Pfanner – Austria's largest beverage producer builds with BSS

BSS has built a new product distribution centre as general contractor for this company which is growing fast in the European Union. The four-aisle high bay warehouse with a storage capacity of 11,500 pallets is set to be extended to 6 aisles in the second phase. Juice cartons manufactured in the production are automatically labelled. The high bay warehouse is linked to the production connection with 8 palletisers by extensive handling equipment.

The warehouse uses a special double-cycle strategy for stacker cranes with 2 load handling attachments for single-depth storage. The top removal capacity is 160 pallets/hour. The second expansion phase is to provide removal of 260 pallets/hour in three-shift operation. This high capacity is achieved among other things by ABC classification and uniform distribution of the items in the aisles. Of course sell-by-date and batch management are included as well as chep pallet handling. Tour provision is carried out on 4 despatch removal tracks.
