Britvic have been announced as finalists in the Warehouse Efficiency category at The Logistics Awards 2019 for the automated pallet shuttle solution designed and installed by Logistex.
Britvic decided to automate the pallet warehouse at their Leeds site in order to meet the demands of new production equipment, reduce manual movement of stock, and maintain a safe operation.
The new system is optimising use of space, increasing throughput, reducing truck movements and consequently improving health and safety.
Britvic’s Site Operations Manager, Mark Young, says; “Automating the end of line has allowed us to move more pallets per hour than we could previously move. This has helped us to improve our customer service figures out of Leeds, while adhering to our health and safety needs.”
The winners will be announced at a ceremony on Thursday 26 September at The Vox, Resorts World, Birmingham, following the third day of the UK’s largest intralogistics event, IMHX. Logistex will be on stand 18L110 and will be showcasing the latest pallet and tote shuttle technology, along with a video of the Britvic site in action. Register for free here.
