Supply Chain City, built on a 6.5 hectare site in Jurong West, has recently installed an ASRS system supplied by SSI Schaefer in their warehouse. Part of the Fusionaris® concept, the system involves a patented fusion of a Rack Clad ASRS and ramp-up integrated storage solution.
Supply Chain City is a 700,000 sqft state-of-the-art facility, and the ASRS section includes a 45m high created space for more than 66,000 pallet locations, operated with 18 cranes.
A series of mezzanines with pallet conveyors for in and out bound cargo connects the 4 floors of the Regional Distribution Centre, where case and piece picking with other value added services are undertaken.
The cranes and conveying systems in the ASRS are automated using the SSI Schaefer’s intelligent warehouse management system, WAMAS®.
YCH’s Wx3 Warehouse Management Solution enables the integration of WAMAS with YCH’s other automation processes and dock management system thereby achieving best-in-class seamless operational efficiencies at Fusionaris®.
The cranes installed, are the new latest generation of cranes manufactured by SSI Schaefer, known as Exyz, using highly innovative and “green” technology. Equipped with dual-motor independent drive that improves traction, the brakes of this device have also been designed to offer added security in compliance with the EN528 standard. The safety measures in place for better control of the cranes allows for aisle end buffers to be reduced by 30%, thus offering more storage capacity.
“SSI Schaefer is proud to be the partner of Supply Chain City, in this prestigious project, an iconic development which showcases our company’s range of products, confirming Singapore’s position as the leading Regional Distribution Centre in Asia”, said Mr Brian Miles, SSI Schaefer’s Regional Managing Director.
