Highly automated distribution centre - the goal is centralisation.

The 
goal:
Zero-touch

The Swiss retail giant Coop supplies all Swiss shops from its central deep-freeze distribution centre in Schafisheim. Coop's deep-freeze solution boasts the highest possible degree of automation – from depalletising to palletising. Cooling in different temperature zones is crucial: In keeping with the motto "only as cold as necessary", the temperature varies between - 5° C during depalletising and palletising as well as down to -23° C in the pallet and shuttle warehouse. The compact design and highly efficient equipment significantly reduce energy costs

  • MINIMISATION OF SPACE REQUIREMENTS AND ENERGY COSTS: The solution's compact design enables the footprint to be considerably reduced. The volumes to be cooled and the resulting energy costs are minimised accordingly. 

  • SHOP-ORIENTED AND VOLUME-OPTIMISED: Thanks to automated packing pattern creation, Coop achieves high-volume utilisation on the roll containers, thereby reducing the transport volume. In addition, shop-oriented palletisation reduces the effort required to store items in shops.
