ULMA's solution is comprised of a 5-vehicle Multishuttle pallet system to provide automated storage, material sequencing or buffering, and picking systems. Its solution enables optimum adaptation to any warehouse configuration, maximum space usage and reduced flow times compared to standard compact systems.

Internal merchandise transportation is implemented using an AGV system (Automated Guide Vehicle). The system employs laser-guided vehicles for transport to many different addresses and accumulation points inside the warehouse. What's more, communication and data exchange take place over a wireless network (WiFi), enabling precise merchandise tracking.

Its intelligent warehouse enables SAPLEX to significantly improve the efficiency, precision and profitability of their logistics processes, and operate 24/7.

This new logistics system covers a surface area of 1,250 m2, is 15 m tall and has a capacity for 3,200 pallets.
