Setemar increases process automation with new equipment
Setemar, the Alonso Group company with multimodal logistics platforms in Valencia, Barcelona, Algeciras, Madrid, Murcia and Alicante, has taken a new step to increase the automation and efficiency of its operations. Specifically, the company has acquired new state-of-the-art electric forklifts for the daily work movements in its warehouses. The new equipment, characterised by its high reliability and performance, is already in operation in the facilities of more than 200,000 square metres located in Quart de Poblet (Valencia).
Some of the advantages of the new machines, which consume less energy than previous models, are their high robustness and safety. They also greatly reduce noise and fumes, thus helping to reduce the carbon footprint of the facilities. Easy to operate, the electric forklift trucks have a high capacity and are subject to continuous inspections by the manufacturer (Yale). Yet another example of modernisation and efficiency at the service of any industrial sector by the company integrated in the logistics division of the Alonso Group. New machinery that, being more reliable and safer, means considerable improvements in the working conditions of the employees who drive them.
Increased operational, economic and environmental efficiency
Setemar is currently carrying out multiple automation processes in all its services and the acquisition of this new machinery is another example of this. New solutions for optimal process management, aimed at greater operational, economic and environmental efficiency. The optimisation of logistics processes, together with the use of new, less polluting energies in maritime, air and land transport, is already a reality in an industry that is aware of the multiple challenges faced by supply chains.
