Bohus chooses warehouse automation solution
Norway’s largest furniture retailer Bohus has selected a warehouse automation solution for its new central warehouse in Lillestrom
When designing the warehouse, it was Jungheinrich’s goal to guarantee Bohus as much handling flexibility as possible for its wide variety of product categories and load sizes.
Therefore, the solution includes a manual warehouse with room for up to 2,000 pallets, a fully automatic high-bay warehouse with 10,000 rack storage locations in three lanes for euro-pallets, and 1,200 further rack storage locations for special pallets measuring 2,600 mm x 1,260 mm in two additional lanes.
Stacker cranes with telescopic forks by Jungheinrich subsidiary Mias take over the loading and unloading. Two Jungheinrich STC 2B1A miniloads will be used in an automated miniload warehouse with a total of 22,000 rack storage locations.
All subsystems will be controlled by Jungheinrich’s WCS, which is connected to the customer’s SAP system.
“We sell shape, colour and design, and not all our products fit into rectangular boxes, so we were looking for a flexible solution that is capable of meeting our needs. Jungheinrich worked out a unique solution with us, and we’re enthusiastic about it,” said Håkon Bredde-Prytz, MD of Bohus Logistikk.
