GEODIS Increases the Productivity and Safety of Its Distribution Hub
GEODIS doubled its capacity in 2014 with a new distribution hub in Nancy. The local hub handles flows of Express and Messagerie groupage goods for its local area (the Champagne-Ardennes-Est region), France, and Europe as a whole. In order to optimize the internal logistics of the new distribution hub, GEODIS Nancy asked Dematic to install an in-floor chain conveyor system.
About 60 pallet trucks and platform carriers are conveyed on the system. These transport and sort a large number of packages fully automatically. GEODIS now benefits from greater productivity and safety, and employees enjoy an improved working environment.
