The omnichannel player is operating in the Nordic markets with over 100 shops, has 3,2 billion SEK in turnover 2018 and around 1000 employees. Due to their constant growth, they need to extend their existing AutoStore system that was implemented in 2012 and extended in 2015. The new contracted extension will be ready year-end 2019 with focus on optimizing warehouse capacity, and in the spring 2020 workshops will be held with Element Logic for an possible phase 2 extension that will give Swedol the last piece of a puzzle to integrate the existing warehouse in Gothenburg to Örebro Q1 2021.

“Due to our growth and the integration of our two Swedish warehouses to Örebro, we had to take action to optimize our warehouse performance. Element Logic was our natural choice of distributor, we knew that they had the competence and ability to deliver the best solution when implementing AutoStore in our warehouse in 2012 and a successful extension in 2015”.
