Movirack mobile pallet racking makes new F.lli Sabbini warehouse profitable

07 Nov 2018

Mecalux has installation Movirack mobile pallet racks in the logistics centre of F.lli Sabbini (Sabbini Bros.) located in Northern Italy. This solution allows maximised storage capacity and increases productivity, by sorting products according to their size and rotation.

Four blocks of Movirack mobile pallet racks were installed in one zone of the logistics centre, standing 8.1 m high by 25.7 m long and with two fixed shelf levels. The Movirack system, able to hold 2,132 pallets of 1,100 x 1,100 mm with a maximum weight of 1,300 kg, means the company can fully space-purpose available area without losing direct access to each pallet. The racks rest on the mobile bases that move both laterally and autonomously. The operator must give the ‘open’ order from a remote-control device to spread the aisle wide (where the required goods are located).

Additionally, F.lli Sabbini has equipped its warehouse with 7.5 m high, four-level drive-in pallet racks for storage. Placed in a very small space, these house 640 pallets of 800 x 1,200 mm.
