Since the launch of an Autostore system at Manor’s Hochdorf site in August 2014, the retailer has realised considerable cost savings. Process costs have been reduced permanently and a number of existing external warehouses has since been vacated.
In addition, the construction of the fully automated small parts storage solution has increased Manor’s picking performance fourfold. by the end of 2014, these cost savings spurred the logistics executives at Manor to explore the efficiency boosts which an Autostore concept could also bring to its Möhlin location. Manor recently gave swisslog the go-ahead to proceed with a new comprehensive Click&Pick project.
