AR Racking, in collaboration with MANISA, its distributor in Nicaragua, has been in charge of constructing the new Distribution Centre for Distributora Cesar Guerrero, Dicegsa, located very close to Managua, on the new Léon-Managua highway. The new logistics park centralises this company’s warehouses and widens its storage capacity, constituting the largest installation of its type in the country.
Dicegsa, Distribuidora Cesar Guerrero, is a well known company in Nicaragua, which since 1953 has imported and distributed pharmaceutical and consumer products to almost 20,000 domestic companies and provides employment for 1,900 people. After more than 60 years of growth and diversification, the company is facing a new era with the construction of a new logistics park that will allow it to optimise its operations and reach its growth objectives. For this project, it has confided in the solutions of AR Racking, specialists in heavy load storage, who are responsible for the installation of the new Distribution Centre together with its distributor, Montacargas y Accesorios de Nicaragua –Manisa-.
The new Dicegsa logistics park in Managua includes a warehouse of 7,250 metres that can house 300 containers and double its storage capacity. The AR Racking team has designed and installed a Clad Rack warehouse, the ideal solution for high-rise storage, since the shelving facility is part of the building structure, thereby avoiding the need for the civil works of a conventional building. The structure not only supports the load of the stored goods, but also the load of the building envelope, as well as external actions.
The Clad Rack system is 16 metres high, has six seven load levels and 22 alignments in total - simple, double and double deep- adding up to a capacity of 8,468 pallet positions. The warehouse consists of different selective storage areas designed for products with high, medium and low rotation, as well as a dynamic storage area and a controlled temperature storage chamber.
To carry out the project, the AR team has collaborated extensively with Manisa Nicaragua, jointly studying storage needs, planning the installation phases and following up so that the entire operation is carried out according to the provisions and in within the deadlines.
With this installation, Dicegsa can set itself new growth objectives, giving a qualitative leap in its logistics activity. The expansion of its stock capacity will allow it to increase imports and distribution above the 7,500 products it currently markets. Modernisation and the incorporation of the latest technologies will also bring greater productivity and an improved service. According to Edmundo Dávila, Deputy General Manager of Dicegsa, “The experience and specialisation of AR Racking and Manisa has helped us to equip ourselves with a cutting edge logistics park, equipped with the technology to consolidate our warehouses and take on our ambitious objectives”·.
