Bodley picks Jungheinrich

The Bodleian Library is using eight Jungheinrich EKS 312 order pickers at its new £26 million book storage facility in Swindon.

The warehouse has been designed around 31 aisles of very narrow aisle high density storage shelving. Each aisle is 71 metres long and the shelving is 11.4 metres high. The aisles will be served by a total of eight Jungheinrich EKS 312 Order Pickers.

Over the next year nearly six million volumes will be transferred into the warehouse.
When full, it will house some 8.4 million books, maps, manuscripts, microfilms, periodicals and newspapers dating back to the 18th century.
