The logistics operator AZA Logistics opts for automation
AZA Logistics' new automated distribution centre will enable greater productivity, efficiency and optimisation of available space, resulting in a substantial improvement in the service it offers its customers
AZA Logistics, an integrated logistics operator with headquarters in Valencia, opts for intralogistics automation at its Sagunto distribution centre (with a capacity for 60,000 pallet spaces and with certifications to store medicines, cosmetics and packaged food) alongside the integrator ULMA Handling Systems, which has been the exclusive distributor, since 1984, of the stacker cranes and equipment of the Japanese manufacturer and world leader DAIFUKU.
“When starting the project, we were faced with the need to reduce errors to zero in the order picking process, increase productivity in picking operations and, as a result, reduce costs for our customers”, said German Monedero, CEO of AZA Logistics.
AZA Logistics’ new automated facilities will have an automated warehouse managed by mini-load stacker cranes, with the aim of achieving the logistics operator's mission by maximising picking productivity; contributing to the creation of wealth and well-being for its stakeholders. “This automation project will provide several advantages at AZA Logistics: to be more competitive with our customers, to have greater picking capacity, as well as to reach other sectors of activity in which we currently have less presence”, explained German Monedero. “In addition, it will improve ergonomics for our operators in the order picking process”, he continued.
The automated box warehouse will have a capacity of more than 23,500 positions and a height of more than 18 metres. Thanks to this, AZA Logistics will be able to perform more efficient, accurate and agile order picking, as well as fulfil different functions such as restocking to other unit picking subsystems, pallet sequencing and dispatch. “ULMA Handling Systems' dedication and advice, together with its capacity, knowledge and proven solvency in the automation market have been key factors in our choice”, concluded the CEO of AZA Logistics.
