Due to the limited space, the automated warehouse of the project needs to be located between the two plants, and it needs to meet the logistics needs of the two plants at the same time. It is used to store foreign raw materials, hardware, semi-finished products, and finished products. At the same time, it needs to prepare materials for the production workshops on the 1st to 4th floors of the two production plants.
