Training centre Startévo has opened an installation in the village of Leulinghem (France) so that its students — junior employees and future professionals of the logistics sector — can develop their skills by working in a warehouse on a daily basis. Mecalux has installed pallet racking, picking shelves, the semi-automated Pallet Shuttle system and the Easy WMS warehouse management system.
Logistics is one of the five sectors that create the most jobs in France. In the north, where the Startévo training centre is located, there is a high demand for labour, yet there are few candidates. Thanks to its training warehouse, Startévo professionally trains students in the various activities connected to logistics (such as order preparation, the use of forklifts, and even warehouse management and administration).
The company sought the cooperation of Mecalux because it needed a firm with extensive expertise to assist and advise it on the design and start-up of a warehouse with a WMS. This installation also provides students with training in the safe operation of handling equipment.
Mecalux has implemented very diverse storage systems: pallet racking, picking shelves, the semi-automated Pallet Shuttle system and the Easy WMS warehouse management system. With these solutions, Startévo students can practice all kinds of operations, including goods receipt, order prep, and storage and dispatch tasks.

“We are here to serve the companies in our territory. The storage systems implemented by Mecalux are a mirror image of a completely real warehouse, and they also offer our customers a window into solutions they can use to optimise their installations.”
