Acer chooses articulated trucks

Computer manufacturer Acer has taken delivery of a fleet of three Narrow Aisle Flexi articulated forklift trucks at its distribution centre in Poland.

The 215,0000 sq ft facility in Wroclaw, south western Poland, is part of Acer’s international spare parts distribution network and also provides light manufacturing services to Acer’s customers throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The configuration chosen operates with conventional low cost pallet racking with steel decks to store Euro pallets and plastic tote boxes. All the aisleways are set at 2 metres wide and can be served by Flexi Euro articulated trucks handling 1.2 metre deep pallets.

Order assembly takes place at both ground level and higher in the storage cube, with high volume, frequently picked parts stored and picked at ground level locations and slower moving lines and high value parts held in the upper levels of the system.
