Mercadona’s logistic trends

April 2, 2010 at 10:31 pm (Companies, Inventory management, Logistics trends) (, , , , )

Having my lunch today & watching news on television there was a video about mercadona logistics center .It was just hilarious how the distribution system works. Automation robots higher than 10meters working 24h in a enormous area.

The amazing was that only robots are in there doing that job. No ones lift weights and packages.

I’m trying hard to find that video so i can show you furthermore.
