TGW automates Bentley parts centre


When Bentley relocated its parts centre at Crewe in Cheshire, it turned to TGW Logistics Group to fit-out the new facility with an innovative automated warehousing solution.

The system that TGW provided consisted of five automated storage and retrieval (ASR) machines to service the five aisles of warehousing and 60,800 storage locations within the new parts centre. The five 9 metre high Mustang mini-load ASR machines have rigid masts and telescopic handlers that can reach “double deep” into the storage rack maximising the use of space within the available footprint. Extremely energy efficient and with a lightweight construction and improved centre of gravity, the Mustang can also achieve high acceleration and travel speeds without a top drive, which reduces the power requirement and lowers the operating cost.

As a result of the installation, Bentley has benefited from improved pick accuracy and better inventory control. By making optimal use of the space within the footprint of the building, the solution has also delivered substantial operational efficiencies and cost savings.
