Food Retailer Bartels-Langness Invests in Swisslog Automated Warehouse

Logistics automation specialist Swisslog has been selected as the main integrator on a new automated high bay warehouse for Bartels-Langness (Bela), one of the largest food retailers in Germany.

The high bay warehouse, based at Bela’s existing logistics facility in Neumünster, will boast more than 11,100 storage locations served by Swisslog technology: three heavy duty Vectura stacker cranes for double-pallet handling with an operational height of 33 meters and 228 meters of ProMove pallet conveyor system.

Swisslog’s Vectura is a multi-talented and energy efficient high bay warehouse pallet stacker crane used in more than 2,000 Swisslog customer projects. A proven and reliable pallet technology with a modular design, Vectura handles one, two, or more loads in single, double, triple, and multi-deep layouts. The solution operates at heights of up to 50 meters, performing equally well in temperatures as low as -30°C and as high as +50°C. For Bela, Vectura will handle up to 200 pallets per hour.

The new high-bay warehouse and pallet conveyor system will be controlled by Swisslog SynQ software: a material flow control system, and the corresponding subsystem automation controls.  All activities on the system are fully automated, and user intervention is only required if a problem occurs.

Swisslog is the main integrator for both civil engineering and intralogistics works on the project, allowing Bela to benefit from a single supplier approach and minimize risk.

Swisslog is set to start work on site in November 2023, and the project is scheduled for completion in June 2025.
