Araldica Castelvero: maximised space for wine storage

19/01/2021

Italian wine producer and distributor Araldica Castelvero will install Movirack mobile racks in its warehouse in Castel Boglione (northwest Italy). This solution is ideal for optimizing warehouse surface area, as it increases storage capacity by 100% when compared to traditional pallet racks.

In just over 10,330 ft2, Araldica Castelvero will house more than 3,000 pallets with a maximum unit weight of 1.38 t. The 36-foot-high racks can accommodate pallets of two different sizes: 39" x 47" and 32" x 47". In addition to making full use of the space, Movirack mobile racks will streamline pallet loading and unloading operations, as they provide direct access to all the SKUs stored.

In total, Interlake Mecalux will equip the warehouse with two racking units on mobile bases that will move laterally and automatically. To open the aisle where the required goods will be housed, the operator will merely issue the order by means of a remote control.
