Shelving for picking footwear in the Gioseppo warehouse in Spain

18 Jan 2019

Gioseppo, a shoe and fashion accessory maker and distributor, has once again chosen a Mecalux storage solution to equip its Elche logistics centre (Spain). This is the second time Gioseppo and Mecalux have collaborated, after constructing an automated clad-rack warehouse with capacity for 5,844 pallets in 2008.

In the next few months, the company will get a huge block of racks with built-in walkways installed, as well as a picking mezzanine, live pallet racks and some standard pallet racks. Both the racks with walkways and the mezzanine, with four access levels, will make full use of space at heights and will quadruple the available storage surface area. More than 480,000 boxes of shoes will be organised in the carton live storage shelves. Rounding out the provision will be the installation of five 10.5 m high pallet rack aisles and eight live pallet rack channels to accommodate a total of 1,100 pallets.

“After a highly productive relationship in past years, Mecalux has shown itself to be in touch with our business needs. We chose Mecalux due to its value for money, but more so for its professional know-how. In the commissioning phase, our engineers’ originally proposed design was improved, yielding more capacity and enhanced performance.”
