Logistex and Britvic have been selected as finalists in the Warehouse Operations category at the 2019 Chartered Institute for Logistics and Transport’s Annual Awards for Excellence.
Due to the introduction of new production lines at its site in Leeds, Britvic had identified an increase in forklift truck movements and the need for a significant uplift in capacity and throughput. To meet the demands of the new production equipment, reduce manual movement of stock and maintain a safe operation, the decision was taken to automate the pallet warehouse on site. Logistex worked closely with Britvic to design a solution which sees the previously manual fork truck operated system converted to a fully automated pallet shuttle solution. The new system is optimising use of space, increasing throughput, reducing truck movements and consequently improving health and safety.
The winners will be announced on 17th October at a ceremony hosted by Reverend Richard Coles.
