AR Racking equips CBM’s new ambitious 12,000 m2 warehouse combining several storage systems

CBM, a world leader in spare parts for coaches, buses and trams based in Rouillon, (Le Mans, France), has unified its five warehouses into a global logistics center with 1,500 m2 of offices and a 12,000 m2  warehouse.

This new headquarters, near Le Mans, adjacent to the existing facilities, provides more storage space for the 85,000 references of spare parts for the automotive sector. In this way, the company reaffirms its commitment to provide efficient responses to the needs of public and private transport operators.

In the 12,000 m2 of the new CBM logistics centre, AR Racking has installed several combined storage systems which, by their characteristics, are perfectly suited to store the spare parts for public transport fleets that the company sells. All the storage elements have been designed in red, the colour of the CBM company, thus respecting the company's identity charter.

One of the storage systems installed by AR Racking is the Adjustable Pallet Racking AR PAL system, the conventional system for palletized loads, designed to store pallets in a mechanical and functional way using forklifts. This installation provided 11,823 new storage positions.

Cantilever racking has been installed to store long spare parts. This system is ideal for storing long and heavy items in bulk. The solution is made up of a base, columns and cantilever arms, and its installation provided the capacity to store 1,344 large or bulky products in the CBM warehouse.

In addition, 1,000 m2 of the new centre have been equipped with Mezzanine floors: independent structures, easy to assemble and adaptable to any type of space. This system makes it possible to double the storage area of a building, by gaining useful space in height.

270 linear meters of dynamic Carton Live Storage and an additional 3900 linear meters of picking storage systems were installed in the new logistics centre. The high-density storage system for cartons and light products allows goods to slide along slightly inclined wheel carriers at different lane levels, thus guaranteeing a perfect rotation of the product, following the FIFO system (First In, First Out). This solution was installed in interface with a motorized conveyor system supplied and assembled by GTSF. This system allows operators to move within the dynamic storage system and on the mezzanine floors for the supply and preparation of small parts to be sent to the dispatch area.

Samuel Turboust, CBM’s CEO says: "with this new centre and the new storage facilities in place, working conditions have improved considerably for the distributor and its employees, allowing greater speed and more comfort".

Christophe Braquehais, AR’s Key Account Manager for France, for his part, stated: “It was a major challenge for us to be able to integrate the distribution of 85,000 spare parts references in a single logistics centre, adapting the storage systems to each of the product types. This was made possible through close collaboration with the CBM teams”.
