Milk storage 4.0
Centrale del Latte di Vicenza has chosen Ferretto Group for its new logistics to support further growth.



  • To provide an automated storage solution that improves management and distribution of finished products.
  • To improve product traceability and management, both incoming (production area) and outgoing (delivery area).
  • To support the company’s growth prospects.
  • Automatic pallet racking system connecting production and delivery for storage of UHT milk and packaging materials.
  • Two stacker cranes equipped with a fork handling system.
  • Double-depth racking with 11 staggered load levels.
  • Storage in/out peripherals managed by a circuit with two shuttles that carry pallets from production to the automatic storage system.
  • Pallets handed to the shuttles using both LGVs and forklift trucks.
  • Five goods-out peripherals comprising gravity roller conveyors between the storage system and the picking area for manual operations.
  • Sixth outgoing channels consisting of gravity accumulator roller conveyors for a length of 17 m to move outgoing goods to the truck.
Technical details:
  • The entire system is equipped with fire prevention and extinguishing systems with specific fireproof panelling and sprinklers. The storage system has also been designed with four electronically- and pneumatically-operated domes to allow natural ventilation and smoke discharge in the event of fire.
  • A complex lighting system has been installed, featuring LEDs inside the stacker crane lanes and the in/out conveyors for maintenance.
  • The entire system was developed so as to allow maximum exposure to the public via a 60 sqm mezzanine floor with windows overlooking the inside of the warehouse, halogen lights that highlight the stacker cranes, the shuttle area and visitor passageways.
Added value:
  • Improved finished product traceability and storage management.
  • Complete fulfilment of the customer’s need to develop a project that is consistent with the company’s brand identity. In fact, the coordinated image guidelines were implemented and the features of the system fully respond to the customer’s future projects.
