Juhayna Food Industries, an Egypt-based manufacturer of dairy-based products, optimized its warehouse facilities around Egypt with its partner Link Misr, an Egypt-based manufacturer of shelving and racking systems. The new installations also include an Interroll first-in, first-out (FIFO) flow storage solution.
As Juhayna Food Industries continuously expands, it also faces problems such as storing capacity. Due to the nature of the products, speed in stock turnover is essential. This is one of the reasons Link Misr recommended the Interroll Pallet Flow system.
The Interroll technology provides high performance, quick and easy installation and low maintenance requirements.
“The solution that has now been implemented guarantees reliable ‘first-in, first-out’ thanks to the flow storage that ensures fast stock turnover,” says Seifeldin Thabet, deputy CEO of Juhayna. “With the Interroll solution, we have achieved savings in a number of areas, especially with regard to space, but also in the area of energy consumption by completely overhauling our internal logistics.”
Interroll offers Juhayna a number of important advantages
To ensure long-term, trouble-free operation and the highest standards for safety, a selection of customer pallets were sent to the Interroll Center of Excellence for dynamic storage in La Roche-sur-Yon, France, so that in-depth trials could be performed. To find the best possible solution, different loads were tested on roller test tracks under controlled conditions. These tests took into account the gradient of the slope, the controlled pick-up speed, separation and re-start of standing pallet loads.
“We have been working with Interroll for more than 15 years, and greatly appreciate the fact that each project is considered individually and tests are carried out in advance of installation to ensure that the end customer receives a solution that meets his needs 100%,” says Ashraf Farouk, area sales manager of Link Misr.
Interroll dynamic storage is an energy-saving system characterized by its lane structure, and works according to the “incline” principle, i.e. the movement of the pallets is actually generated by gravity. In other words, it is zero-energy consumption and does not cause any impact to the environment. Due to their lane structure, Interroll dynamic storage systems can achieve maximum throughput with a minimum use of space. What is more, this system offers high system availability and flexibility, as it can be easily adapted to future market needs.
