In a deep-freeze environment picking has to be completed within 30 minutes at a maximum temperature of -5 °C. This furthers the market trend for high stock
turnover and thus fully automated logistics systems. In food logistics, the share of frozen food by now ranges between 15–20 %. Logistically speaking, however, many companies in the deep-freeze industry drag behind the market development. They can barely keep up with the increasing requirements of industry and trade. At the same time, modern system design offers a lot of potential for optimisation and economisation.
With intelligent concepts for automated processes, companies can significantly increase storage capacities, efficiency, and throughput while decreasing fixed cost.
Since storage capacities have been merged and are now focused in the new warehouse complex at the head quarters, heavily hooded fork lift operators are now a thing of the past. Out of Mouscron, the family-run company Mydibel, founded in 1988, ships approx. 1,100 frozen potato products to the food industry, retail chains, and catering companies in more than 75 countries. During the design phase of his new deep-freeze warehouse, the food manufacturer decided on an automated channel storage system with shuttle technique.
