Warehousing & Distribution Centres - Biltema, Sweden
Biltema is the main Scandinavian supplier of imported miscellaneous goods for the car and marine businesses. Biltema has more than 40 shops spread all over Scandinavia. The new large central warehouse, is located in Halmstad and is probably one of the biggest warehouses with an area of 50,000 m2, equal to 6 football pitches
Due to fast expansion, Biltema has invested in a new distribution centre. The choice of location was close to the container port of Halmstad with an estimated 10,000 containers per annum arriving by sea.The warehouse serves the Scandinavian market and has 116.000 pallet locations.
The ground for the warehouse demanded a reinforced base due to heavy loads and forklift handling. The foundation is 140 mm thick and the surface is 160x260 m. The warehouse is served by 60 fork lift trucks from Jungheinrich and the total length of the forklift roads are 8 km. The solution became a clean pallet installation, using pallet racking from Constructor - P90 Silverline with 116.000 pallet locations at a height 10.5 m.
