The 
goal:
Zero-touch

The Swiss retail giant Coop supplies all Swiss shops from its central deep-freeze distribution center in Schafisheim. Coop's deep-freeze solution boasts the highest possible degree of automation – from depalletizing to palletizing. Cooling in different temperature zones is crucial: In keeping with the motto "only as cold as necessary", the temperature varies between 23° F during depalletizing and palletizing as well as down to -9° F in the pallet and shuttle warehouse. The compact design and highly efficient equipment significantly reduce energy costs.

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

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