Fully automated solution for Russia's largest refrigerated warehouse
SSI SCHAEFER completed the most modern refrigerated warehouse in Russia for one of the Russian market leaders of meat imports in St. Petersburg. To meet demand, especially in the major cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia imported approximately 1.7 million tonnes of meat in 2007; around one third of the total consumption.
Besides the usual challenges associated with projects in the refrigerated sector, the equipment had to be shipped from the different SSI production facilities to St. Petersburg and the individual components including refrigeration engineering and inertisation, steel construction, roof and wall construction and IT had to be coordinated. In addition, the standards and special features of the Russian market had to be included in the overall planning and engineering phase. The range of services from SSI SCHAEFER included the creation of the logistical concept, planning and realisation of the pallet conveyor system and the rack structure as well as the integration of the warehouse management system.
The distribution centre serves as an intermediate storage facility for the company's own production plants and as a shipping warehouse for the retail market. All aspects of the logistics centre in terms of equipment, manpower requirements, quality and efficiency of processes the distribution centre is in line with market-based requirements.
