Efficient material handling of meat and egg products
The High Bay Warehouse is 22 meters high, allowing for 4,000 pallet locations on a footprint of only 450 square meters.
Two Swisslog Vectura stacker cranes automatically store and retrieve pallets. With a maximum throughput of 120 pallets per hour, Nortura achives the highest levels of productivity thanks to increased throughput and optimized processes.
Swisslog’s solution design was the deciding factor for us when choosing an automation partner. We have extended the solution several times during the last decade, and we are very pleased with the results it has brought us. Prior's intralogistics operation is actually more than four times as cost efficient after automating.
