New fulfillment center for e-com orders

Project Motivation

Some 8 miles northwest of Warsaw, we set up a high-capacity fulfillment center for Polish e-commerce specialist Frisco.pl. The highly automated solution, spread over 118,000 square feet, covers four temperature zones and enables Frisco to process up to four times as many orders each day than it had previously. In addition, the significant decrease in order lead time makes it possible for Frisco to offer same-day delivery to customers.

STRATEGY

Due to continuously increasing demand, Frisco.pl. has reached the limits of its capacity. To create the basis for planned growth in the years to come, an automated fulfillment center has been implemented. The solution is scalable and thus highly flexible. It boosts the efficiency of the fulfillment processes of Frisco.pl and helps to deliver orders to customers quickly while maintaining ideal product quality.

SOLUTION & MATERIAL FLOW

  •  GOODS RECEIPT AND STORAGE
    In the goods receiving area, the goods are delivered on pallets and then repackaged in totes at ergonomic workstations. Separated into dry goods and refrigerated goods, the totes are transported to the shuttle warehouse (36,000 storage locations) and put into storage. More than 4,000 order items can be stored and retrieved every hour.
  •  PICKING
    Order picking takes place at a total of 12 ergonomic workstations in two different versions: Goods-to-person picking: The required goods are removed from storage directly from the shuttle warehouse and conveyed in sequence to the TGW PickCenter workstations, where they are picked in order totes. Person-to-goods picking: At the conveyor system-based workstations, fast-moving items, as well as large and bulky items, are picked.
  •  PACKING AND SHIPPING
    All finished totes are loaded automatically into roll containers using a TGW robot cell and made available for shipping. The goods are then delivered to the customers in special transport vehicles.

Highlight: TGW SOFTWARE

The TGW Warehouse Software ensures that all processes run smoothly. It is responsible for ensuring that the goods are picked in the distribution center efficiently, just in time, and according to the customer's packaging instructions.
