Essity: The Cornerstone of Stacking and Retrieving

Leading hygiene and health company, Essity facility in Hoogezand has a strategic position within the group. Essity chose Swisslog, who in the role of main contractor took charge of the entire project, from design and construction of the new high-bay warehouse – measuring 30 meters high and 120 meters wide with around 27,000 pallet locations.

Swisslog Monorail is the Heart of the System 

The state-of-the-art solution that Swisslog implemented at Essity comprises approximately 1,000 meters of conveyor belts, nine automatic high-reaching cranes, a KUKA layer picking robot and a monorail system. The production departments are connected to the new warehouse by a 500 meter-long bridge that runs across a public highway.
