Welcome to issue No. 32 of Mecalux’s Best Practices magazine. This edition showcases success stories from companies such as Moderna Products (Belgium), IKEA Components (Slovakia) and General Óptica (Spain), which have invested in automation and digitalisation to drive their supply chains. Discover the technological solutions implemented by businesses like Konya Şeker (Turkey), which has built an automated clad–rack warehouse with a capacity for 48,000 pallets in a seismic area.
