Automatic Pallet Shuttle and stacker crane are the ‘Icing on the cake’ at Pastelaria e Confeitaria Rolo

11 Apr 2018

Mecalux will fit out the new Pastelaria e Confeitaria Rolo warehouse in Gaeiras (Portugal) with the automatic Pallet Shuttle system that will provide a storage capacity of 1,780 pallets.


The warehouse comprises two aisles with double-deep racking on both sides. Each aisle has a stacker crane, which takes goods to their corresponding locations. Once there, the Pallet Shuttle slots them inside the channel in to the furthest available position.

One end of the warehouse will have a circuit of conveyors set up in it, with a checkpoint, which will verify the size, weight and condition of the incoming pallets, so they fulfil the installation’s specifications. Meanwhile, the opposite end will get a picking station where up to three orders will be prepared simultaneously.

This warehouse solution will also include the Easy WMS warehouse management system by Mecalux, whose job is to assign locations to each product and organise order prep. The Galileo control module will manage the movements of the stacker cranes, conveyors and the Pallet Shuttle of this installation.
