Schaefer installs DC for UNICEF

UNICEF Denmark is building a new distribution centre that will be used as the central hub for worldwide relief operations, using automated equipment from SSI Schaefer.

From 2012, a fully automated high-bay pallet racking system with 36,828 storage spaces and an automatic small parts store from SSI Schaefer in Copenhagen will be storing bandages, plasters, basic foodstuffs and blankets.

So that the help does actually reach the place where it is urgently needed in good time, UNICEF is implementing the Schaefer Compact Crane (SCC) pallet racking servicing unit in the high-bay racking system. In the small parts store where smaller aid goods are stored, the Schaefer Miniload Crane (SMC) storage and retrieval device will handle the orders.

Pallet conveyor technology and electrical floor tracks form the link that conveys the goods to the workstations, from where the packages are sent around the world, once they are complete.
