Joh. Johannson Kaffe: newly automated in Oslo

08/10/2018

Mecalux will partner up with ITO Intern Transport, a handling equipment provider, to fit out the new Joh. Johannson Kaffe distribution centre with the latest technology. The automated management of this warehouse will help this Norwegian coffee company reach never before achieved productivity levels.

The automated warehouse will consist of two aisles with double-deep racking on both sides. The racks will stand 55.8' high and 190' long, with ten storage levels. The overall storage capacity will be 3,706 pallets. A stacker crane in each aisle will insert and extract pallets from the corresponding location.

A conveyor circuit will link the AS/RS to the dispatch area, situated next to the installation. Ten live preload channels will be enabled here, where readied orders will be grouped before being dispatched from the warehouse.
