Supermercados Covirán, the second-largest food distributor in Spain, has been a cooperative of food retailers servicing Spain, Portugal and surrounding areas since 1961.

With a logistics partner, the co-op explored more efficient picking support technologies and chose Honeywell Voice and its rugged and ergonomic headsets, microphones and intelligent voice synthesizers. The move enabled its DC workers to enjoy hands-free, eyes-free picking while providing the technology infrastructure to support the company’s new business model.
