Camozzi Automation, New Opening of a Unique Distribution Hub for Italy and Europe

Camozzi Automation, a Camozzi Group company specializing in solutions for industrial automation, has recently opened a new logistics hub located in Palazzolo sull’Oglio (Brescia). A best-in-class logistics hub, to which the production of the two manufacturing plants in Lumezzane and Polpenazze will also be conveyed. A strategic investment, worth approximately € 9 million, which will considerably increase the storage capacity of finished products and goods handling, becoming the distribution hub of Camozzi Automation for the entire Italian and European territory. Thanks to the adoption of new generation automated systems, the new plant will, in a single shift, handle as many goods as handled by the previous warehouses during three shifts, for a final throughput ten times higher than in the past. The distinctive feature of the Camozzi Automation distribution hub is the innovative Cuby Multishuttle system by SSI Schaefer, the first installation in Italy, powered by AI Models (Artificial Intelligence). This technology involves the use of as many shuttles as there are shelf levels, providing a handling capacity 3-4 times greater than one traditional SRM machine.
The heart of the system is the WMS warehouse management software, integrated with the company’s ERP SAP. The final solution has been developed both for the purpose of raising the efficiency of the typical processes of a logistics hub and to develop workflows that guide operators in the timely execution of orders according to the specifications of each customer, reducing the risk of error nearly to zero. A perfect match between space optimization and cutting-edge technologies that will enable Camozzi Automation to increase immediate availability and to aim for delivery within 24 hours from order confirmation, at the latest within 48 hours to reach the most distant European countries.
