Walmart will install a Swisslog automation system at a milk processing facility in Georgia that’s expected to be completed in 2025.

Construction of Walmart’s second milk processing facility will begin later this year. 

The retailer worked with Swisslog to open its first milk processing facility in Fort Wayne in Indiana in 2018. 

The new processing plant will be fitted with an automated storage and retrieval solution (ASRS) that will include five Vectura pallet stacker cranes with KUKA palletising and de-palletising robots, a ProMove pallet conveyor system, as well as a conveyor system for small loads. 

The automation solution operates on synchronised intelligence from Swisslog’s SynQ software, which provides warehouse management, material flow and automation control system functionality in a single platform.

“Our automation experts worked closely with Walmart’s group to incorporate lessons learned and best practices from the first processing facility, as well as improvement concepts designed to enable Walmart and its farmers to bring fresh, transparently sourced dairy to market,” says Sean Wallingford, president and chief executive officer of Swisslog Americas.
