Europe‘s tallest deep-freeze storage warehouse

42-meter-tall deep-freeze warehouse

A height of 42 meters is quite a feat for a logistics property. To support optimum processes at a temperature range of +4 to -24 degrees Celsius, a truly sophisticated logistics concept is needed. One good example is the Macromex distribution hub in C?mpia Turzii – “Edenia Distribution Center”. The Romanian frozen-foods supplier has built a new distribution hub at this location together with Unitechnik as system integrator. Macromex delivers on time to international customers from this automated logistics centre. The € 17m project is capable of handling up to 2,000 pallets per day.
The high-bay warehouse is the heart of the new logistics hub and at 42m is Europe‘s tallest automatic deep-freeze storage warehouse. With only three aisles, it still has 17,000 Euro pallet storage locations. Pallets are stored double-deep on 16 levels so that space is optimally used. The storage and retrieval on each aisle is served by a 40.5m high single-mast stacker crane.
