Daifuku in Denmark

Daifuku was appointed general contractor when Danish purchasing cooperative SuperGros decided to build an additional warehouse at Ringsted. The planned integrated consignment stock warehouse with its clad rack construction, has nine aisles with 20,544 pallet locations as well as 1,984 storage sites in the order picking zone. Incoming goods are registered by the WMS and then channelled into a pallet sorter line to a sorting transfer vehicle (STV).

This is on a platform between the ground and first upper floor. The STV loop links the shipping and receiving hoisting systems to the storage and retrieval stations of the automatic warehouse and the order picking stations. Pallets are transported at speeds of up to 160 m/min. The STV loop, in addition to the higher transport speed, offers greater care in the way in which goods are transported.
