In June 2018, Vegalsa began operations with Vanderlandes energy-efficient MICROSHUTTLE automated storage and retrieval (AS/RS) solution inside its DC in Sigüeiro. The system comprises three 12-metre high aisles, with 19 levels and containing 17,328 totes.
The result of the close cooperation between Vegalsa-Eroski and Vanderlande is a flexible system that is future-proof and scalable. These are vital elements in an industry with seasonal peaks that mean higher performance is needed at certain times. With a future that will see continuous improvement to stores and product ranges, innovations in online purchases and even faster deliveries, the Sigüeiro DC is well equipped to cope with any possibility.
