GreyOrange announces the deployment of its Butler system for Zalando, the leading online fashion and lifestyle platform in Europe. The new 30,000 square metre fulfillment centre, about the size of three football fields, is located in Brunna, near Stockholm, Sweden. It is equipped with the most advanced automation technology in Zalando’s portfolio.
The GreyOrange goods-to-person Butler system was deployed to manage Zalando’s growing volume of orders as well as to complement and support manual work for employees. Jan Bartels, VP Customer Fulfillment and Logistics, Zalando, says this fulfillment centre will use automation to ease employees’ workload, by taking on monotonous and non-ergonomic tasks to increase efficiency.
The Butler AI-powered system offers a deep and multi-SKU storage system. Its stringent SLA-based order fulfilment requirements were met, as many of its order-to-dispatch times were halved.
