Scott Europe to deliver its proven materials handling solutions to major meat producer in Canada in record deal

Scott has signed a record deal to expand its materials handling business into North America. It will deliver its first fully automated warehousing system for one of the largest JBS beef processing facilities in Canada, with an estimated value of 35 Million USD.

This success was achieved thanks to an extensive cooperation between Scott Europe (ex Alvey), Scott US and partner Savoye. The new Scott automated solution will replace a fully manual system, increasing product handling efficiencies by allowing more flexible high-speed carton sortation and management.

Scott will deliver an end-to-end solution, integrating the Savoye AS/RS solutions seamlessly with their own conveying, palletizing and AGV’s solutions. The project will be managed and supplied (Scott equipment) from facilities in Europe, the AGV’s will be supplied by Scott US.

The system will manage 600 SKUs (Stock Keeping Units), allowing for optimized order management. It will enable picking of 3,000 cartons per hour, shipping of 40,000 cartons per day, high-speed palletising of 120+ pallets per hour and provide high-density storage for 85,000 cartons. It will integrate with Warehouse Execution Software for complete monitoring, management, and control of goods.

A statement from Scott said: “This project is a significant step forward for Scott and supports our strategy to expand our proven materials handling business outside of Europe. We look forward to seeing this installation go live in the upcoming two years.”
