Online giant Zalando will install a brand new logistics centre in Lahr, Germany, together with TGW. On the green field, they will implement a new project with a special focus on sustainability – and of course the latest technologies.
Systems integrator TGW will implement the material handling equipment for the ultra modern distribution centre of Zalando in Lahr, Schwarzwald, with a value of several million Euros. Via a TGW STINGRAY shuttle warehouse and a picking warehouse the ordered Zalando goods will be prepared for shipping. More than nine kilometres of energy-efficient conveyor equipment will transport the packages to their destinations. The test operation will already start at the end of 2016.
Markus Augeneder, Managing Director of TGW Systems Integration in Wels: “We are very happy that Zalando opted for a TGW solution. From the start, we have been working for an especially sustainable solution which will be realised with TGW Commander Controls and an intelligent energy management system. Furthermore, we will support the online experts with a service package in order to keep the installation up to date after commissioning.”
Online retail as driver
“One of the most important drivers for the business is online retail,” explains Georg Kirchmayr, President of TGW Logistics Group. “We have dealt intensely with the e-commerce topic, carried out studies and cooperate with universities. We know what we do and are therefore able to provide our customers with optimum solutions for their successful future. We know the business and the market trends, and with accurate planning and close teamwork with our customers, we find the ideal solution.”
