Electrolux Distriparts, Sweden
Hi280 shelving plus a mobile shelving system provided Electrolux Distriparts AB, who are located in one of the major logistic areas of Sweden - Jönköping, with a modern picking facility.
The company is a well established 3rd party logistic supplier with many customers i.e. Huskvarna AB. Warehouse space 35.000 m² containing approx 125.000 articles.
Distriparts expanded their businesses and had a requirement to increase efficiency (speed of delivery) at their existing plant which was served by a crane installation. Difficulties getting spare parts for their existing cranes were also a major problem.
An in depth analysis was carried out based on the following key factors – picking speed, warehouse capacity/m², staff. The result of this analysis was a tough modernized solution based on a shelving system over two levels (multi tier) divided by a mezzanine floor. Hi280 Shelving in combination with modern mobile shelving provided the answer to this problem. Picking is conducted by staff, using newly developed trolley mopeds. The investment has resulted in faster picking, a reduced number of employees and increased flexibility at the warehouse.
