Gilgen Logistics AG was commissioned to extend the conveying system for trays. Additional workstations were created in the good inwards, technical inspection and batching areas, while the entire goods outwards area were renovated and expanded. Ten automatic stacker cranes were newly installed to increase the handling efficiency within the warehouse and reduce the wait times at the order picking stations.
The units are equipped with a special load-carrying mechanism which makes it possible to insert or remove a maximum of ten cartons. The warehouse has room for about 430’000 items and will be one of the country's largest once the project is completed.
By deploying the latest technology, it was possible to optimise the flow of goods and augment the throughput volume.
