The collaboration between COREP and Yale® stems from the former’s clear need for handling and materials storage. Their aim was to optimise space and time and for Yale, it was to provide a more functional customer service.
The effectiveness of Yale solutions allowed them to meet COREP’s materials handing needs in the following way:
• 3 pallet stackers, (the MS10, MS12AC and MS16AC series) - ideal for optimising storage in small spaces.
• 1 electric order picker (the MO20 series) for low-level orders.
• 12 electric platform pallet trucks (MP20X series).
• 2 VNA trucks (MTC13 series), suitable for operation in very narrow aisles, allowing for an increased amount of racking in the warehouse.
The choice of VNA trucks rather than Reach trucks was made before the completion of the new warehouse, allowing for maximum freedom of decision in determining the placement of the storage lanes.
