“Our cooperation with Element Logic has been outstanding, and it’s only natural that we continue on this path together”, says COO in Boozt, Niels Hemmingsen.
Warehouse optimization for the future
The common goal of Boozt and Element Logic has been to enhance both companies’ competitiveness with the integration of warehouse logistics and e-commerce.
Boozt chose to implement AutoStore through Element Logic because of the practical benefits of the system, among others the possibility to integrate different systems, like ERP, WMS and WCS. The system can also be expanded on demand without shutting down ongoing operations.
Boost of efficiency
Boozt first installed an AutoStore system at their central warehouse in Ängelholm, Sweden in March 2017. Once the new AutoStore expansion is complete it will be the world’s largest AutoStore installation, featuring 500 robots and 500 000 bins.
“We’ve been operating our AutoStore since the end of March 2017, with very encouraging results. In order to keep up the good work, we’ll proceed with Element Logic in expanding our present AutoStore”, says Hemmingsen.
The integration with Boozt’s own WCS and ERP has proven to be a real booster for the online fashion distributor, improving workflow, customer satisfaction and delivery time.
Overall, the upgrade has reduced the need for storage space by a factor of four, thanks to AutoStore’s unique and compressed design.
An ever-growing business
In just seven years Boozt.com has traded for over 200 million Euros. They experienced further growth in 2018 when the warehouse was further expanded.
“Good support and dialogue are important when you automate. Our cooperation with Element Logic ensures that our robots work 24/7”, says Hemmingsen.
