Robotic automation makes its mark at Port of Gothenburg warehouse

gothenburg

The Port of Gothenburg has said that the new warehouse that is being constructed by Prologis on behalf of Logent at the Port of Gothenburg Logistics Park will be largely automated. The planned robotic automation solution will increase capacity by 50-75 per cent. Logent is due to move into the new warehouse in March next year.

“The new warehouse will be largely automated, making it highly efficient. The biggest advantages of using robots in warehouse management is that we can optimise the storage space and at the same time considerably reduce the cycle times for handling products compared with previous production methods,” said Kurt Liljergren, Deputy CEO at Logent.

The majority of the volumes that are handled will be automated and be controlled by a robotised production facility.

With a logistics solution of this nature, incoming freight will be unloaded automatically using what is known as a moving floor system. The system is integrated directly with the robotised production system, which is where the freight is broken down, sorted and palletised. The manual elements involving trucks only come into play when the sorted freight needs to be put into storage and later loaded onto a truck for delivery to the end-customer.

The majority of the volumes that are handled will be automated and be controlled by a robotised production facility.
This robotised production facility will result in a substantial increase in capacity – 50-75 per cent – compared with the current production solutions. It will also result in a significant increase in efficiency and a large proportion of the work at the new facility will change from what could be described as traditional warehouse work to becoming more machine operator-controlled.
