Cimcorp to implement its robots in a new logistics facility for Mercadona

15 February 2013

Mercadona, the Spanish retail company, has commissioned Cimcorp to design and implement a fully automated order picking system for fresh produce. Cimcorp will also take care of the material flow control.

Mercadona is investing in new warehouse technology at its Guadix distribution centre. To achieve improved efficiency and customer satisfaction, Mercadona has awarded Cimcorp the contract to supply the automation system for full-crate picking.

The scope of supply includes order-picking robots for fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as for meat products. The total material flow will be controlled by Cimcorp's warehouse management software, WCS. Cimcorp will also take care of the installation and start up. The system, which will start operation once the construction of the new logistics building is finished at the end of 2013, is based on Cimcorp's order processing island concept. The island is self-sufficient, taking care of goods reception; put-away; location of stored items; retrieval planning; picking of crates; sorting and preparation of crates into discrete orders; and loading of the orders onto transport units ready for delivery.

"Due to very fast order processing with Cimcorp's robots, our customers in retail and food & beverage are able to shorten lead times, which is a critical factor for perishable products with limited shelf lives," states Markku Vesa, CEO of Cimcorp Oy.
