6/29/2022

Wine business Vermuts Miró will improve the efficiency of its new, 24,692 ft² facility with Mecalux’s Easy WMS warehouse management software. Additionally, it will install the Pallet Shuttle system, a technology solution that inserts and removes pallets from their locations with full autonomy.

“To maximize the productivity of our supply chain, we’re going to digitize operations in our new logistics center with Easy WMS warehouse management software from Mecalux,” says Juan Manuel Corredor, Industrial Director at Vermuts Miró.

The software — to be deployed in the cloud model — will improve the time devoted to logistics operations. To do so, it will send operators precise instructions on what to do at every turn so that they can complete their tasks more quickly.

To work with the storage system, the operators will use a tablet with the WMS & Pallet Shuttle Integration module. This extension of Easy WMS incorporates basic functionalities to enable operators to manage the movements of the electric shuttles.

One of the main reasons why Vermuts Miró decided to digitize its logistics center is product traceability. “The software will control the exact location of each item, allowing us to monitor movements of stock in the facility in real time. This is essential for increasing the productivity of our business,” says Corredor.

Another priority for Vermuts Miró was digitization of information. “Our aim is to analyze costs in our supply chain and make strategic decisions to drive our business growth,” says Corredor. The Mecalux software will provide the company with constantly updated information on the status of its stock to optimize operations such as order picking and replenishment.

The new Vermuts Miró warehouse represents a step forward for the company’s logistics infrastructure. Easy WMS coordinates and orchestrates all operations with the single goal of boosting productivity.
