau, is a high-tech facility of gigantic proportions. The Conrad branches are also supplied from this functional building complex, which houses a fully automated high-bay warehouse with 44,000 pallet spaces and a shuttle warehouse with 235,000 storage spaces that was commissioned in 2014. On average, around 40,000 parcels leave the distribution centre every day, and up to 75,000 parcels at peak times.
