Christian Granlund, CEO, Vectura AS and Andy Blandford, managing director, Dematic Northern Europe.
Dematic has won a multi-million euro contract to supply an automated collation and sequencing solution to Vectura AS, Norway's leading logistics company for alcoholic beverages.
The new system will be an extension to the company's automated pallet warehouse in Gjellerasen, Norway, and will enable the business to process up to 75 pallets per hour and sequence up to 400 pallets at any one time - all within the existing footprint of the building.
As the first phase of a major project aimed at introducing higher levels of automation to the company's order preparation and dispatch operation, the system will be installed on a new mezzanine floor above the dispatch area to make maximum use of space.
Installation will be co-ordinated to avoid disruption to business, which sees 50 million units a year dispatched to government-owned Vinmonopolet stores, wholesalers and the hotel and catering industry.
The project is due to go live in the summer of 2020.
