One of the major plastic manufacturers in Spain, the Sp Berner Plastic Group, and Mecalux join forces again with the installation of the high-density semi-automatic Pallet Shuttle system in pallet racks. Located in Paterna (Valencia), the warehouse will accommodate more than 10,000 pallets. Sp Berner is an exclusive supplier of Mercadona, as well as other distribution giants such as Ikea, Carrefour and Bauhaus.
Standing 8.9 m tall and containing nine blocks of racks, this solution holds 10,416 pallets of 800 x 1,200 mm, each weighing a maximum of 500 kg. All blocks provide three-tiered storage, whose structure will be enabled for the autonomous movements of the Pallet Shuttle inside the storage channels, ensuring a constant flow of goods.
This new warehouse project only confirms the positive business connection Sp Berner and Mecalux enjoy. Among all the solutions installed in recent years, two racking warehouses stand out. Both are operated by Pallet Shuttles in the company's central plant in Aldaya (Valencia). In total, this storage area exceeds 30,000 m2 in size.
