Fully automated warehouse in the pharmaceutical panorama

Mecalux fully automates the Disalfarm silo warehouse in Barcelona.

'To increase warehouse efficiency without stopping the facilities daily operation' - that was the challenge from Mecalux client Disalfam. With a flow rate of 1400 pallets a day, it would be tough..

After solving the first phase, in which automated pallet headers were implemented, the company aimed to improve warehouse efficiency without losing storage capacity. The company implemented 15 automatic stacker cranes to replace VNA trucks being used.

The global logistics solution has not only tripled the flow of daily pallets movements to more than 5000, but has also drastically reduced accidents and errors due to manual operations. Safety and efficiency have been improved. The project has seen produced a rapid return on investment.
