Fully-automated DC for fresh food

The 
goal:
Fresh goods 
on a daily basis

The automatic refrigeration system is the regional cold storage system for approximately 360 Coop shops in the Northwestern Switzerland-Central Switzerland-Zurich sales region. Coop processes the shop orders for milk and confectionery products as well as meat and fish on a daily basis at +2 °C using a fully-automated and highly dynamic picking solution. This consists of a shuttle warehouse, including automated roll container depalletising in the goods receipt area and roll container loading in the goods issue area.

"We were looking for a company that operates similarly to Coop – sustainably and in an environmentally friendly manner."

Domenico Repetto, Director of Logistics in the Northwestern Switzerland-Central Switzerland-Zurich region for Coop
