Pocket sorter for omnichannel role
17 March 2021
A CHILDREN’S fashion brand has installed a omni-channel order fulfilment solution based on a pocket sorter system.
TGW carried out the project which delivers an hourly throughput of 12,000 units, and is used for consolidation and sortation of flat and hanging goods. The solution also comprises two shuttle systems, one for optimised management of stock and the second one for pre-despatch buffer.
The project took place at Mayoral´s 20,000 sq m Malaga DC and will contribute towards its workload of distributing 30 million pieces to 10,000+ customers.
The new DC allows the brand to increase its flexibility to adapt to eCommerce, reduce the total cost of ownership, and continue to increase its turnover.
The firms will begin a second phase to increase available stock and packaging stations.
“The OmniPick solution developed by TGW supports the customer in the change of its supply chain and is customised to manage simultaneously the different distribution channels of the customer. Mayoral appreciates the possibility of transporting folded garments and hanging garments at the same time in a fully automated manner, as well as the use of its distribution centre as a warehouse and buffer system. The fashion company is prepared for the future and trusts our experience for the realisation of its next projects,” explains TGW South Europe CEO David Bendien.
