New warehouse of Coca-Cola HBC in Prague – Kyje
The new fully automated warehouse of Coca-Cola HBC Česko a Slovensko is one of the current major investments in the modernization of production and logistics infrastructure in the Czech Republic in its Prague production plant. In fact, it is probably the company’s largest logistics project ever. It excels in the use of modern warehousing technologies, the degree of automation, the storage capacity of over 20,000 pallets and the high speed of automatic storage and retrieval, which works on a just-in-time system. The system is thus able to prepare the pallets for dispatch after the driver reports to the gatehouse before backing up to the loading ramp.
Elements of sustainability were also taken into account during the construction, where, for example, rainwater is drained through a newly built dry polder into the extended original wetland instead of a classic concrete retention tank, which is completely in harmony with the local nature. At the same time, noise walls were built and silencers of other noise sources were installed in order to maximally improve the comfort of the citizens of the adjacent city districts.
