TGT-Lácteos de Karrantza: automated management of dairy products


TGT-Lácteos de Karrantza, manufacturer of dairy products, will commission an automated warehouse with Pallet Shuttle where it will manage nearly 300 SKUs on 1,937 pallets. The installation, located in the village of Karrantza Harana (Basque Country, Spain), is run by Mecalux's Easy WMS. This software is responsible for optimising the flow of movements and providing total traceability of goods.

The warehouse will be composed of a single aisle with racking on both sides measuring 50 m long and 10 m high. A twin-mast stacker crane will transfer the goods along the aisle to the corresponding channel; once there, a motorised shuttle will automatically move them to the deepest location.

In addition to maximising the storage area, this solution will ensure a constant, error-free flow of inputs and outputs, under the supervision and control of Easy WMS.

“This automated solution will leverage the storage space and increase productivity in the logistics processes of the TGT Group’s plant in Karrantza. It will also provide the manufacturing lines with greater capacity to grow and optimise production.”
