Luis Simões, the biggest Iberian logistic service provider, chose Consoveyo to build their completely new fully automated distribution centre.
Located in Guadalajara, close to Madrid, the new distribution centre will support mainly distribution operations from customers of Luis Simões customers in the Iberian peninsula. For Consoveyo it is one of the biggest orders the company ever received. The contract was formally signed in March 2018 and the distribution centre is expected to start operation during the first quarter of 2020.
Consoveyo and Luis Simões have been building a steady, trustworthy relationship, since the first project developed together in 2008, for one of the biggest automated distribution centres in Portugal at the time.
“We chose Consoveyo because of several references and proven experience in similar projects all over the world. We were also convinced by the unique, innovative warehousing concept and the proven quality and robustness of Consoveyo’s equipment” explained António Fernandes, Project Manager from Luis Simões.
Consoveyo will provide a turnkey automated warehousing solution, including the hanging warehouse cranes as remarkable detail. The distribution centre will have a total capacity of 86,500 pallet locations (75,500 locations for ambient temperature goods and 11,000 locations for refrigerated goods) and 1,800 picking positions in the automated area plus 90,000 pallet locations in the manual area. The system will be able to manage a peak flow of 540 pallets in plus 440 pallets out simultaneously.
The picking warehouse will be equipped with 10 warehouse cranes, each suspended at the top of the racking. Special about these cranes is that they find their way via a guidance system at the top of both sides of the aisle. This unique design has the big advantage of enabling free circulation of people, forklifts, AGVs and conveyors on the ground level, combining storage, picking, co-packing and e-Commerce operations within the same area and allowing a much faster picking process as well as a much more compact and dense storage.
Finally, Consoveyo will be responsible for all maintenance operations during the first 10-years after start of operation.
