Dematic transport system for Yusen Logistics
Dematic is automating a new warehouse for Belgian logistics company Yusen Logistics Benelux. For this purpose, the intralogistics specialist will install a hybrid driverless transport system (hybrid-DTS) consisting of hybrid narrow-aisle DTS and hybrid DTS forklift trucks.
Combined with a Dematic conveyor system, this solution enables fully automated loading and unloading of cargo, and storage and retrieval of pallets.
The new warehouse in Melsele near Antwerp (Belgium) is 17 m high and spans 5,000 sqm, providing space for up to 15,000 pallets. "An efficient storage and distribution management is key to economic success. With Dematic's hybrid DTS we are the best possible 3PL provider for our customers from the health sector to deliver the right product to the desired destination on time and on budget and with continuous transparency,“ says Bruno Jacques, managing director of Yusen Logistics Benelux & Nordics.
