Feasibility study for increasing picking and storage capacity

At the time of the study:

MHC distinguishes 2 distribution centers (DC) and aims at realizing an extension of the existing, mechanized DC in Belgium including:

  • extension of storage capacity (back-up in case of high bay failure);
  • increase picking capacity;
  • pack-and-hold storage area;
  • improvement current picking routines.


Engineer alternative logistics concept designs and investigate the related feasibility taking into account following requirements:

  • extension of highbay storage capacity;
  • improvement picking strategy;
  • improvement consolidation of unit, box and pallet picking flows;
  • increase redundancy level for mechanized highbay.


Most economically viable solution contained following elements:

  • automated high bay with 4 ASRS pallet cranes, double deep;
  • goods-to-person picking for medium and slow movers;
  • manual multi-order picking for fast movers.
