Coop, Norway: A smart automated logistics facility for all needs
Coop Norge SA, Norway's second-largest grocery chain, has 28,000 employees, eight chains, and 1,250 stores and department stores. In 2018, Coop Norge's non-food division, Coop Faghandel, built an automated logistics centre in Langhus, a central warehouse facility outside Oslo. Swisslog was chosen as a partner for the venture.
60% productivity increase
The biggest benefit for Coop Faghandel is the flexible central warehouse can serve all eight chains and e-commerce with a high level of service and efficiency.
The new facility is designed to meet storage needs until 2030. After that, the high-bay warehouse and light goods facility can be expanded on the existing site. Additional automation is possible within the facility too.
