Bohus chooses warehouse automation solution

By Retail Technology | Friday September 11 2020 | UPDATED 11.09.20

Norway’s largest furniture retailer Bohus has selected a warehouse automation solution for its new central warehouse in Lillestrom

Bohus has chosen Jungheinrich’s comprehensive automation solutions including high pallet racking, miniload, conveyor systems and software with the warehouse set to be operational in 2021.

When designing the warehouse, it was Jungheinrich’s goal to guarantee Bohus as much handling flexibility as possible for its wide variety of product categories and load sizes.

Therefore, the solution includes a manual warehouse with room for up to 2,000 pallets, a fully automatic high-bay warehouse with 10,000 rack storage locations in three lanes for euro-pallets, and 1,200 further rack storage locations for special pallets measuring 2,600 mm x 1,260 mm in two additional lanes.

Flexible solution

Stacker cranes with telescopic forks by Jungheinrich subsidiary Mias take over the loading and unloading. Two Jungheinrich STC 2B1A miniloads will be used in an automated miniload warehouse with a total of 22,000 rack storage locations.

All subsystems will be controlled by Jungheinrich’s WCS, which is connected to the customer’s SAP system.

“We sell shape, colour and design, and not all our products fit into rectangular boxes, so we were looking for a flexible solution that is capable of meeting our needs. Jungheinrich worked out a unique solution with us, and we’re enthusiastic about it,” said Håkon Bredde-Prytz, MD of Bohus Logistikk.
