Seat has revealed it is building an automated logistics centre at its Martorell factory outside Barcelona that will include the tallest warehouse in Spain. The facility is expected to be completed by the last quarter of 2018.
The logistics centre will cover a total area of 5,700 sq m divided into two facilities, which will store and feed inbound parts to the Martorell assembly plant.
The first of these will be 43.7 m high and will store 24,000 containers of larger parts across seven aisles, moving 500 of them an hour to the plant. The second will be 21 m high and store more than 95,000 boxes of smaller parts across five aisles. It will move 1,100 of these to the plant every hour, according to the carmaker.
