Desobry: a new, sweet automated warehouse for cookies and chocolates


Desobry, a manufacturer of Belgian chocolate bars and cookies, will boost its growth rate in Belgium with the construction of a new automated warehouse in the town of Orcq. The installation, earmarked for finished product storage, will have a capacity to house 2,520 pallets.

The new automated warehouse for Desobry

The warehouse will stand 55.8' tall and be comprised of three aisles with double-depth rack on both sides. Stacker cranes, operating in each aisle, will insert and extract goods from their locations.

One end of the warehouse will feature the automatic receipt and dispatch of the goods. Any potential errors and accidents will be eliminated through a circuit of roller and chain conveyors, whose mission is to direct the flow of goods constantly.

The installation will also include Easy WMS, the warehouse management software developed by Interlake Mecalux, and the Galileo control module, in charge of marshalling the electromechanical parts of the warehouse.
