(PresseBox) - Coop, one of the leading food retailers in Sweden, chose SSI Schaefer as their general contractor for intralogistics to provide a cutting-edge, energy-efficient and highly automated logistics solution for their new 77,000 m

Coop''s new distribution center, strategically positioned in the heart of Sweden, will handle the distribution of goods to Coop?s 800+ stores around the country. The majority of the material flow will be processed by two highly automated robotic case picking systems for chilled and ambient products. The result will be a sustainable warehouse that will handle more than 600,000 units per day.

SSI Schaefer approached this challenge with the 3D-MATRIX Solutions with goods in a programmable sequence. Together with the integration of robots, Coop will improve its whole supply chain, from the distribution center to transportation and all the way to the stores and their customers'' dinner tables.

As Sweden''s foremost food retailer and as the winner of ?Sweden?s Most Sustainable Retailer?, the new distribution center of Coop will be directly integrated into the nationwide train network, as trains form a major part of Coop?s transportation. This approach leads to fewer road transports and a smaller carbon footprint for Coop.
