Key Fashion Brand Implements Flexible Warehouse Automation - Addverb


Their facility handled a wide array of SKUs and needed a solution that promised accuracy and efficiency. Their inventory consisted majorly of 60% footwear, 30% apparel, and 10% accessories making inventory control a complex affair. Their objective was to develop a robust solution that could efficiently manage the operations, reduce dependency on manpower, and simultaneously save costs.   

Their requirements included a complete process from receiving material, put-away and retrieval, followed by each and case picking, order consolidation and sortation for quick dispatch according to the assigned destination. The solution had to be flexible to cater to B2B as well as B2C customers to facilitate omnichannel fulfilment. Also, they wanted to have a planned reverse logistics process to streamline all the returns from different channels and manage inventory accurately. To manage the complete end-to-end operations of the warehouse they needed a one-stop solution, for enhanced synchronisation and smooth information flow. 

Solution Implemented

Due to the rapid scaling up of their brand and the rising demand, they urgently needed to incorporate a greenfield solution in a brownfield. To achieve all their objectives, Addverb designed an innovative solution that combines the power of both fixed and flexible automation.

The solution comprised of Autonomous Mobile Robots for material movement in the warehouse, Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems like Pallet Shuttles and Carton Shuttles to optimise space utilisation. For automated material transfer and returns handling, Multi- Carton Picking vehicle was added along with sorting robots for quick dispatch of orders and cater to B2C customers. Additional systems like mixed case palletisers, Pick-to-Lights, and strategically planned conveyor lines helped in the seamless integration of fixed and flexible automation.
