AlzChem will build an automatic Pallet Shuttle run warehouse in Trostberg

24/10/2018

The AlzChem chemical company will build a new 25 m high automated warehouse run by the automatic Pallet Shuttle system. Overall, the warehousing capacity will exceed 5,000 pallets. The company will deploy the Easy WMS, a powerful warehouse management system (WMS) developed by Mecalux, to guide the operations of such a large project.

The warehouse will include a single-aisle run by a combined stacker crane-Pallet Shuttle system. Two installed blocks of racks, either 10 and 11 m deep, will accommodate between seven and eight pallets per channel. The warehouse will be linked to the production building via a conveyor circuit that will move raw materials. End product will flow straight back to the warehouse installation by means of a second conveyor.

The Mecalux WMS will stage an organised input and output of the goods, and assign locations to the pallets. The constant, two-way communication between the Easy WMS and the AlzChem ERP means better productivity in this logistics centre.

Andreas Hensel - Materials Manager
“Mecalux caught our attention with their competitive project proposal. Now, we run 24/7 and do it completely operator-free during the night shift.”
