Facts & figures

  • Company: Döhler Sp. Z o.o.
  • Location: Tarczyn, Poland
  • Industry: Food
  • Applications: horizontal transport, stacking, storing
  • Racking: 5 Toyota Radioshuttles RS150 and shuttle racking

The Radioshuttles from Toyota use the space effectively and optimise the shipment process.

Efficient cold store solution

The pallets at Döhler used to be stored on the floor and in a drive-in installation. After approaching Toyota for a new drive-in racking system for their warehouse in Tarczyn, Döhler received an alternative proposal. The Radioshuttle solution from Toyota Material Handling is ideal for cold store as it uses the space effectively and can work together with standard forklift trucks. With fast access to the goods and optimisation of the shipment preparation process, Döhler is positive about the combined shuttle and cold store solution. "Toyota had the best comprehensive offer, and with their wide experience, they are a reliable partner for us," says Tomasz Jaszczyk, Warehouse and Supply Manager at Döhler.

Professional service

The warehouse floor was a challenge as it was not strong enough to carry the large pressure from the different levels of racking. Toyota therefore proposed to use special beams to get a bigger pressure surface on the floor to mount the racking on. Thanks to this solution Döhler was able to keep their needed number of storing levels and total warehouse capacity. "We recommend Toyota's professionalism, quick response time and flexibility," says Jaszczyk, Warehouse and Supply Manager. "We value their customer approach and we think this will be a fruitful long-term cooperation.”
