    Chosing automation

    In order to increase its storage capacity and reduce its logistics costs, SCA Normande, the LECLERC group’s purchasing center for Normandy and overseas, has entrusted Alstef Group with the automation of its new distribution platform for consumer products.

     

    Automated storage

    The Alstef Group services initially consisted of equipping and commissioning the new automated storage , then to renovate the two automatic stocks installed by Alstef Group in 1986 and 1990; storage capacity thus dropping from 12,600 pallets to 29,200 pallets, fully automated thanks to 7 stacker cranes.

     

    Transitics

    To accomodate the layout of the shipping docks and the receiving docks (on either side of the shipping docks) and allow the storage of loads received in all the aisles and the shipment of pallets from of all stocks, the load transfer between the different points is ensured by self-propelled hanging baskets.

    These materials move past the areas of:

    • reception,
    • order preparation replenishment,
    • storage,
    • shipping.

    On reception, the pallets can be automatically placed on slave pallets (if necessary for storage). These are automatically removed before the shipping lanes are filled.
