Warehouse automation helps Corteco meet demand

Corteco’s Pinerolo distribution centre in Italy has benefitted from automation to help meet aftermarket demand.

The 7,200 square meter logistics site ships around 255,000 delivery lines, annually, to 900 customers throughout the world.

The facility supplies the automotive and independent aftermarket industry, as well as general industry and aerospace.

In August 2019, FST invested in automation for this location in order to meet the aftermarket business requests: higher delivery frequency and faster goods shipments.

A Corteco spokesperson said: “A team of 15 employees from Italy, Germany and the US have worked on this extensive logistics project for about 16 months, from the approval of the investment to the completed implementation.

“Today, the warehouse has 13 autonomous vehicles that are able to pick 400 mobile racks and bring them to three workstations for employee to pack and process the Corteco product for dispatch.”

Corteco has also reported the benefits of automation during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The spokesperson added: “In times of coronavirus, it’s fundamental to work far away from each other and the robots are guaranteed not to be contagious.”
