The Easy WMS warehouse management system by Mecalux is in charge of running the operations of the warehouse Zukán owns in the town of Molina de Segura.
Fire safety in a warehouse is a particularly big challenge since, usually, these types of buildings have a high fire load.
In addition to the merchandise, installations contain elements that spur on the spread of flames, like plastic materials, cardboard or wood, among others. To minimise this risk, warehouses must have fire prevention, detection and suppression systems.
An automated warehouse for pallets will be set up in the company’s production warehouse. The installation is going to be managed by the Easy WMS warehouse management software.
