Respond to market needs
With distribution customers in the hardware, household and security sectors, orders are extremely fragmented and dispersed throughout the territory. Improving shipping times and stock management are factors that directly affect customer service, and therefore are a primary objective for the Piedmontese company.
"The activities of picking and storing materials, previously carried out in semi-automatic mode, were no longer suitable to respond adequately to a market always in search of performance, speed, and space efficiency. Improving the material stock management and guaranteeing greater safety at work were necessary elements to fulfill the company’s new requirements," says Andrea Bernardi, Swisslog sales manager.
With a view to improving processes and management, Machieraldo Gustavo SpA has decided to equip itself with an automated warehouse system capable of optimizing the storage area for small and light goods. By concentrating everything in a single space, all operations are managed through a new AutoStore system that was able to communicate perfectly with its host, throughout the whole goods in and goods out process.
