Space for growth thanks to new warehouse
B&S is an international distribution partner of fast-moving consumer goods in specific niche markets worldwide. B&S has grown considerably in the last few years. In order to ensure this growth in the future, B&S has decided to build a new warehouse alongside the current head office in Dordrecht. To fit the new building as efficiently as possible, B&S has chosen an automated total solution from Lalesse Logistic Solutions.
The high-rise warehouse of B&S has been fitted with custom-made racking produced by Lalesse.
High-rise warehouse measuring 16,000 m2
With the new warehouse an extra 16,000 m2 of storage capacity is added to the Dordrecht location. This increases the total storage capacity in Dordrecht to some 75,000 m2. The building has now been erected and the fitting of the warehouse is in full swing! On Tuesday 1 May, a start will be made to lowering the three 22.5-metre-high warehouse cranes in through the roof (24 metres high). The high-rise warehouse has been a conscious choice: in combination with automated Lalesse warehouse cranes and a fully automatic conveyor system, efficient bulk storage is realised. With the new system B&S is fit for the future.
