(Marchtrenk, September 30, 2021) HiperDino is the leading grocery chain on the Canary Islands. The retailer relies on TGW know-how for the implementation of a highly automated logistics solution: A high-performance FlashPick® system will be built in Telde (Gran Canaria) by the first quarter of 2022.
HiperDino was founded by the Dominguez brothers in 1978 and is now a market leader in the Canary Islands with 230 shops. In addition to wholesale business, the grocery specialist operates a dense network of supermarkets and also invests strongly in online sales.
Up to now, HiperDino had used a pallet warehouse with manual picking. Automating with FlashPick® will allow the retailer to increase process efficiency, speed up deliveries and continuously increase performance – all while maintaining maximum employee ergonomics.
he backbone of the solution is a highly flexible FlashPick® system for split case order fulfilment. Incoming products will be transferred from pallets to totes, after which they arrive in the shuttle system with its 24,000 storage positions. Order picking takes place at PickCenter One work stations as well as one fully automated Rovolution picking robot. The TGW Warehouse Control System (WCS) takes over control of all processes.
After the go-live, a team of TGW on-site specialists will work together with the customer's technicians to ensure that the system works at full capacity without interruption. The Lifetime Services contract also includes IT support as well as a comprehensive spare parts package.
