Automated solution for temperature-controlled warehouses

Wednesday, 10 June, 2020 | Supplied by: Dematic Pty Ltd

Dematic has been awarded an automation project for two temperature-controlled warehouses with Americold, a temperature-controlled infrastructure and supply chain solutions and services company. The company required an automation solution to facilitate the temperature-controlled supply chain in retail fulfilment.

The Dematic integrated solution includes goods-in receiving, automatic delayering, tray handling, sortation, automatic pallet building, dispatch trailer sequencing and ergonomic case picking.

The solution will feature a Dematic high-bay unit load AS/RS for pallets and the Dematic Multishuttle for case buffering and sequencing. The combination of these technologies, managed and operated by Dematic software, will provide an effective and compact mixed-case handling solution.

The facilities will be true four-walled automated solutions with automated mixed-case palletising systems, to ensure cube optimisation improvements. Efficient packaging will mean fewer trucks needed for delivery, and shelf-ready pallets will enable quick restocking of store shelves.

Bernard Biolchini, CEO, Dematic Americas, said: “The Dematic Center of Excellence for Grocery worked in true partnership with Americold to develop the right solution. These fully automated facilities, powered by Dematic iQ software, will provide immense operational flexibility, supporting an omnichannel experience and multi-channel growth.”
