The winemaking company Gil Family Estates is building a new 5,000 m2 warehouse in Jumilla (Murcia) where it will organise close to 500 different SKUs. Once it is commissioned, the company will implement the Easy WMS warehouse management software from Mecalux.
The warehouse will comprise four blocks of racks with the semi-automatic Pallet Shuttle system. The goods will be managed as per the FIFO principle (first in, first out). In other words, the first pallet in will be the first to leave. Mecalux will also install 12 m high pallet racks.
Easy WMS Enterprise (the most robust, advanced version of the software) will be set up here to manage all operations. This WMS will provide the business with many advantages: increased productivity, decreased number of operations, real-time stock control and order prep, better delivery times to customers and cost reductions.
Diego Lozano Quílez - Operations manager at Gil Family Estates
"Easy WMS of Mecalux will minimise errors made by operators while performing tasks inside the warehouse and will yield an increase in productivity and efficiency, which optimises in-warehouse movements. It all entails more safety and confidence for operators as they carry out their professional duties and, as a result, higher company productivity."
Guarantee of origin
Gil Family Estates is a group of small bodegas spread throughout the Spanish territory. As such, the company was able to bring together a broad catalogue of Spanish wines of differing characteristics and origins. The common denominator being: local grape varieties, a refined image and an unbeatable price-quality ratio.
