Cimcorp to supply automated picking system

Mercadona, the Spanish retail company, has commissioned Cimcorp to design and implement a fully automated order picking system for fresh produce at its Guadix distribution centre.

The scope of supply includes order-picking robots for fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as for meat products.

The total material flow will be controlled by Cimcorp’s warehouse management software, WCS.

Cimcorp will also take care of the installation and start up.

The system, which will start operation once the construction of the new logistics building is finished at the end of 2013, is based on Cimcorp’s order processing island concept.
