Bergendahl’s Food, Sweden: Automation for efficiency

Bergendahl’s Food is a family-owned retailer and wholesaler of convenience goods in Sweden. It is also an important e-commerce player, offering online grocery shopping. With annual growth of 10-15 percent, Bergendahl’s has invested in a new automated high bay warehouse for improved efficiency, better space utilization and sustainable future growth and profitability.

The new automated high bay warehouse consists of a conveyor system and four double-deep Vectura stacker cranes that automatically store and retrieve pallets.

The cranes serve over 17,000 pallet locations on a footprint of only 4,500 square meters.

The hardware is also supported by SynQ warehouse management software from Swisslog.
