Egemin Automation's expertise in automated warehousing and automatic trailer loading has resulted in an agreement to supply fully automated production warehousing and automatic trailer loading systems for ConAgra Foods, Inc.
The initial system will consist of a large fleet of Egemin E'tl automatic trailer loading and high reach warehousing AGVs and Egemin's warehouse management system (E'wms). The system includes automated production line takeaways and automatic trailer loading of outbound shipments combined with over 750,000 sq ft of finished goods storage/retrieval through a combination of up to 5-high deep-lane floor and push-back racking storage.
E'wms links the logistic environment and the equipment and will provide fully automated warehouse and inventory management integrated with SAP. ConAgra Foods and Egemin are evaluating a rollout of the technologies at additional facilities.
Mark Stevenson, VP of business development for Egemin Automation Inc. commented, "Our agreement with ConAgra Foods is the result of a common vision for the tremendous savings and operational efficiencies that can be realized through end-of-line and warehousing automation and a passion to be at the forefront of innovation in our respective industries."
