20/09/2019

The cosmetics company Natura Bissé has decided to renovate its premises in Barcelona (Spain) and enjoy the advantages of automating its logistics processes, namely: higher performance, 24-hour uninterrupted service and perfect control over merchandise. In the coming months, Mecalux will build and commission a 12 m high automated warehouse for the customer.

It will consist of two, 73 m long aisles with single-depth racks on each side. In total, they will offer a storage capacity for 2,272 pallets with a maximum unit weight of 1,000 kg. In each aisle, a stacker crane will be responsible for the entries and exits of the goods.

The deployment of Mecalux's Easy WMS, the WMS responsible for controlling and managing the entire operation, will also be included in the project.
