Mr. Price Group Limited, a leading omni-channel, fashion value-focused retailer in South Africa, is growing fast. The company decided to bring best in class technologies together under one roof. The systems integrator Fortna led this big consolidation project. The sheer capacity and volume of this facility is highly impressive, not only in South Africa but anywhere in the world!
With a completely and newly designed plant of more than 60,000 square meters, this highly automated and amazingly space efficient hub works to host more than 24,000 pallet places, moves more than 250 cartons per minute and reaches a sortation capacity of well over 16,000 units per hour, which equals to about 60,000 inducts. And further expansion is possible due to the smart use of mezzanines and the scalable solutions overall.
Watch how Fortna and Interroll joined forces to provide modular and scalable solutions providing a maximum of support for Mr. Price Group's ambitious growth strategy!
