PMP Fermentation Products: optimised space with a semi-automated system

23/06/2021

PMP Fermentation Products, a world leader in the fermentation of natural products, will instal the semi-automated Pallet Shuttle system from Mecalux in its warehouse in Illinois. With this solution, the company will maximise its storage area to house a greater number of pallets in the smallest possible space.

Up to 575 pallets will be stored and managed according to the LIFO criterion

Interlake Mecalux will set up two compact racking units, each of which will occupy just 200 m2. In total, PMP Fermentation Products will be able to store 575 pallets, to be managed according to the LIFO (last in, first out) criterion.

With a capacity of 12 pallets deep, the semi-automated Pallet Shuttle system will achieve a high throughput by reducing goods loading and unloading times. To carry out these two operations, employees will use a Wi-Fi-connected tablet to send orders to the motorised shuttles.

Besides reducing times, the main advantage of this system is that it makes the most of the available space. As a result, PMP Fermentation Products will have a highly competitive solution in the smallest space possible.
