TEST PASSED FOR HP HOOD FULL PALLETS HANDLING
System Logistics passed the final text for full pallets handling at HP Hood plant in Batavia (NY). The company, which manufactures and distributes dairy and non-dairy products throughout the United States, has chosen System Logistics as unique provider of the intralogistics solution, which is capable of managing a high quantity of flows at controlled temperature (+4°C).
The system consists of an automatic internal warehouse served by 9 double-depth stacker cranes, over 30 metres in height, for a total capacity of 24,192 pallet positions, input and output handling, and 2 SVL loops on two different floors. In addition, there is an automatic picking area, connected to the automatic warehouse and equipped with a layer palletizing robot, a straight shuttle and a manual picking bay.
An SVL loop consisting of 11 shuttles assures a total hourly flow of about 295 pallets.
In the picking area the Shipment Unit pallets can be made up in three different ways: layers only, layers and packages, or only packages.
All pallets are then transported to the 12 shipping bays via the SVL loop located on the ground floor, consisting of 6 shuttles.
Special highlights of the project are the 2 SVL shuttle loops, that can assure the fast handling of high flows, and the Pallet Management Software, property of System Logistics, that has been highly customised as regards picking and full pallet handling.
This test has been made during Covid19 period, where, despite the situation, the team worked hard on site respecting safety rules, or worked from home, following the project development step by step, both parts cooperating with each other: this is what makes the difference in a supplier-customer relationship!
System Logistics doesn’t stop, it rather goes ahead with its customers!
