As pioneer in the production of diary and juice products, Juhayna Food Industries is a leading Egypt-based manufacturer specialized in the production, processing and packaging of milk, yoghurt, juice and juice concentrate. Over the past three decades, Juhayna has succeeded in winning the loyalty of consumers who have come to consider their wide variety of quality products as trusted household names.
The partnership between Juhayna and Link Misr, a leading industrial company specialized in manufacturing shelving and racking systems, goes back 12 years. Juhayna offers a wide range of dairy-based products that has been continuously expanding over the years. As a result, warehousing and capacity needs expanded during the years accordingly and thus, Juhayna required the expertise of Link Misr to identify and implement the best solution for their ever-expanding storage requirements.
The need for capacity increase in existing pallet storage
As the company continued to grow, Juhayna started to face severe problems with the storage capacity. As provider of complete solutions, Link Misr were called to evaluate the current and future needs recommend the best overall solution. It soon become clear that in Juhayna’s largest cold store, covering a vast area of 1,800 square meters, an integrated, more efficient approach was required to solve their bottlenecks in storage capacity and commissioning processes.
The solution: a FIFO system
The live storage system proved ideal for Juhayna: due the product nature, the stock turnover and fast rotation of SKUs is crucial. Pallet Live storage works on a first-in first-out principle while providing extremely high levels of storage density in a given area, and automatic stock rotation, with the minimum of forklift truck movements required to handle the flow of goods.
Upon its installation, the live storage system delivered the fastest operation of all as well as providing high levels of capacity and storage. On a total of four levels, a dynamic storage system with approximately 2,680 pallet positions was successfully installed and brought immediate benefits to Juhayna. Seifeldin Thabet, Deputy CEO of Juhayna confirms:
The solution that has been implemented by Link Misr guarantees reliable “first-in, first-out,” thanks to the flow storage that ensures fast stock turnover. With the Interroll solution, we have achieved savings in a number of areas, especially with regard to space, but also in the area of energy consumption by completely overhauling our internal logistics.
Link Misr is an official partner of the Rolling On Interroll program of the worldwide Interroll Group. Whenever live storage systems are the best solution of their customers’ storage needs, Link Misr relies on Interroll as key partner for Pallet Flow modules.
