3PL Neovia, has signed an agreement with Element Logic to install an AutoStore system in Desford, Leicestershire
This is the first UK project for Element Logic, and will improve the way small items are handled in Neovia’s warehouses.
Neovia is initially investing in an AutoStore system with 43,000 bins, and 36 robots. The system is designed to be scalable and is designed to be expanded in multiple phases to ensure an uninterrupted service for its client.
Operations will begin in Q4 2020.
Guido Van Gompel, solutions director, EAME at Neovia said: “In order to support the growth of our customer and anticipating a shrinking labour market, we needed a new approach.
“We looked at a variety of solutions and concluded AutoStore is the most suitable, high performing and flexible system. It has no single point of failure and has an almost 100% up-time.
