Cold expert

French leader in the automated storage of pallets in frozen areas, Alstef Group Alstef Group is committed to providing its customers with all its expertise.

To improve the operators working conditions and according to regulations, Alstef Group has developed and implemented a concept of order preparations allowing:

  • the storage of pallets in stacker crane area under negative cold zone (-25 to -30 ° C)
