THE CUSTOMER'S REQUEST
The production and distribution hub of Coca Cola HBC is located in the outskirts of Budapest, namely in Dunaharaszti. This is one of the sites with the highest concentration of picking activities with respect to the entire Hellenic facilities in Europe. The customer, who had been searching for years for an innovative technology that would allow a gradual and flexible introduction of automation into its order preparation core centres, in 2019 decided to enter into a partnership with System Logistics to develop a pilot PickMate system with the aim of validating its suitability for use within its distribution network.
- Flexibility of the PickMate system for food&beverage product management.
- SYSTORE®, the software with Best Fitting suite, optimizes space and wedges products onto pallets.
- Wearisome and dangerous man labour is eliminated.
- System reconfigurable in both functions and layout (size and number of technologies).
