Dematic has come out with a new automated solution for cold chain order fulfilment.

The Dematic Multishuttle 2 Freezer has been designed to reduce operating costs for customers through lower energy use.

It offers a high-density, low-energy cost solution designed specifically to meet cold chain challenges and return profits quickly.

Other benefits of the freezer include decreased labour requirements; improved product handling and FIFO rotation; increased inventory accuracy; and full shipment traceability.

The Dematic Multishuttle is an automated storage buffer for cartons, totes, trays, containers and individual bundles.

All variations of the freezer (static and flex) can now operate at temperatures as low as -30°C, which offers grocers and food manufacturers a full range of energy efficient, high-density and high-throughput storage solutions for ambient, refrigerated and freezer environments. 

Dematic is based in Belrose, NSW and supplies integrated automated technology, software and services to optimise the supply chain.
