High-speed automated preparation chosen by the distribution and production industries
In the United States, a large industrial meat warehouse has recently been implemented. The world’s largest X-PTS automated storage facility, with 12 X-PTS aisles on 30 levels, buffers a steady stream of production boxes and powers palletizing robots, all in cool environments.
In France, one of the leaders in the distribution of DIY equipment chose to increase the logistics of its warehouse in the Paris region and double its storage area. Already equipped with a solution combining reception stations, picking stations and X-PTS goods-to-person system, the warehouse will integrate five new X-PTS aisles in 2023 and acquire a shipping buffer, to serve 12 order picking stations and ensure the new deliveries expected to new stores in France.
History repeats itself with a supplier of automotive accessories, near Orleans, which has chosen to get equipped with an automated storage system and centralize its European distribution. From the start the solution is initially designed to be scalable and while 4 X-PTS aisles were delivered in 2022, the distributor anticipated the possible installation of a 5th aisle as well as an additional GTP station.
