Inther Group automates hub in Ireland
Uniphar, a supplier of medical products, has contracted system integrator Inther Group to realise an automation project at its distribution centre in Ireland. The new system will substantially increase Uniphar’s capacities.
Ireland’s hospitals and pharmacies are supplied directly from the 4,400 sqm facility in Annacotty. Inther Group will equip this distribution centre with a fully automated logistics system that can process up to 4,500 order lines per hour.
A mini-load storage system will be implemented to handle the diverse product range. Two cranes will be deployed in one aisle to increase capacity and also provide optimal redundancy. The system is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2020. (mw)
