FPT’s miniload warehouse for boxes in France

The warehouse will consist of a single aisle with double-deep racks on both sides. They will be 9 m high, with 26 shelf levels, and will offer a storage capacity for 7,272 boxes. In them, the company will deposit the smaller-sized parts such as spark plugs, filters, bolts, etc.

Along the aisle, a miniload stacker crane will insert and remove the boxes from their locations. Right in front of the racks, there will be a picking station where order picking will be carried out according to the “product-to-person” principle.

“We have chosen to install an automated warehouse to increase our storage productivity. This system will also allow us to respond better to production demands and improve the working conditions of our employees by reducing the number of boxes they must handle.”
