ECS for Mothercare

European Conveyor Systems recently completed a £550,000 goods handling system at a 300,000 sq ft national distribution centre in Northamptonshire operated by Exel for Mothercare. The NDC, which includes some 14,000 pallet racking locations and a mezzanine operates 24 hours a day five days a week in order to supply all Mothercare’s 227 stores throughout the UK.

The conveyor system delivers in-coming boxes to the storage and racking. Goods-in are unloaded from delivery vehicles using eight boom conveyors in the loading bay area, some of which are linked to pivoting luffing sections that direct cartons to the lines serving the ground or first floor, as appropriate.
