Vectura looks to Dematic for dispatch automation project 16 September 2019

Processing up to 75 pallets per hour and sequencing up to 400 pallets at any one time

Dematic has won a multi-million euro contract to supply an automated collation and sequencing solution to Vectura AS, Norway’s leading logistics company for alcoholic beverages. The new system will be an extension to the Company’s automated pallet warehouse in Gjelleråsen, Norway, and will enable the business to process up to 75 pallets per hour and sequence up to 400 pallets at any one time, all within the existing footprint of the building.

As the first phase of a major project aimed at introducing higher levels of automation to the Company’s order preparation and dispatch operation, the system will be installed on a new mezzanine floor above the dispatch area to make maximum use of space.

Installation will be coordinated to avoid disruption to business, which sees 50 million units a year dispatched to government-owned Vinmonopolet stores, wholesalers and the hotel and catering industry. The project is due to go-live in the summer 2020.

Vectura believes in creating competitive advantage by investing in its value chain. This project will help future-proof the business by enabling it to provide the efficient and responsive service that the Company is known for, as it grows.
