New technology in cold storage
Kühlhaus Neuhof from Gossau, Switzerland, has introduced the Prolag World fit warehouse management system (WMS) two years after completing the upgrade and expansion of its warehouse. The company specialises in the storage of frozen meat, processed potatoes, vegetable-based semi-finished products and food of all kinds.
Neuhof’s new fully automated deep-freeze warehouse was officially inaugurated at the end of February 2019. The expansion, which cost CHF 17 million, was carried out by Gilgen Logistics. Today, the warehouse contains around 1,200 items from 30 different owners on over 13,000 pallet spaces.
Owners all have their own access to the warehouse management system. Since its introduction, the automated WMS has provided time savings of up to 75% with only four employees required. (sh)
