Warehouse types, main properties
High-stack warehouses – 150,000 sqm
Most of our warehouses can be classified as high-stack warehouses, where in most of the cases we provide storage on high-rise stands and a smaller proportion is the block storage. In our high-stack warehouse halls, we apply a combination of unit load storage and narrow aisle technology for handling of goods and the so-called push-post technology of universal character, suitable for efficient picking and packing, in compliance with the requirements of the specific scope of products.
Our standard temperature controlled high warehouse halls in the BILK have a useful internal height of 11-12 metres, most of them provided with mezzanine levels, which are areas mainly reserved for co-packing activities and are installed with modern large-capacity packaging and film wrapping equipment.
Cross-docking warehouses – 4,500 sqm
Our cross-docking warehouses of 4-6 m internal height primarily serve the needs of our regional and domestic groupage forwarding systems, with a distribution cross-docking warehouse character. Practically no storage is carried out in the warehouse applied for cross-docking, however, large volumes pass through these warehouses every day, as the products are sorted by addresses in accordance with the needs of the delivery points and they are grouped for the delivery vehicles.
In addition to our Budapest centre, we operate cross-docking points in 6 locations in the country: Győr, Pécs, Bőcs, Debrecen and Csongrád.
ADR warehouse – 2100 sqm
The ADR products can be stored in isolation in the warehouse for hazardous goods. The materials belonging to different categories of chemical effect and fire hazard can be stored classified according to types of materials in the 3 stores constructed inside the building.
Refrigerated stores – 14,000 sqm
Warehouse units with different temperature ranges guarantee the storage of food requiring refrigeration in accordance with the requirements, where the storage, packaging, labelling and picking and packing of the refrigerated goods are carried out.
