As part of the modernising process, Mondi decided to adopt a new, more efficient storage solution for the Hungarian warehouse. In accordance with the business model, they chose Dexion’s Pallet Shuttle solution as an innovative system that can greatly reduce operating costs on the long term.
Dexion’s Pallet Shuttle System is a semi-automated storage solution for the handling of goods inside channels. The Pallet Shuttle System removes the need for forklift trucks to enter the aisles and hence offers a cost effective and time saving storage solution.
All handling of the goods within the channels is carried out using the Pallet Shuttle which is remotely controlled by the user. Handling of the pallets outside of the rack is conducted using standard forklift trucks.
The pallets are placed on an Pallet Shuttle (a battery powered pallet cart) which carries the pallets into the rack.
Mondi implemented a solution using the latest Shuttle System version from Dexion. It was used for storing both finished goods and rolls of raw materials.
Mondi is an international packaging and paper Group, employing around 25,000 people across more than 30 countries. The key operations are located in central Europe, Russia, North America and South Africa.
Mondi is fully integrated across the packaging and paper value chain - from managing forests and producing pulp, paper and compound plastics, to developing effective and innovative industrial and consumer packaging solutions. In 2014, Mondi had revenues of €6.4 billion and a return on capital employed of 17.2%.
In the Nyiregyháza factory, located about 230 km East of Budapest industrial bags are produced since 1972. In 2008 the plant was acquired by Mondi. The Slovak, Ukrainian and Romanian borders are less than 100 km away from the site. The plant serves mainly the building materials market. It manufactures both open mouth and valve bags as well as small bags and shopping bags.
Mondi’s business model is to invest in exceptional people and high-quality, low-cost operations helping them stay competitive, and giving sustainable cost advantages. Mondi promotes resource efficiency using innovative technologies and by making continuous process and product improvements.
