Needs and the solution

Iberfresco used to deposit all its goods in different warehouses, making task management difficult and increasing operational costs.

Determined to resolve this situation, the company requested that Mecalux construct a facility to store and manage more than 28,000 t of frozen food that it produces and sells yearly.

After studying the needs of Iberfresco, Mecalux equipped the new 32,292 ft2 frozen storage warehouse in Olmedo (Valladolid), with twenty-two 33' high, 125' long mobile racks. This upgrade provided a storage capacity of over 9,680 pallets, each weighing up to 1.1 t. The warehouse is divided into two frozen storage installations, working at a constant temperature of -11 °F. Each frozen storage chamber has a safety passageway that joins to the emergency exits.

 

Movirack: racks on mobile bases

This high-density storage system eliminates unnecessary aisles, while facilitating direct access to SKUs. Racks are placed on mobile bases that move both laterally and independently. The operator uses a remote-control device to open the required aisle, and to extract or deposit the goods.

 

Advantages for Iberfresco

  • Maximum storage capacity: the Movirack system makes full use of the 32,292 ft2 installation, generating enough capacity to store all the goods produced at Iberfresco.
  • Direct access to the pallets: there is easy access to the 9,680 pallets, thanks to the racks which move laterally along guide rails.
  • Efficient service: operations are very agile because operators only need to send a command from a remote-control device to open the working aisle and deposit or extract pallets.
